    Usually I like to revise absolutely every possible thing that could come up on the paper. But then I thought I could maybe just prepare for the "how does" questions - e.g. "how does Ian McEwan tell the story in chapter 1". The how does questions can be in relation to the poems or either of the 2 books we have studied.

    For some reason I thought the whole exam was only for 1/2 an hour and we only do one question! Now I feel like such an idiot because I've heard we actually do two questions and of course one of those questions might not even be an easy how does question.

    Does anyone have any past papers on AS English Lit so I can see the layout and other types of questions they will ask? Thanks.

    What exam board are you using? If you type in the exam board into google and search for past papers you'll be fine. The official website for the exam boards will have past papers. E.g. OCR English literature AS past papers.

    I think when I did mine two years ago it was two questions in an hour
