    I'm doing my WJEC literature exam on Wednesday, just wondering which way you guys think is best to order your essays?

    For example if the question was on how the character of George was presented, would you strucuture your essay to go through the novel chronologically or would you just group your points into groups, e.g. themes, then relationship with other characters, etc.

    Please reply, I've been told both ways are the best by different teachers!

    As an A2 English student, what I have been told for every essay I've written in the last year and a half is NOT CHRONOLOGICALLY!

    Make sure each paragraph has a specific point and covers a specific area. I have no idea who this George is but for the way a character is presented a good idea would be to cover different facets of the character, one for each paragraph.

    Thematically is always a safe bet.
