    English Literature is filled with ambiguity; there are many permutations as to how a fictional book can be interpreted. People who are awful at other subjects (like Maths) do ludicrously well in English which I find incredibly annoying.

    I was outside top set's English lesson a few weeks ago and they lacked the provincial approach most of us generally have. These peasants were very articulate and thorough in their speech but the fact is they're not as competent in subjects such as Maths, Chemistry or Physics. To be fair, though, a small percentage are good at other subjects too, but to those who aren't, **** YOU.

    Now, I am thinking of winging my exam on Monday because I always have with English Literature. I try not to write crap about the obvious (which will be inevitable amongst the thousands of failures) but instead blag and make peculiar inferences - sometimes I attain credit, other times not so much.

    Revise or don't?

    I would revise - it doesn't have to be much, but rereading the texts and picking out important quotes before Monday will be a lot of help when you get into the exam.

    There isnt really a proper way of revising for English Lit except for just picking out some important quotes and knowing key events in the stories

    So yea just wing it if you're brave enough
