    I’m in the same situation. I have no idea how to revise properly for it but what I do do is look over the sheets that my teacher had given me throughout the year and also look at past examples I did in class because they will be similar examples of what will be asked in the exam. Hopefully that helps a bit?

    As many past papers as possible and take them to your teacher to go through them and see what you did well and what you could do differently

    1. practice papers
    2. studying texts and analysing them (just find a random piece of travel writing etc. online and annotate it/ write an essay/ compare 2 pieces)
    3. for fiction writing, prompt sites are great because you can time yourself on a random prompt (like how the exam will be)- i use www.writingexercises.co.uk all the time!
    4. mostly brush up on exam technique, literary devices and contexts
    hope this helped, good luck!
