    I am sitting the same exam but different texts. I just reread the novels and extracted relevant quotations. I also looked at study guides that discuss themes, symbols, etc. I will start doing past papers next week and will make sure to complete each one of them.

    Just gonna join in on this now seeing as the exam is just over a week away!

    We studied The Turn of the Screw and poetry by Emily Dickinson. The poems, i am going to write a summary of and i have started to pick out the key lines/techniques and themes. I also recorded myself saying them which felt a bit stupid but listening to them a few times has them stuck in my head constantly which is good for the exam as its closed book.

    I would just suggest practise essays or even just practise essay plans, as if they are strong enough they should reflect a good essay. I am hoping for an A in this but I think this is slightly ambitious as my essays are only just getting a grade B. But you never know I suppose.

    The best thing that worked for me was to read all the books more than once, enabling you to gain a deeper understanding of each text.
