    I'm just doing some past papers and need some help on HOW to answer each question. For example, I'm doing a Section A, OMAM question worth 10 marks: 'What do you think of the way Candy speaks and behaves here? Give reasons for what
    you say, and remember to support your answer with words and phrases from the extract.[10]'
    I'm not sure how many points to do or how much explanation is needed etc.

    Hello sohaylart!!

    I am also doing WJEC GCSE English literature and I am also doing OMAM (+ Blood brothers and A Christmas carol).

    Unfortunately English is one of my weakest subjects (mainly because to me it isn't logical), however, during my English lit revision sessions I have used this Youtube channel called mrbruff (https://www.youtube.com/user/mrbruff/videos)

    He is excellent. Nothing but that and has taught more than my English teacher has in 4 years. He has videos on context, theme character analysis and has a few videos on how to answer specific questions in past papers of OMAM. I believe the question you're referring to is an extract question so here is his OMAM extract question guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jqDPuY11cM
