Hello, does anybody have any tips when answering English Literature paper 1/2? I use the same ''PEE'' (or ''PEA'') answering structure, but when I used this in my mock exams, I ended up getting a grade 4.

So, I was wondering if anybody had any tips on how to answer the question?

The books/poems I study are, Romeo & Juliet, A Christmas Carol, An Inspector Calls and all the Power and Conflict AQA poems.

Thank you!

I do, but I will give my point, write the quote and just say ''this suggests that...'' and that's about it.

Firstly i think you meant Literature lool erm but what you should do when answering the question is look at the question for starters and quickly jot down some ideas. When youre writing your answer, you can continuously refer back to them. So for example, say you get a question on how The Cratchits represent the poorer society, you could quickly jot down 'Bob Cratchit works in his dismal little cell,' 'they all live in the same four-roomed house' etc. After noting down these points, just develop the analysis in your answer.

Pee paragraphs are good. Peter's paragraphs are better.

-Point (Introduce paragraph)
-Evidence (Quote or paraphrase)
-Technique (Subject specific vocabulary)
-Explain (In depth analysis)
-Reader (Effect on the reader)
-Single-word (Analyse a single word from the evidence)

Always try and refer to different interpretations. put simply, I think in my head something, then maybe another thought comes along and I mask it as the audience "may also feel" or "some may interpret". If you write a quote with explaining the language devices if you can (or even "the verb...") it will get you higher marks than stating and explaining

In all honesty you can access the grade 4 and 5 grades without knowing much. It's when you head into the high 5 onwards you are expected to have a higher understanding and more knowledge.

Well, My teacher taught us to use PETAL. This structure will sure help you to aim higher than a grade 5! You can use this for the English language too.

I strongly recommend planning your answer first. That way you know you're answering the question and will minimize any mistakes in your essay

P- Point
E- Evidence
T-Terminology/technique
A- Analysis (make sure this part is really detailed, and try to add some context here!)
L- Link back to the Q

Best of luck on your literature exams!!
