    We were "banned" from using it in school! I never though of using it, actually. Thank you!

    AQA A, Unit 3, Reading for Meaning- Love through the ages.

    It focuses on the comparison of unseen texts and wider reading across all genres.

    I think this thread is for students studying the current spec, rather than the new one.

    Unit 3 Reading for Meaning is the A2 exam.

    I remember just practising for Section A because you don't need that much WR in that one.

    I would just say make sure you have at least 4 main WR you can quote on that deal with love in numerous ways.

    I did this exam, like 2 years ago and we got screwed over by the exam for the B section. Rather than focusing on a specific love, they asked us how the act of proposing was used in the texts and in our wider reading... Failed that exam so hard!

    So I would consider not just things as married love, familial love, illicit love, religious love. But also conceptual things such as proposing, households and marriage, arguments and disagreements. Things that are not so obvious when it comes to "love"!

    Good luck - I truly hated this exam!

    Sloppy OP!! Go to getrevising I uploaded all my wider ring reading up on there under the user name 'Tom'

    There's WR for prose,poetry and drama then I've assorted the quotes by theme of love ie. Friendship

    Do timed practice, this exam is a ***** in terms of time, doing section A and B timed practice was too much for me so I either did timed A section practice (annotating texts, making essay plan, writing essay) or section B practice

    Odyssey made good points I'm lucky I did my exam in 2014 and the types of love we discussed were straightforward and not so conceptual

    I don't come on TSR often anymore so just search for my work on getrevising

    Good luck everyone!
