    Firstly make sure you know what you need to know for the exam. By that I mean, you have good knowledge of what your essay is going to be on (novel, play, poem etc)

    In terms of structure, have you used P>E>E or P>E>A>L ? Something like that?

    Basically, you make your Point
    Then you give the Evidence for it (like a quotation)
    Then Explain/Analyse it
    And Link it back to the question

    Have a look at this also

    I suggest buying the Phillip Allan Revision Guides for Literature off amazon, they're very good for top grades from what I've heard. Make sure you buy the right one though for example if your studying "Inspectors Calls" buy the Phillip Allan Revision Guide specifically for that
    Thank you for the suggestion, I will do so.
