    Hi, has anyone got any tips for getting a high grade on this coursework or if anyone has gotten a high grade in the past would it be possible for me to read it? For reference, I'm doing how humanity is represented in George Orwell's 1984 and Phillip ****'s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.
    Thanks!

    I'm sooo behind in mine! :cry2:

    But in terms of a good mark:

    - Include contextual factors, and the effect it has on readers/plot/etc. at the time of 'production' (time of publication, that type of society) and 'reception' (you) and the differences between them due to changes in attitudes, morals, norms etc.
    - Start it off with the answer to your question: introduce your essay with what you think, then go on to explain + give evidence.
    - Have 3 key arguments to your essay, comparing (looking at similarities) and a few contrasting (differences) points - but it makes it easier if your title is 'compare/explore use of X' rather than 'compare & contrast' so that you don't have to do both similarities and differences equally.
    - Strong bibliography: whenever you read an article, criticism or review of your books (or even when researching context/ society at that time), first thing to do is jot down the URL or look here for books: [Page 26 onwards]

    Hope you get the grade you want

    Thanks a lot I appreciate it I feel like I've got all the AOs, its just maybe not articulated very well. And perhaps if you want it might be beneficial to peer assess each others . Thanks again.
