Hi all,
I have my AS English Lit exams coming up soon, and I wanted some advice on how fellow or previous students have been revising or how they revised. For me, I write essays and do some essay plans as that's quicker, however I need tips on how to memorise key quotations, themes, historical and social contexts etc.
By the way the texts I'm studying, on the AQA B spec, are Othello, Death Of A Salesman, Tess Of The D'Urbervilles and a Poetry Anthology (includes Paradise Lost, Tithonus, The Convergence Of The Twain... the list goes on)

English Literature is the sort of subject that you have to keep practising via essays and just learning quotes.

I think what you have is just what everyone does. I did this during GCSEs, A-level English Lit and doing it now during my undergraduate in English Lit.

There is no right or wrong way. But you way seems to be the generic and most straight-forward way of revising for English Literature.

Mainly just essays and learning quotations. English Literature is very accumulative and very much a 'work and learn as you go' sort of subject. You should be quite prepared by the time you get to the revision period if you have been working consistently hard all year.
