Guys chill!
My brother was exaclty like that at the same position were in last year ago (a bit funny thing tht he didn't revise till the last week) and he had an account here and he found out the way to revise for english Lit (well of mice and men and inspector calls+Unseen conflict poetry to be in specific). Is just doing other exams learn of your mistakes write mock exams here and let other people mark it (and tell them to do it harshly no point telling them to give you an A*, meaning ya won't learn) he kept on doing that watching good revision videos in the night to get all the help he can get and got an A.




Don't assume you'll fail

Make sure you know the texts well and have studied each character, theme etc (the questions will be based around those) Make sure you can pick out quotes for them too. Also, learn about what happened historically/socially around that time, so e.g for OMAM = Great Depression, Migrant workers, women had no rights etc And learn about the author too.

For poems, make sure you've analysed in depth and can pick out literary techniques, say what they mean, the effect of it and the effect on the reader. I've heard that the poems in clusters are comparison questions? (Check past papers, the website) If so, then practise that, any poem could come up and you'd have to compare to a poem of your choice I think

Hope that helped you both
