    Hey guys,
    I have an engish lang exam on tuesday (edexcel), where you are asked to analyse an extract from your chosen novel (I am doing Of Mice and Men). The question is how does the writer use language and techniques to portray the ______ in the extract.
    What do you think would be best way to revise for this or how are you gonna revise for it?

    I would revise this by making a list of all the features that could be in the extract, so for example, for language you could look for words with connotations.

    I would also advise that you use past papers to practice doing this question and get used to the format.

    I wrote a revision masterpost here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3904381
    For English Language specifically, you should make mind maps of key points and quotes for each theme and character and keep making them until you've memorised them

    This video helped me so much. Is quite long but it tells you literally everything you need to know about of mice and men.
