    I'm doing Eng Lang too, the best way how I revise is that you need to do lots of past papers and mark them with the mark schemes. This will give you an indication of where you are in terms of the Bands and marks.
    Keep going through the skills for each question.

    Hope this helps

    Make sure you know the whole setting out of the exam. Eg Q1 might be inference or Q3 structural analysis. (I did this last year but I can't remember the actual specifics for each question)

    I'd just say practice, maybe try and get your teacher to mark a few questions you've done from past papers. At this point you should have accumulated a variety of skills over the past two years and are ready to put them into practice.

    Okay so basically you know for every question on the Lang paper, it requires you to answer the question. For example Q1 asks you to infer, Q2- how headline is effective and so on.

    In other words how you write.

    Are you doing AQA btw?

    Same. Section B is more relaxing. i can't be bothered to do more past papers so i'm just annotating the sources then checking the mark scheme to see if i got all the points.

    Lol yes same. The most possible reason why I got an A for Eng Lang for the mocks was mainly due to Section B. Sometimes I don't understand the sources in Section A
