    We're starting our coursework over summer, and I want to get an A by the end of A2 so I want to do as well as I can on my coursework.

    I was wondering if anyone has any tips for doing well and getting high grades at A2 English Lit, especially for coursework, as this is what we will be tackling first?

    I want to do as much work as I can over summer to try to put me in good stead for my A2 subjects!

    Really just wondering if anyone has any tips or tricks for starting A2 well.

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

    I'm going to move this into the English study help forum - you'll probably get more answers there

    I'd recommend reading around your topics, and reading criticism about your topics too. I think a wide range of knowledge is one of the most important bits of studying English. What topics/modules are you doing for your coursework?

    The best coursework starts early- as my teacher said!

    I got a high grade on mine, but annoyingly I won't know until results day. Make sure you have a good choice of texts and choose a book which has been around a while, with a suitable amount of criticism and contextual research accessible online. Know the mark scheme and if you're reading a book and like a quote or find it accessible and applicable to the theme you might want to focus on, write it down. I did 'Gone With The Wind' and there were a lot of sheets of quotes in my room!
