AQA English Literature 9-1 Watch
u can practise them in ur own time and then also under timed conditions. do u plan ur answer? if not start doing it.
its best to know how much each question is worth, how long u should spend on it and what each paper is on. (mr bruff/mrs whelan on utube)

I did Romeo and Juliet and An Inspector Calls amongst other works. My main piece of advice would be to know your texts inside out. I had physical copies of both which were annotated within an inch of their life.
Get to know the themes of the texts.
For Romeo and Juliet: love causing violence, fate etc.
For An Inspector Calls: guilt, suicide, culpability.
Also the context. What was going on at the time the texts were written and how that would have an effect on the characters and their lives and also how would that effect the authors writing.
Romeo and Juliet: Adapted by William Shakespeare in the "Elizabethan Era" where there was significant change to religion, politics, science, language and the arts. Was very religious period- catholic society where suicide would be considered a mortal sin.
Women were seen as property as were children, father would dictate who children would marry and usually for personal gain/wealth.
An Inspector Calls: Written by a working class born J.B Priestly immediately post WWII. Consider, social issues at that time, political issues, Capitalism, industrial revolution, attitudes to single mothers, familial conflicts etc. Lots of irony in this play.
Look on sparknotes found they really helped me a lot!
Hopefully this helps some! Try not to stress and Good Luck!
Hello everyone. My English literature exams are less than a month away and I find this subject really difficult. The texts I am studying are Romeo and Juliet, Frankenstein, Power and Conflict (poetry cluster) An Inspector Calls and the short stories anthology (our teacher taught us both choices for that question). I was just wondering if anybody has some tips, revision notes or model answers which could help me improve my performance in this subject. I struggle to write concisely so I never finish the exams in time, but I am currently at a grade 5/6 and my projected grade is a 7. Please help me if you can and thanks in advance
and this one for Romeo and Juliet - https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/con...meo-and-Juliet
- let me know if you find them helpful.
Please could you explain how to link it to any Jekyll and Hyde question please ?
