    Okay so I'm doing my English Lit GCSE in may, I'm studying; Much Ado About Nothing, An Inspector Calls, Jekyll and Hyde and the Love and Relationships cluster of the anthology. I'm so stressed because obviously I want to do well.

    Does anyone have any revision/tips/notes/advice for any of these?

    I am also doing my GCSE’s at that time, I am reading The Woman in Black, Macbeth and a Christmas Carol so I can’t help with your specific books but I always find it helpful to take a quotation from the book and evaluate it on paper. Then I condense that information slightly, and then I condense it again, I do this a few times until I have a brief and to the point evaluation of the quotation. This helps so that you can get a lot of information on your paper in a short space of time.
    Also evaluating quotations instead of just analysing them will help you to get a higher grade.

    Wow that’s super helpful! Thank you so much! I studied both woman and black and a Christmas carol in Year 8 but never went through with doing them at GCSE as my teacher decided not to! But anyway good luck to you and thank you!
