    Mr Bruff and Mr Salles on youtube are amazing!!

    Check if mr bruff does an analysis of the books you study, and watch and make notes from his videos.It's worth checking out his poetry stuff too. Another tip is to analyse structure/context/form first in a literature exam, or analyse it more than language - because a lot of people talk about language and it will distinguish your ideas from others. Good luck

    Mr Salles is amazing for english language, just search the language paper and question you need to revise

    Mate I know everyone will say this but Mr. Bruff is an absolute G. My brother got straight 5’s in his mocks but absolutely bashed our & made thorough notes whilst watching his videos and ended up with a 9 in Lit and an 8 in Lang. Proof that good grades are more the achievable with hard work. I’d also recommend sharing notes with your classmates as they might have got something you’ve missed and collaborative learning is so effective as it requires you to speak out your ideas and explain them thoroughly which works really well to condense your course content.

    You’ll be rite!! Trust me
