    Hello!
    I am re-taking my AS level English lit exam (and possibly will improve my coursework at a later date) so am on the look out for any extra help. I am on the 'old' specification and have been looking into buying a revision guide, does anyone have any suggestions? both on the revision tip front and revision guides, any advice is welcome
    Many thanks!

    This takes me back!

    Revision: make sure you know your quotes.

    For Section A: your best bet is to learn only 3/4 fiction so 1 novel, 1 drama, 1 prose and 1 non-fiction and get loads of quotes from that. That's all you need. I say at least about 3 quotes for the different themes: "women and the home front", mans inhumanity against man, etc etc.

    Wider reading only constitutes as 20% the rest is how well you can talk about the extract that's in front of you. So don't panic if you forget a quote or anything like that. Try and compare your point to the context of war itself if that helps.

    Practice your essays! I wish I had done this! Because it helps with those grades as well as what you're doing right, and where you're going wrong. Always focus on where you're going wrong - don't try to strengthen your "rights" cause that is wasting time. Always improve your weaknesses to make them intermediate.

    Read stuff you will enjoy! Don't feel like you have to plough through so much reading. If you don't like something, then simply swap the book for another.

    Hope you enjoy it!
