How do you revise for AS AQA English Lit B and AQA English Lang B?Watch
I got by GCSEs with no revision, but I need to revise now and I have no clue how to do it. Do I reread the books for lit? Do I memorise the jargon for lang? Please give me suggestions.
If it helps, for lit I'm studying The Kite Runner, Enduring Love, Browning's poems and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. For lang I'm most likely to do language and gender with the categorising texts, but I still want to revise language and power a little bit just in case the gender question is awful.
on the other hand, much like yourself im also struggling with the novels i suppose just making notes on where each aspect of narrative like scene and place, time and sequence etc comes into the book would help!! think yourself lucky you're not doing the god of small things haha
hope this helped!!!
Rime is a good one to write about in section A especially for the bit where it says: 'explain how Colderidge narrates the story in chapter blah blah...' because the structure and form are almost always the same so you can have vaguely pre planned answer, a good chance think about what you want to say for that. Also, he uses almost all of the same literary devices in each section so write those down and make sure you can spot them.
I'd also say take a look at past paper questions and get in the habit of making plans and getting your teachers to check them, it will be really helpful.
If you're planning on using your other texts for the section A make sure you know the chapters really really well otherwise you'll spend way too long trying to remember what happened in that specific chapter.
