    I am doing fairly well in all my subjects including English Language. However, English Literature is threatening to jeopardize this. I am extremely hopeless at English Literature please give me techniques and things I can do to improve . My predicted grade is an A* and I am unsure right now as to whether I can achieve it.

    I'm like the opposite to you!
    I'm good at English lit but I absolutely dread English language
    If i were in your position, I would make a mind map analyzing each key quote and by analyse mean every single thing from the punctuation of it to structure...7
    In the actual exam, what i do is like down the margiin i write stuff or key terms i woudl need to include in my work.
    For example if i was analyzing a christmas carol, i would have like interpretations, structure,punctuation,caricature ,context..
    Also knowing those extra language/structural device will really show off your skills
    e.g::syntax, diction,synesthesia,caesura, enjambment..)
