    Hi all,

    I'm currently studying the new AQA specification for English Lit & Lang. I'm finding revision for the Paris anthology difficult, as it is such a broad anthology with so much content.

    Does anyone have any tips for revision? Or any advice on what to look for when analysing texts?

    hi I know this is a late reply, but could help with some last minute revision, I have just made a simple table for each article so that I know a basic over view of all the texts so not blank-well hopefully when go into the exam. I've attached an example of one of the texts hope this helps. Good Luck!

    we're just doing Duffy for poetry, its a bit dull but shouldn't be too bad in the exam as there aren't many variations of questions that can be asked.

    How did you guys find paper 1? I also did CAD and The Lovely Bones and think the novel side of the exam was slightly easier than the poems?

    thought that the theme of youth was easy enough given the nature of the two poems, & the extract we had from The Handmaid's Tale was a gift really.

    Mine was brilliant I think
    Othello was a good question
    The poem was After the Lunch by Wendy Cope. (Fav poem in anthology) and I was procrastinating in the exams for about 5 mins just about how I loved the poem 😂

    I don't know what you thought but i thought it was quite predictable what they asked? i was super happy with the poetry though not so much with the book
