    Please summarise in bullet points please!!! I only need an A in exam and I don't know what to do.

    I do:
    - Small intro, basically answering the q, and summarising what I am going to include

    - 3/4/5 points, on each of these points I will link to other parts of the novel and possibly link to context

    - Small conclusion basically summing everything up

    What about section B: 2 Parts to complete in 45 mins.... how many paragraphs for each? Do I bother with an intro/ conclusion?

    1) Make your point, preferrably it should directly answer the question and include parts of the question
    2)Embed a short quote
    3)Effect of one word, connotations and denotations
    4)Zoom out, effect of whole quote in paragraph
    5)Themes displayed
    6)Priestly's/Steinbecks message
    7)Effect on reader
    8)Small conclusion, summarising. Or you can say 'Ultimately, Priestly/Steinbeck are....'

    Yes, this can help a lot with the structure and you could refer back to the question and analyse key words of that certain quote. Link to context aswell

    Point- what you are talking about
    Evidence- use a quotation
    Effect- Explain the quotation and what effect it has on the reader
    Language- talk about key language features and go into depth that support your point
    You can also include deeper implications

    Is this used for part a or b? And can it be used on the 'Sunlight On The Grass' short stories?

    This structure is versatile and can be adapted for any essay use.
    Also, note that some questions may require you to add context, so adapt it to fit the needs of the question and criteria.
