    This is what I done for AQA English Language and Literature, it's pretty much the same thing.

    English Language: Practise your writing skills, reading also helps build your vocabulary. I found it really useful to read the newspaper daily and analysing them.

    English Literature: Make sure you are confident with the books you are studying. Try and summarise the books you know in bullet points and check if you have covered each important section. Analyse every single thing in the poem, each little bit has a meaning. Try to compare different poems.


    Hope this helps!

    I did that exam yesterday. Telling your the sources/question would be classified as cheating. Mocks are a meant to be a true reflection of what your capable of right now. In a way if you fail its a good thing, it gives you a kick up the backside and gets you revising..
