    Hey,
    Im just wondering if anyone has any tips for revising wider reading texts? I was thinking of doing something along the lines of different sections e.g overview, main themes, quotes, imagery etc. for each text I've done.
    Can you think of anything else I could add that would get high marks when talking about it in the exam?
    Also, how much revision would you recommend doing on context? I know last year it was heavily weighted towards context, but this year less so.

    Thanks

    I tend to find all of the quotes I'm using for my wider reading and write them all up in a notebook, then transfer them onto post it notes and stick them around my room, organised by whatever themes you can see in them read over them every day and test yourself on them too If you have one quote per text then you can also transfer them onto flash cards and test yourself that way make sure you do some practice essays too, or for a quicker burst of revision you could just practice planning them

    Make sure you understand and have read all of your wider reading too - if you can't talk about it in the context of the piece of writing you got it from, then you will get less marks make sure you know any character names and plot points that your quotes relate too, and talk about the structure of your wider reading if you can too, to show a greater awareness of the text as a whole
