    I've been signed off from school for medical reasons and I've missed every revision class on the lead up to exams so I really need help. I'm doing AQA English Literature and I've studied Of Mice and Men, An Inspector Calls and the 'Moon on the tides' anthology, specifically the poems on conflict.
    Any help you can give me regarding answering questions, exam techniques etc. will be really appreciated.
    I specifically have a few questions though:
    What structure do I use when answering the questions?
    How long do I have to answer each question?

    It's been a bit of a while since I did GCSE Lit My advice is Point Evidence Explain. If you wanna do A Level Lit, don't do PEE, do my 'lame' character acronym of Mr. Pete Lete for the poems: Point Evidence Technique Effect Linking poem Evidence Technique Effect. But you're only on GCSE so if that's going to make your head go :eek4: :afraid: :banghead: then ignore Pete and just do Pee. And how long is the exam again? I forgot after 9 months in college. Just try to divide each section with appropriate times. That's all I can say, sorry if I'm no help. Good luck, don't stress, relax, revise, try your best and have fun! :hugs:
