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

    English Language:
    • Practise your writing skills by writing different types of texts
    • Read books to build your vocabulary
    • Read the newspaper daily and analyse them
    • Watch Mr Bruff's videos on YouTube
    English Literature:
    • Make sure you are confident with the books you are studying
    • Summarise the books you know in bullet points and check if you have covered each important section
    • Analyse every single thing in every poem, each little bit has a meaning
    • Try to compare different poems
    And of course, past papers.

    Hope this helps!

    A website called 'curve learn' has great analyses and model essays for poetry, prose, OMAM, short stories etc. Definitely worth checking out.
