    Hi I am currently in Year 11 and about to do my AQA English Literature GCSE. For my course I am studying An Inspector Calls, Of mice and men and Macbeth and I wanted to ask what the best study guides are. I've seen multiple ones from CGP and York notes but I'm unsure into which one is better. Can anyone tell me from their experience which study guide/s I should get for each book? p.s. I'm aiming for an A* or A, thanks.

    If you're aiming for A/A*, you need to be original with your ideas. Study guides are ok for the overview of the book, but that would only get you a C/B. It's better to research more widely, use imaginative ideas even if they have come from someone else.

    I'm doing the exact same texts as you. York Notes Advanced is best (my teacher says) but come up with original ideas if you are trying to reach As and A*s
