    I achieved relatively highly in my one exam in English last year. All I suggest is do A LOT of private study at home. We had 71 poems to study and 2 hours a week. I studied well over half at home. Had I not I wouldn't have been prepared or able to achieve as well as I did. I made a lot of notes, wrote essays, revision pages, everything I could. I know this doesn't necessarily help much, but it's what I have gone by from the start of GCSE and I got 5 A's then so clearly I did something right. Most importantly, if you have any concerns, address them now with the teacher, that way you can sort them ASAP and get better grades in Mocks etc. That's what I did last week. I hope this helps, it might not be of any use at all though! Any other questions then please ask away!

    Hi

    I'm in the exact same situation as you right now, and I'm predicted an A for the same course as you! Firstly, use mark schemes and the SAMs commentary to their death because they're so useful! It gives you tips on how to achieve those top bands near enough

    As was mentioned before, do a lot of work outside the lesson. Learn theories and terminology so that you have a wide range

    Hey! Key thing to remember is everyone finds that something works better for them than for others. I wrote extensive notes, put key info on revision cards (coloured--associate a certain section/character/theme with different colours). What I find this year is to either use A3 paper, put a topic/book or whatever in the centre and do a huge mind map of everything you can remember. Alternatively I use A4/5 plain papered hard back books to write down revision notes. And past papers, live by them! They Will be your best tool when paired with Mark schemes!! Good luck!!!
