    You have to ask / talk with your teachers or someone who has experience on what they're actually looking for, and how to write stuff at an A* quality - eg how you need to refer to critics or maybe compare to something you've read, as well as have to practice loads of different essay questions (or just have topics and bullet points, key quotes that may or may not be meaningful to you) because the exam is also about time and it is vey easy to run out.

    I did OCR English lit. I don't think it's any easier or any harder than any other subject, if you're willing to put the work and time into studying it then it'll be fine
