In a week, I will be doing my English lit Animal Farm GSCE. I am quite worried about it. Any tips about exam technique and getting good marks?

Me too! The only tip I can give is to make sure you know the novel inside and out, by that I mean know what chapters certain important events are in etc, that way if you get into the exam and look at question c and panic, then you can think back and be like actually I do know this! Good luck, I'm sure it'll be fine! 😊

The good thing is animal farm is one of the BEST texts you could possibly study at GCSE. Make sure that the examiner is aware that you understand that the novella is a political allegory and that you can really 'hold the key themes and characters up to the light in order to assess their relevance and meaning'. As jennykate2000 says learn the basic structure so that you can identify roughly what order the events happen in and you can go straight to them in the exam. I got a top A* at gcse and full marks at AS in lit so if you need any help feel free to message me

Thanks so much!
In terms of the political allegory, its my world... Im a political freak and know the Stalinist regime inside-out.

But, Does waffling help at all?
Any other specific tips? Anything will be useful.
My biggest issue is over-analysing.
How do I keep it concise?
