So this might be a bit last minute but I have 3 weeks until study leave and I still have no idea how to learn everything for English Lit GCSE (AQA).
Does anyone have any advice for how to revise it? Also I’m not sure how to approach the essay question eg. how does Austen present marriage/wealth/women etc. - what kind of thing are they asking me to comment on?
Thank you in advance x

I suggest memorizing quotations. We need to have quotations in our essays so learn a few for each theme and each important event. Some of the main themes are: marriage, men, women, wealth, society. I would suggest memorizing about 5 for each.

With regards to the essay question, choose one of them. How does Austen present marriage? How does Austen present wealth? How does Austen present women? For each of them, there will also be an extract. Introduction, 2 extract paragraphs, 2 wider paragraphs, conclusion. Use TESCITTLES. Topic, Evidence, Summary (of quote), Context, Intention of author, Techniques, Themes, Language, Effect on reader, Structure. This is your Point, Evidence, Analysis broken up. T is point, E and S are evidence, and CITTLES are analysis. I've underlined language because that is AO2, which is the most important. You should have a lot of language analysis and close word analysis. For example, if an author uses "murder" instead of "kill", comment on how "murder" is more brutal and how it creates imagery, blah blah blah.


Hope I've helped
