Hello, guys.

I've always been taught to use PEA which is Point Evidence Analyse in my English Exam.

However, I feel I'm not doing enough by using PEA and was wondering if anyone knew of a better way to approach analysing texts; whether they're fiction, non-fiction, articles or novels - it doesn't matter. I'm basically looking for a solid technique which will ensure I hit the top (A*) marks for my points. (I'm doing WJEC English Language and Literature).

What I have been taught was "PEE" which is make a Point, Evidence the point with a quote from the text from the poem, or story, and then explain this.
I have done my mocks and got an A/A* from doing it like this all the way through.

Are you doing WJEC? If so, how many PEEs should I aim to do for a 5 mark question and a 10 mark question on Paper 1 - Section A (Reading)

do PEEP. Point, Evidence, Explanation, Personal view. It'll get you marks across all four criteria.

Do PEA then say what technique is being used e.g. Adjective
