    Can anyone help me with the structure of an A level essay for the literature and film they are studying? Preferably if the exam board is AQA. I don't know how analytical I have to be, how long the essay is expected to be, how we are supposed to draw comparisons between the book and film. Anything will be helpful and any helpful resources would be amazing.Thanks )

    Hi

    What's your essay title? Essentially you have to write it like an English essay: include an intro and conclusion (just laying out and summing up what you're going to say, nothing too fancy), be as specific and detailed as you possibly can and use lots of examples from the book and film. Your teacher should've given you a guideline for length, but around 500-800 words is probably a good rough estimate. Let me know if you need more specific help

    Thank you so much!! I didn't have a specific essay title, but for the exam we have to compare 'Au Revoir Les Enfants' and 'UN Sac de Billes.' I do English literature and we have to really zoom into quotes an do close analysis of language, form and structure. I was just wondering if we had to be this analytical in our French essays or if we just have to make a point and use a quote to support that point. For example, would we have to consider literary techniques like alliteration and metaphors, or is this too detailed? Are there any exemplar essays online that could help? Thanks again )
