    I do and I can send you some when I get home on Monday lol. Although I posted one to Mr Salles in YouTube. It's the Eric one and he gave it an A*. He has other same answers too but not all of them are A*

    Also there is no point of revising in the summer holidays, seriously. Just enjoy it. Year 11 is stressful with coursework and stuff and you won't take much pressure off yourself revising in the summer as you'll forget all of it.

    I started revising English in february( and I was seen as extreme for this)!

    Yes I did do AQA . I really enjoyed English and struggled a lot with exam technique at the beginning but hopefully I should get an A overall( should get A* in exams but my coursework was low lol).

    The tip is to actually spend time just being original and find key quotes for each theme/character/ possible q etc. for top trades you need to evaluate which is basically saying how effective something is and why it is effective to the readers, which part of it.

    Also need to have close analysis of detail. So picking out specific words- e.g for the word 'ecetera' in bayonet charge you say stuff like 'this nonchalant vague word represents etc etc.'


    Glad I could help

    Yep, I have some notes on An Inspector Calls via Google Docs but none for the latter two, I'll be making notes on them during this break.

    You do have to memorise quotes for the exam. You will be only given 1 poem (have to remember quotes from another one in which you have to compare). You won't be given anything for An Inspector Calls I think so you'll have to remember quotes. Macbeth and A Christmas Carol I think you get given a short extract you have to write about in your question but also have to compare to the entire book/play (so remember quotes for them too)

    Yes as you don't know which poem you'll be asked to talk about (which they will give) and which theme they want you to compare it to another poem of your choice with (you won't be given the other poem the question will be like 'Compare the theme of the power of nature in Storm on the Island and another poem from your poetry cluster' I currently find the cgp book I have really helpful
