So...how does everyone revise for English literature - personally I think it's one of the hardest subjects to revise for because apart from learning quotes - what can you really do?

Do past papers and time yourself on how long it takes you to do each question!

Advice from my english teacher is;
Plan answers to past paper questions
Write timed essays
Re-read key scenes
Choose key quotations and annotate for meaning, language and structure
Write quiz questions
Make notes on individual characters and key scenes
Revise with friends - do any of the above
Read essays
Get a study guide and read, make notes
Learn key quotes
Identify key themes and find scenes that demonstrate these themes - you need to get quick at finding these scenes
Learn what happens in each chapter so you can quickly find the right scene

I'd also do things like learn language techniques, re-read books etc.
