    How does everyone revise for english literature? I was going to just make a list of quotes and then remember subject terminology and effect

    And for language just learn how to recognise the effect and subject terminology as that's what I seem to struggle the most on

    Do you guys think this will be effective

    As well as doing this, I recommend practising writing essays in timed conditions and making sure you know your aims and assessments you need to follow.

    Assessment Objectives are a big must, I know when doing my GCSE's I wasn't aware of them but they help examiners grade your work so it's best to know what you will be marked against, i.e knowing the context of your work, making sure your work is concise as possible, and use accurate terminology etc. But no problem!

    What do you mean by accurate terminology?

    When you write an essay in English Language, nearly 100% of the time you need to use terminology to back up your reasoning and it must be accurate to identify you understand the question. Using terminology in English Literature is also important. Say for example you want to write how the weather reflects the mood of the novel, you can write pathetic fallacy and score more marks etc.
