    I really enjoy Literature at GCSE and I feel that I have good understandings of all my texts, but I can never seem to surpass a 6. In my school, they urge us to us a "PEE" structure but I feel like it restricts you from getting the top grades. Does anyone have any tips or structures for Literature essays?

    - Do your topic sentence
    - Write the quote and mention what technique is used (if you can)
    - Analyse the quote and try to relate it to the steer
    - Add a piece of context that is related to the steer

    Hope this helps
