Revising for English LiteratureWatch
I'm a little stuck on how to revise for english literature, up until now I've just memorised a few quotes from my set texts:
- Never Let Me Go
- Power and Conflict Poetry Anthology
- Jane Eyre
I did a mock for both English literature papers and got a 5 overall, but I'm aiming for a 6/7 in the summer. Any advice on what I should revise for each set text, and how I should revise? Also any websites would be very useful.
Thank you in advance!☺
Instead of Jane Eyre I'm studying Frankenstein but what I think is most important is that you look into the context of the novel because this is what will help you get the higher grades and websites like shmoop go into detail about the key themes and characters.
You also get marks on the fluency of your writing, which is where most people lose marks, and I think the only way to to get better at this is by doing practice past paper questions and getting your teacher to mark them and to read sample question answers which revision guides and the AQA website usually have.
Hope this helps !
