Yeah I’m pretty stressed for English lit too, could you tell us how you structured your answers and also how many paragraphs did you write for most questions (30 mark questions). I aiming to do 8, 1 introduction, 6 actually analysis paragraphs and then 1 conclusion.

If you want to pm me I can write you up a quick example of some top end analysis and explain how I went about forming the paragraph? Being able to analyse is most important I think

How did you revise English Lit?
Exam is on Tuesday and I have only revised A Christmas Carol not Macbeth.
When did you start English Lit revision?

Thanks

Some easy dos and do nots I can give are:
DO - Always talk go back to why the writer chose to do something. Remember write about Macbeth all you like but you need to say why Shakespeare wrote him in that way and what message he wanted to spread to the audience
DONT - Waffle on without actually making a point. A peel structure works better than you think if you can't structure independently I always go for point, quote, writers methods/analysis together and context in with the analysis throughout to get AO3 easy
DO - talk about context often, don't just mention it once or twice desperately instead talk about context as either it's own paragraph (supported with quotes and methods) or suggest often how context of the time period may have influenced writers methods in doing certain things
DO - plan your answer, it only needs to be a short table with a few key words to remind you if you want just make sure you have some sort of plan or you get lost
DO - analysis quotes critically. For example "give me the daggers" you'll want to talk about how Shakespeare shocks the audience with a woman using imperatives in "give" to control the man and you can make seperate points about other parts such as "daggers" being seen as a small, concealed weapon not typical of brave, strong kings perfectly depicting Macbeth as the "false" king he is. There's always more than one thing to say about a quote and sometimes you do not have many quotes so make them count

hi well done on a 9 that is incredible!! i do never let me go as well! what do you think the main themes i need to learn are and what are the most important moments in the book that would support these themes?
Also how do you link to context and his messages because i always struggle to come up with that :/
Also how does his writing affect the reader? does it scare them that this is what our future could be like?
and finally what are the writers methods? is it like he uses the tape to show Madame that Kathy will never be able to have a child n that kind of stuff?
would appreciate the help as i got a 6 on my last exam 😬

For 30 mark questions I usually did 4 analysis 1 conclusion and make the 4 paragraphs beefier so you get more critical analysis and less boring analysis. Quality over quantity! And if you are struggling with structure go for a modified peel structure like this :
Point
Explain and analyse point using a quote and discuss writers methods
Explain with an example how writers methods were influenced by context
Link to next paragraph

What is a better grade 8/9 sentence for "The writer presents" and

When you wonder how the writing effects the reader think how it makes YOU feel, how do you feel that most clones are raised like battery hens just for their organs, how do you feel that they are not seen as human or worth loving etc. Then once you have figured that out think why did Ishiguro do this? A certain emotive response from a reader may have been his intention, he could have been making a statement about growing scientific advancements in society and used humans as the example to exaggerate his point it's anything you make it out to be as long as you can back it up. To link to context you want to put it together with writers methods, how was the writer influenced by the context to write the things you will analyse? For example there is the scientific advancements causing unease after the first animals were being cloned as context
