I want an A* in English literature but I am struggling with the subject, how can I improve? I am really stuck with the subject. We are studying Hardy poems and the merchant of Venice at the moment. Thanks!

SQA technique really improved me overall grade. I was getting Cs and low Bs and now I am sitting nicely in the A brackets. SQA in case you don't know is statement, quotation and analysis respectively. Simply state your point, back it up with a quotation from the relevant text and finally analyse why you have chosen this quotation and how it is effective etc, though this technique is mostly used for the pros study it can work for poetry also (dont forget to include points about context if you have to and ALWAYS MAKE REFERENCE TO THE KEY TERMS OF THE QUESTION, haha. But for poetry it must be changed a little. Give your poetic technique, quote the poem, why is it effective and then any other relevant information (context if required etc). Just keep doing practice essays and get your teacher to mark them. Try the technique out. Hope it helps, goodluck

I am studying English Literature at uni. It's irrelevant about the texts. It's all about adapting your writing and improving upon it. What do you need help on?

Hey! Is this for I/GCSE English Literature? I guess you'll have to be more specific on the areas in which you are struggling with haha
