    Yo TSR!

    I am full aware of the structure of the questions involving:
    Section A Part A is AO2 - Form, Structure and Language!

    However!!

    I am not sure about Narrative methods! I am not even exactly sure what it is but I am very sure that you must include it in your answer!

    Could someone please explain what it is with a few examples? Perhaps in reflection of The Great Gatsby, The Rime or Enduring Love please? As I am Studying those.

    It may be a stupid question I am well aware but I want a solid understanding! Thanks!

    Hi, I'm doing this exam in the summer as well, I'm studying Gatsby, The Road, Tennyson and Keats. I think I've got a good understanding of the narrative methods, don't worry though! It's difficult but once you get your head around it, it'll be ok!
    So, through the year we've been told to make grids for each chapter of Gatsby. In these grids of narrative methods we have setting, time/structure, characters, voices in the text (dialogue and speech), and narrative perspective/points of view.
    All of these come under form, structure and language and so if you answer a paragraph on each of the narrative devices above, you'll do great on AO2, Section A)a) of the exam. It applies to all four texts you are studying!
    If you need anymore help just message me!

    My teacher recommends five key areas are:
    1) Narrative perspective/voices
    2) Setting
    3) Genre
    4) Chronology
    5) Language
    If you write well with relevant points for all five areas then you'll score highly.
