    With the sciences it's easier to revise, as there's a lot of content to be memorised, but how would you go about revising for English language? Any advice would be much appreciated

    The exam board that I'll be doing for English language is AQA.

    Hey!

    I found that the best way to revise for English Language is drill in the terminology through various games - my class on the whole made games for the class to play ( or in little study groups) such as TABOO and also individual games- like snap ( term/definition)

    Other than the terminology its also a good idea to make a general plan for how to answer a given question- one in which you can manipulate to unseen questions.

    Its also a subject that comes with theorists- to learn them as a class we found it easier to minimize the information on the theorist ( only relevant information) and then build upon it, that way we learnt them in the small time frame without compromising.

    I hope that helps even just a little bit

    I found for English Language revising terminology to be the easiest way; create a list of all the terms you need to know (basics), all the ones you should know (to get your target grade) and all the ones you could know (to really impress the examiner). I made a list of about 200 terms and knew almost all of them by the time the exam rolled round two months later Also, if you're on AQA B, then honestly I recommend just categorising EVERYTHING. It got to the point where I was analysing why my make up wipes used premodifiers alongside a DVD cover. If you can group random things in your house, you'll be able to group whatever on the exam without panicking It's also good practise away from the very few past papers available!
