Hi guys,

I'm struggling with my English literature revision- I haven't made any revision notes and I generally don't know where to start or what to do. My predicted grade is 8/9 and I really want to get a 9 , but I'm so lost on how to revise for the exams. I 'winged' my mocks so I don't have a strategy in place from previous exams- but I know not revising will certainly not give me good grades, and I guess it's because English is my worst subject so I procrastinated a lot and revised the maths/sciences instead. The texts that I'm studying are: Romeo and Juliet, A Christmas Carol, The History Boys and the Power and Conflict anthology. If anyone could give me advice on how to revise for these /any tips or techniques I'd be extremely grateful since I'm kind of panicking over the lack of revision that I've done so far for this subject. Thanks

Mind maps can be super helpful for English Literature revision. I personally found past papers really helpful for just about every subject, especially with essay based subjects, but that's down to your preferences and what works for you. With mind maps, you could make loads of notes on the texts. You could even get together with some classmates and make a huge one to study from. Just learn the points about different parts of the texts that you made previously, and you'll be able to use them in the exams.

Thank you so much for your advice, I'll definitely take mind maps on board . Would you say doing separate mind maps for each theme is a good idea?
