    I'm doing my GCSE's (CIE) and i'm in need of any soft of tips to get an A* grade in my coming up English Literature examination

    I'd be really happy if you could let me know :

    1. Any really good English literature revision guides that could help me get an A
    2. Any good Online resources / Youtube videos
    3. On what to focus on exactly
    3. General revision tips

    P.S : I haven't done english literature before so i'm really worried Thank you!

    My question is same so I will not start a new thread just watch your thread.

    I did my GCSEs this year. I got the CGP guides for some of my texts but they were a bit simple for me and not really very helpful but then I got the Oxford Literature Companions for others and those were better.

    I would say not to worry too much, it's not too bad. Just remember to make annotations in class and keep them and also don't throw away any essays you do as you might want to look over them later. For me timing was really hard so my English teacher told me to watch the news and try and write down as much of it as possible.
