    Hi so my English literature exam is so close now and i'm dreading it because I don't have a very good teacher and he doesn't teach us anything so i'm practically revising myself.. ANYWAYS can anyone please provide any useful revision materials or tips for Romeo and Juliet, To Kill A Mockingbird, and also unseen poetry.I'd be so grateful, thank you so much x

    Hi, I feel like I'm in a similar position to you, even though I'm doing WJEC for English lit and lang, and I'm going to assume you're not from what you've said your exam is on, I still do unseen poetry. What my teacher has told us to do is to track through the text and highlight all the important stuff (you'll probably want to highlight the whole thing and shout it's all important like I do, but it's best to use 6-7 quotes I believe). Make sure that you don't forget the title. Your first paragraph ought to be to compare both titles and the impression they give, and then you should go through each text and use quotes, not forgetting to talk about techniques and structure. For the second text, you do exactly the same, but refer back to the first constantly, and then you stick a conclusion on the end because when do they not ask you to write a conclusion XD. I really hope this helps, and just to make you feel better, I've never even seen an English exam paper. EVER XD
