    It depends what you're studying really for what you should revise, but to get the higher marks our teacher told us to do word level analysis with multiple interpretations, use quotes where relevant and make sure to paragraph as you can lose marks if you don't. She also said use sophisticated language as this makes it sound like you know what you're on about. Hope I helped slightly

    For inspector calls the questions are normally based on a character so learning lots of quotes on this section should help as well as thing like comparision between the generations.

    Yep I'll tell you what I have written from my revision lesson the other day:

    45 minutes on omam
    2 questions - part a and part b
    Part A is a question about an extract and you should aim for 3 PEE paragraphs with 3 quotes
    Part B you need to continue the theme in part A but in the whole novel and in the context of the social situation of the USA at that time

    How would you approach the questions, would most of the questions be asking for the same type of answers? Like examiner wants to see an understanding of something from a the students?

    Well first of all dont bother with an introduction its a waste of time. Nearly all the questions are character based so use PEE or PEA . You obivoulously have to show a understanding but to get top part you have to show that your thinking is original so try dont to learn a revision guide of by heart.The phrasing of the questions is normally quite different from year to year but they all really mean the same thing. When you get the question jot down key points and some quotations and page numbers then you can write the essay like you would normally. Good Luck when are you taking the exam?
