Hey guys, I achieved a grade 9 in literature this year and remember to last year when I was completely lost. I know, I would have appreciated to have some guidance, and hope many of you will find some value in these notes.

What tactics would you recommend to someone who is coming to year 11 and is completely lost in terms of English lang and lit (more the latter than the former). I genuinely have no clue as to what to do which will effectively get me good at English GCSE.

If I'm being honest, notes were the worst revision technique I used. By far, the most effective, were practice essays. You can do bullet point essays, in which you summarise each section of PEEAR. This I think is the best, especially for poetry, as if you attempt to remember points from full essays, there's a chance you could mix them up.
Full essays are important though, to practice technique and flow of paragraphs.

ESSENTIAL : GET TEACHERS TO MARK ESSAYS!!!!!
