    Hi All!
    I'm currently in year 12, doing AS English, and the March mocks, as well as May exams are coming up, very fast... I'm still very unsure as to how I should revise for AS English. I've done the Tempest, and A Streetcar Named Desire, and now i'm doing poetry (Rossetti) and also The Bloody Chamber, as well as other stories, and tbh, I havent actually been told how to revise at all... It should perhaps be common sense, but i'm kinda struggling with what to revise. I revise well with my other subjects but English seems to be very different. Is it possible for any of you to share your best revision tips and techniques, and also what sort of stuff you revise. I've got The Tempest quotations on my wall atm, as well as character mindmaps but thats all I have Thank you everyone!!

    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
