English literature GCSE revisionWatch
I need some help and advice on how to revise for the GCSE English literature exam. The books I am studying for it are Lord of the flies and Of Mice and Men.
I need to learn key themes, characters, quotes etc... for thar A* I'm aiming for
Any help much appreciated
I've also made some summaries on what you've mentioned - key themes, characters, quotes etc - so that I can quickly recap on things that are likely to come up in the exam.
Sites like BBC Bitesize may also be of use, albeit occasionally limited. I've also got a CGP revision guide for OMAM, which is great for revision in short bursts, and I'd recommend it. I assume they have one available for Lord of the flies as well, however I can't comment on that because I'm studying OMAM with An Inspector Calls.
Good luck with your exam
I shall take in to consideration what both of you have said
analyse each line of the poems on an a3 paper so a new paper for each poem and do detailed analysis and keep reading it and explain it to your self and also try doing comparison essays with different poems
So, I've been resitting my English language for 4 times now, and i get an A every time. I don't think an A is a bad grade, but I need an A* for Uni requirements. I was told by some of my friends that doing English Literature in place of English Language is a more guaranteed A*.
What do you think? Is it better than English Language? and if so which board (Edexcel or CIE) has an easier A*, syllabus and grade boundary wise.
Hope you see this Thanks in advance.
Its hard to study for English Lit.
