Well, I'm actually a mature student from the EU, but I'm going to start preparing for the CIE English A-level in less than a week and I'm going to dot he full A-level in one year.

Hey! I'm also in AS giving Eng lit CIE in Oct/Nov. How did your exams go?
Also, is The Namesake a good book? I was thinking about reading The house of mirth but I just can't seem to get into it.

Hey! I did Stories of Ourselves for Prose, Songs of Ourselves for Poetry (Paper 3).
For Paper 4, I did Twelfth Night by Shakespeare and then 2 short plays The Dilemma of a Ghost and Anowa by Ama Ata Aidoo.
The only problem I had was with Shakespeare as the english used was a bit difficult but Sparknotes has a section with line by line translation.
The rest I just read a few times and analyzed with the help from the internet.

Btw, very sorry for not replying earlier! I just saw this. Feel free to ask if you have more questions.

do you think you could send me a few sample essays that you've written for Twelfth Night? The language is kinda difficult but I personally enjoyed it a lot, and yet I have no idea where to begin when it comes to writing essays. Thanks a lot for your reply! CIE isn't very popular on tsr
