    Hi, I'm struggling on writing concisely which is necessary when you only have 45 mins per question. Just feel like there's so much to write it seems impossible. Any help??

    Thomas Hardy- Tess of the D is one of them.
    Shakespeare is another.

    It's hard to know what specifics are needed and what things should be left out.

    Write a quick bullet point list, and then order the list leading from the most importance. You may not be able to get all the points in, but if you get your most important ones down, you may also find that they automatically include, or can include, some of the lesser observations you've made. Also, some of those smaller details may fit nicely into the conclusion.
    It's worth the 2 mins you take to do this. Also, by listing like this, you can quickly work out how much time you have for each point. There's no harm in feeling time pressure. And don't forget that this isn't supposed to be the same quality of writing as would be expected of an essay that you can do at your leisure. It's the points you make and how clearly you can express them to form your argument that count. Good luck.

    Thanks a lot. When it comes to remembering notes for certain books do you suggest writing on Q cards. How many quotes do you suggest remembering??
