    unseen poetry only comes in y10 exams (unit 1)

    unit 2, we study two books, so that's 2 essays + 2 extracts analysation so theres no poems in y11 (thank god for that)
    but honestly i was so bad at poems even though i did get full UMS *screams*
    my technique was, dont purposely look for the writer's techinque, there's no checklist for that, you have to pick out a word and explain its effects and why it's being used. that's what gets you the marks, u dont get marks for saying ''oh thats an alliteration '', yes but why does the writer uses it? to emphasise the line, so that the specific line stands out from the rest as they want to highlight it for some reason. hoped i helped, i know it's rubbish, and i wondered why i even got full marks for the poems, i literally wrote a load of crap and the comparison was literally 5 lines xd im lucky!
    we hardly ever did unseen poetry. we're basically learning 2 years worth of work in 1 year(i'm in year 11). i'm really bad at it too!

    Oh my god. I'm so behind all the latest animes. I'm just waiting for Haikyuu and One Piece to update. AND I WANT AOT SEASON 2!!
    I haven't watched much these days becos of kdramas.
    I KNOW RIGHT! I've been waiting for AOT for like 2 year now! WE NEED IT!

    And also did you find any good motivation, it usually helps me if i think about other peoples grades and how Im going to smash those grades on results day and brag so hard, that gets me fired up. Im really competitive ;D

    I'm struggling with english lit - i'm really hoping to get an A* and am estimated to get it, but have no idea how! Our entire class has been told we're doing it all wrong, but it's how we've always been taught and told it was right! Basically, does anyone have any tips to get the A*?

    Hi guys,
    So I'm pretty new to TSR and I thought it would be helpful for me and possibly some of you to keep track of my GCSE revision and work for the actual exams next May/June.

    I'm studying 12 subjects which are:

    English Language ~ WJEC
    English Literature ~ WJEC
    Maths ~ AQA
    Chemistry ~ AQA
    Physics ~ AQA
    Biology ~ AQA
    I.C.T. ~ IGCSE (Cambridge)
    R.E. ~ OCR
    History ~ OCR
    Geography ~ AQA
    French ~ AQA
    Spanish ~ AQA

    I'm predicted A's for everything but I've challenged myself to get as many A*s and possible 😊

    I basically just want this thread to be somewhere to share revision tips/techniques, study timetables and just general GCSE stuff

    Let me know if you have any questions about anything

    Enjoy!
    Hey can we study English and Geography together on TSR?
