    I'm taking both AS and A2 English Literature and am starting to prepare for my exams. I read the specifications earlier but doesn't mention anything about if you can use an anthology in the exam, unannotated obviously?

    Can you use them in both AS and A2 exams?

    Also, any tips to do well in the exams?
    I need atleast a B to go to university

    Yes you are allowed to bring your unannotated anthology for AS im not 100% sure on A2. If you talk about form structure language and compare the poems, then you should be fine

    If you're doing English Literature B, then in AS you do get the texts but in A2 you don't
    The tips I'd give would be to follow the AO's religously

    I did AQA LitB English Literature. You can take in a clean copy - My school provided clean copies of all the texts and the anthology at AS to use in the exam The A2 exam was closed book and relied on memorised quotations to prove we understood the text or something :rolleyes:

    .. I can't believe you cant have an anthology in the A2 exam, struggle with quotations already! Are you expected to memorise form and structure of other wider reading aswell then?

    Well for my A2 exam we studied The Pardoner's Tale, Macbeth and The Bloody Chamber, the text I could always write on was Macbeth so I learnt more quotes for that one why just remembering synoptic ones for the other two. Also I found that as long as you referenced other texts then you were fine, you didn't need to learn the quotes, just themes to add and key points.
