    english help please

    (Original post by fashionliv1)
    Any revision notes or essentially anything related to A Streetcar Named Desire will do, specifically A/A* ones as i need lots of help as i just can't seem to get past a B so how do i make sure my writing reaches at least an A grade and even an A* grade?
    Look at the mark scheme. Honest to god this is how I got an A* in English lit A level. Only once you understand how the mark scheme works and how to exploit it can you really get those top grades. I studied streetcar for AS and it's a great text for thinking outside of the box so do that and that will engage the examiner allowing you to access those higher grades. The best essays are the most original ones - try to focus on your interpretation of the text and that can score you some serious points. What exam board are you with?
