thats a good way-i might try that out!
what our teacher tells us to do is to annotate all the poems properly first. then for q.1a to make a table for the poems, with the two poems on the top, (row-wise) and the things you have to analyse (language, form etc.) down the bottom (column-wise). try to make this chat as detailled as poss. but using abbreviation (example. WR-for wider reading), so that when writing the essay, it becomes easier for you.
for q.1b we've been advised to do the same thing.
yea my teacher advised us to do it that way too... infact that's the way AQA advise and if you look on their website they have examples of essay plans!

I personally think making a table would take up too much time. I think most time needs to be spent on getting your head around the texts and sequencing the order of what you're going to write. I don't know about other people, but for me, the hardest part is working out the order of the essay, not actually working out what to say about the extracts.

I also don't like planning essays using a table but I know a few people who do... personally I prefer to make random notes over the extracts and then using the bullets points they give in the question gather the ones I want to use together... how does everyone else do it?

HOLY ****.

I had no idea just how much revision this stupid exam takes!
I'm gonna revise the night before. I have done NO wider reading in terms of novels, but I know Vitae Lampada and Due of the Dead fairly well, in terms of poems. Also, I have watched a lot of Blackadder. Think I can get away with a B?

Good luck with that one I reckon that if you're good, it's possible to get away with it, providing you pick a number of key poems/other extracts that span a number of themes. Glad I haven't risked it though..

i'm feeling very moved and thoughtful at the moment as i've just finished reading 'strange meeting'-truly a great book, i recommend it to anyone who can finish it by 2moro!
i usually do a chart, as that way i know exactky what my essay will include, if i don't do a chart, i feel stuck or words when writing the essay-but then thats just me and everyone works differently!

On the AQA website, there's a script which got full marks- I thought that was interesting to look at seeing as I need an A too
Think I could really do with looking at this to brush up for tomorrow! Can't find it on the AQA site though...? Could you possibly point me in the right direction? Thanks so much

YIKES! Well I've got an A in English AS, and in my coursework module for A2...lets just say I get a low B in War Lit. If I get a high A in Othello and Keats, would I be able to get an A overall? Wah I hate this!
