i know right it's sooo hard

for poetry im doing detailed comparison plans of the poems so when i go into the exam i already and see the poem ill already know what to compare it to and the points ill make and ill just jot a rough plan so i don't forget it

for shakespeare and 19th century novel im just doing plans for each theme and character which will have 5 point each

and for modern im doing AIC which is the only part i like about english lit as well as poetry so im kinda just looking at videos and learning quotes for each theme and character

hope this helps!!!!!!!!! x

learn ur concepts- like look at the context or time the author was writing in and what their purpose was, its always a good idea to start ur essays w that.

hmm....... i ask that question myself all the time.... if there is a lot of time at hand i would suggest to make some sections in mind ( it helps me to keep my points crisp ) for context , a brief intro on author and his life (writer have such interesting life i mean like the controversy of Shakespeare not being the writer of his works like what!!! ) that helps you get interested in work(get all the juicy stuff), then i would search through themes and characters if its a fiction or drama and make points just to keep myself open for various interpretations that comes while writing an answer and a conclusion ( just summarizing) . so while preparing /revising i already have an entire structure of answer at hand. (pro tip: keep synonyms for 'suggest' handy ).
material- i usually watch YouTube video for context - Victorian , modern etc.
i have my exams coming up soon so i thought this would help me revise as well.sorry for making it such a long reply
i hope this helps!!!
all the best!

Revise important quotes and make sure you can make quick and efficient comparisons of characters and quotes and poems. To be honest I'm trying to help my hand withstand write as much as I can in 2 hours my hand can't physically handle it.
