With English Literature, the better you know your exam texts (such as An Inspector Calls), the better you will do. I recommend picking out important quotations from the text in terms of themes, characters and settings, and noting them down. You will need to learn these for the exam because your exams for English Literature are not open book. In terms of structuring paragraphs, your English teacher may have tips or different structures which you should follow, but using the 'Point, Evidence, Explanation' structure often works well. You should write concise, precise paragraphs to save time and score marks, omitting unnecessary information and avoiding repetition. Quote frequently and briefly (between one to five words), and make sure to look for context to show your understanding (i.e. linking the text to the time of when the text was written and why it would be relevant to readers of that time) and subject terminology.
If you want me to make some of these tips/points clearer, feel free to let me know.
