    Hi, hope you see this in time for the exam!
    For section A part 1 it's easier to do poets in my opinion. In this section you don't need to include an introduction or conclusion, just a paragraph on each of these will be enough - summery of the poem, voice, setting, form, structure, and language. Remember to explore the text and evaluate this by saying stuff like ' a compelling interpretation could be ...'

    For section A part 2, it's a argument but its generally easier to agree with the quote they tell you, again you need to evaluate and it's marked on written quality, alternatie interpretations and on context

    Finally for section B you need to talk about the other three texts, evaluate interpretations of them and explore them (no context needed)

    Hope this helps! Good lucky ducky !

    I have my GCSE English Literature - Unit 1, on Monday. I'm starting to panick now as my teacher hasn't gone through the whole of the Martyn Pig book as she is never in. Does anyone have any revision materials/ notes on Martyn Pig? It would be a huge help!

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
