    Hi, I just recieved my results yesturday and I recieved an 8 in Maths and a 7 in English Literature. I wasn't as good in English Language so I won't be giving revision advice for that subject.1 Good Luck for next year and if anyone ever needs my help feel free to email me at [email protected] at any time. I still have all of my revision resource for these subjects as I am saving them for my sister who is a few years younger than me.

    English Literature

    Poetry
    I also reccomend Mr Bruff on youtube, especially for poetry. In class we would go over the poems however to me it felt slightly rushed as we only spent one lesson on each poem so it was hard to really understand each one in detail. After i requested the contents sheet from my poetry anthology i started using videos on youtube to analyse each poem. I started with poems that had many common themes as the rest of my anthology. These were poems which i felt had many chance of possibly comming up as there were so many themes relating to them. I started by watching Mr Bruff's videos and writing own as many notes as i could. Eventually i would watch many different videos on the same poem to get a better understanding of the poem, therefore if it was chosen there could be many things to say. I would reread all sets of notes whenever i was revising that particular poem.

    Bookes, Novels, plays, etc
    For My English Literture i was given revision guides by the school however i had already bought my own (YorkNotes). I find that the york notes guides were very very helpful: they were easy to read and the pages weren't too busy like i find the CGP ones can be. The explained in detail each part of the plot, characters, themes, language & structural techniques etc. They were A4 and thin which really helped for me as they werent too heavy to carry around with me. They even showed exaple answers which you could finish and included some quite clever points that my English department hadn't thought of. After my mock exams I started to read my three York Note books and would hightlight anything i thought was important or that i really wanted to remeber and if there was paragraph which i found prticulary useful I marked it with a page flag. I worked by way through these books since the beginning of February only reading a couple of pages every few days.

    Quotes
    To remeber quotes from the books, plays, etc. that i was studying i would spend a few hours skimming the book, play, etc. for important quotes. I would separate them for each character and highlight them in their assigned colour. For example i would go through the play Macbeth 1 only searching for important quotes that Macbeth says or that are about Macbeth and highlight them in Blue. I would then redo this a second time looking for quotes related to Lady Macbeth. Not only would i be highlighting these quotes but i also wrote them down. This then gave me a good amount of quotes to choose from and start trying to remember. I would recommend every day or every other day after February half term trying to remeber a one or two quotes relating to a specific character and then change the character every day or other day. Then once you can remember a good handful of quotations for each character, assign most of your quotes to a theme within the play, book, etc (only the quotes from memory though)

    Maths
    For maths all i mainly did was practice questions. I know there isn't loads of practice papers out there but there are quite a few specimen papers and mock papers from companies such as pixl (there is also a pixel app however i am not sure how you would register to it - my maths deparment registered everyone to the app). Also a main point is to know your weakness. I know if you are doing edexcell that there is a revision guide for both higher and foundation level students which has a contents, make sure that you know within that contents list what you are good and bad at. Therefore you can use websites like: Just Maths and Maths Genie etc and practice questions around your weakest topics. Also see if your Maths teacher is available one day after school for an hour maybe every month or two weeks to help you around your weaker topics.
