hey all, i have a WJEC GCSE english exam on may 20th, it is of mice and men + unseen poetry and i havent revised for it, because of my other more important science exams!

anyway, my question is what do i do to revise? i can memorise well so my plan was memorise about 2-3 quotes per character. will that be enough? i am good at constructing and also have straight A*'s in coursework to push my grade up!

thanks
any tips for unseen poetry?

Dunno if this will help but I was in the same situation a couple years ago when I was doing GCSE's.. I was with AQA but I found the BBC Bitesize website really helpful for quick note making and summaries. It may not be for you but it's worth taking a look, I managed to get an A doing it! good luck

That sounds like torture all I need to do is remember certain pages/chapters.

I'm doing of mice and men and Woman in black Do you think the poetry exam will be better? I think of mice and men is great because of how much there is to write about but i'm not too keen on woman in black :/

I wouldn't worry about it, I don't do WJEC English (edexcel) but if you have to choose another part of the book, then it might be a good idea to look up extracts you could use for different themes. Maybe you could try a practise essay tonight - you can't specifically 'revise' for English as such, just make sureyou know the structure of the book etc and how to answer the questions - you'll be fine.
