    I have missed 75% of my academic year due to a extenuating illness. I need A* to get into my course in KCL and also due to personal satisfaction.

    Can you guys give me revision tips for A* and how to generally revise English?
    I am working on a low C (absent that's why) and I have 2 1/4 months till my exams.


    Literature is all about learning themes and quotes and just committing them to memory, also being able to show and support what these mean.

    For language, try an A Level method I learned;
    MR G V CAP

    M - Mode (is it written, spoken, etc.)
    R - Register (the formality of the piece)

    G - Genre (style)
    V - Voice (if there is any colloquial language, etc.)

    C - Context (when and why it was written)
    A - Audience (who it was written for)
    P - Purpose (what it was written for, eg. to persuade)

    Also in language use PEEWE (point, example, explanation, word, evaluation) to focus on certain themes throughout the piece.

    I hope this isn’t to complicated and technical and hope it helps!
