Hey, I'm wondering if someone could help me with revision because I have done nothing for my English Literature exam and it is tomorrow. I have around 4 or 5 hours to revise. I usually get a B without revision so im just wondering what I can do to secure that B. The exam is on OMAM and poetry. I have a revision guide for OMAM should I just read through it?
Thank you

The English Literature exam tomorrow does not combine OMAM and poetry together, at least for AQA! For me at least, the exam tomorrow should question you on your two books that you analysed. I would just skim through the books, reminding yourself of what happens in each chapter, while also trying to memorise key quotes for some themes and characters. Also, if you have time, I would try and look over past paper questions, and practice trying to plan the different questions and see how quickly you can come up with 4 points for each question and quotes to go along with it.
Whatever you do, don't stay up until an unholy time, because it won't do your memory any good!!
Good luck in your exam tomorrow, I hope this helps a bit!

Watch these in order:

which won't take you long. Feel free to make quick notes on a flash card or something.

Then read your revision guide. Research some key quotes which you'll think will be flexible (meaning you'll be able to use this quote in almost any question given).

After that, make some notes on key themes like loneliness, dreams (American Dream ---> link to historical context), racism, nature...

and finally watch these videos:

tbh, you'll be pretty much set if you manage to retain the content. Good luck!

If you're doing WJEC English Literature, the exam tomorrow is poetry and one of the books you studied in class.
I'm guessing yours is Of Mice and Men?
Then the unit 2B exam is on two different books.
Our class had Blood Brothers and Lord of the Flies.

I've got the same exam, personally it's the poetry which is more difficult so just annotating and picking out key techniques etc from poems and working on confidence in that part. For OMAM just revise quotes, key themes and characters
