I’m a year nine student who is achieving level 7 (AQA) in English Lit. Therefore, I am working at the top end of the level of analysis we learn in class, so I was wondering if anybody could give me any tips on how to improve my grade further. (I hope that didn’t sound cocky, sorry if it did.)

I got an 8 in English Literature (only 2 marks of a 9- damn!) my best advice is to make sure you know your texts really well, memorise the key themes for poems and the books your studying. Also, the biggest tip for getting top marks in English is to be really perceptive and original, think outside the box rather than writing down what everybody is saying. In order to be more perceptive do wider reading and look at top grade example work and then adapt their style into your work.
Hope that helped, message me for more tips and advice

I got a 9 in both Literature and Language. I recommend watching Mr Bruff on Youtube: he gives great examples and techniques for grade nine analysis!
I was often told the highest grades will go to answers with a fresh perspective: firstly think of the basic answers, then forget them and think about out of the box answers that people wouldn't think of straight away.
Layered analysis is really rated by examiners; give different developed answers as to what something could mean from different view points.
Hope this helped!
