    Any tips for revision for the Unit 2 Literature exam on the poems?
    AQA?

    I used the BBC Bitesize poetry page:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebit...haractervoice/
    (That's Character & Voice but they have one for every section)

    Then I wrote out the notes for each poem and annotated my poetry anthology, and just did as many past papers as I could. I'd recommend making the notes as soon as possible, then reading them through every day between now and the exam - literature is mostly a test of how well you know the text, so reading through the notes every day will make sure you know each poem really well by the time of the exam.

    Maybe try to do a past paper every day or every two days between now and then if you can to help memorise the information?

    I hope that helps

    That's really helpful, thank you!! I've already thoroughly annotated the poems I think I'm going to make a link for each one.
