    Hi,
    I'm currently booked out to retake the AQA Victorian literature As paper and have been struggling on how to structurally answer the questions and make sure that I am hitting all the AO's needed to reach band 4/5. I was wondering if anyone had figured out a rough essay plan on how to write the essay to the unseen extract question or had any other tips that would be useful for this paper?
    Thank you!

    For the poetry question I generally used this structure:
    Intro
    Para 1- Mainly about poem 1 but compare to poem 2
    Para 2- Mainly about poem 2 but compare to poem 3
    Para 3- Mainly about poem 3 but compare to poem 1
    Conclusion

    For the wider reading question I did:
    Intro
    Para 1- All about unseen extract
    Para 2- Compare unseen to wider reading 1
    Para 3- Compare unseen to wider reading 2
    Para 4- Compare unseen to wider reading 3
    Conclusion

    Plus I'd do a checklist down the side of each and tick off when I included alternative interpretations, form, structure, context
