    I honestly have no clue how to revise for lit or where to begin. I know I've left it a little late but I have done some revision don't worry.
    I'm on the exam board WJEC unfortunately, meaning I can't take a clean copy of the text into the exam so have to learn a lot of quotes too.

    The three texts I'm studying are: An Inspector Calls, Heroes and the classic, Of Mice and Men.
    Then we also have an unseen poetry section where we usually have to compare two poems of a similar theme I believe?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    First, do a mind map or bullet point about each text and the major themes and aspects of it and relate how each point affects the audience, always rememer to relate to the audience. Always remember to compare poems and show the similarities and differences between the two and never do one paragraph on one poem then another paragraph on the other poem, talk about both poems together in their similarities and differences. If you can then I strongly suggest you buy the CGP English revision guide which I believe is £2 if I'm right, the guide is excellent and covers your topics and how to compare poems which is very helpful. There is also BBC English bitesize which is easy to use and access. Hope this helped.

    I did AQA IGCSE but I made sure I knew the texts really well.
    Make sure you know significant themes & quotes for the themes & what you would say to analyse them. Do every practice Q you can find. Practice timing.

    I don't do WJEC but I found these videos on Youtube that may be of use:

    This channel has a lot of videos for AIC and OMAM :

    Here's some more videos for OMAM (they might be AQA specific though, not entirely sure how the exam boards differ )

    Make sure that you study the texts properly and ask your teacher about something that you don't get. And use past papers for poetry. By doing this you van see the types of poems they hive you. If you have already done this thenjust search for random poems off google and practise annotating them. Use YouTube videos, they will help a lot for both seen and unseen.
    For the novels you could make a character profile for each person and include quotes related to them.
