New GCSE: English Literature and Language Tips, anyone?Watch
Specifically, my school takes GCSE English Language and Literature from Edexcel on the new 1-9 specification. Any tips for the new exams? We're still not able to look at the past papers, which frustrates me a little...
Is there any specific (or general too, I suppose) advice you could give us?
Your school will have sample papers from last year, use them instead of the past papers. We (I’m a current Year 12) didn’t have the past papers and we were fine. The key to the GCSE Language paper is just doing a checklist of the techniques you need to get in and put them in as you go. They are you on that. No matter how good your creative writing is, it doesn’t matter if you don’t use techniques.
Looking forward to more replies!
