    (History) When writing a plan, write the factors and the significance of those factors, this may help in avoiding description.

    (Lit) Plenty of language, structure analysis with short embbeded quotations. Dont just plop a quote anywhere but make sure it links and always analyse what it means, what effect it has, what the author is trying to say etc. Include contextual analysis (paticularly in c/w) & try and think of original/different ideas esp. in the exam that help the examiners to look at it in a more positive light

    Just started English Lit, i'm wondering whether it's like GCSE where you pick one quote per point to delve into in detail or would numerous quotes in one paragraph be required to make a point?
    Thank you

    Don't quote me on this but I can only tell you what I did and what works for me (I got an A at AS.) What I'd recommend is talking about two good quotes and use those to analyse language, structure etc. I think it's way easier to judge it when you start writing because you'll know if you need one more quote or analyse the sane quote in detail.
