    Hi everyone!
    I have my first English lit exam on Monday and I was just wondering if anyone has any tips or advice they can lend on how to achieve the top band. I am studying TKAM and The Crucible. Thanks in advance!

    Oh I'm extremely nervous! I'm not too sure but perhaps Danforth may come up?

    That would be great actually I can think of some things to say about him how about TKAM? That's gonna be a real pain I can tell - how've your exams been so far?

    Yeah I think Danforth is a great character! So much to talk about! Hmm TKAM can be completely random! I have no idea! Maybe aunt Alexandra? Has she come up before? They have been surprisingly good- thanks for asking? How's yours been doing? I'm sure they've gone great?

    That would be great... For some reason I feel strongest with Danforth and Alexandra, would be good! But of course the exam gods aren't going to make that happen for us are they (thanks aqa ) well done, good luck in all the rest of yours. They're okay thank you, some went better than others I think!

    I study TKAM too, I think Aunt Alexandra has already come up unfortunately! I have a feeling Calpurnia might come up, I hope so anyway. Have you seen this website: http://www.gradesaver.com/to-kill-a-...y-guide/themes

    Haha this is my exact question! You need to talk about language/form/structure and how this is used by Miller to present ideas/themes and attitudes. I have an exemplar essay that achieved full marks if you want it?
