Just explain to me for English Literature, what do I need to do?
How many quotations should I have?
How many character should I know?
Where can I find the author's reasons for writing it or poets?
How do I ensure a level 4/5?
What is a good structure to use?

To get a pass (4/5) I would say you would need to know at least 4-5 quotes for each main character and maybe one or two for minor characters (e.g macduff, banquo). Revise the main points for each character and theme. For reasoning, you could either use revision guides, youtube (mr bruff?) or your own ideas and knowledge. You need to comment on why the author/poet has used or done a particular thing and be able to analyse quotes. A good structure to use is PQTE. point, quote, technique (if one is used e.g. smilie) and then explain and analyse the quote or point. Hope this helps

Ok same. paper 1 which is Tuesday is the extract questions, personally I revise the themes because the question is usually theme based and even if it isn’t it’ll be about a character which you can link easily to a theme and say like “this character epitomises this theme because x y x ...” so I would make sure that you’re familiar with major themes - if you find characters easier to revise though basically just do the opposite of what Ive said ^. Paper 2 on Friday the novel has a choice of question so again pick either characters or themes to revise - that’s what I’d do.

Ideally you want a quote for every point you make - book or poem alike. So depending on how many points you reckon ur gna make decide on some quotes that you can use and learn em.

In terms of author and poets reasons etc do some background reading and find context because there is marks for that. CGP is quite good for that. And to get a high level maintain a good structure throughout with a clear line or argument and well developed points. Anything else? Xx

Well Ozymandias and bayonet charge have already come up so it’s very likely that those won’t be the one they give you. Also a lot of people find Tissue hard so maybe don’t do that one. As for which 6 go for ones you understand well because then you can write well about them, and generally I find London can be linked to pretty much every other poem so definitely have that on your list, otherwise have a range of war ones, nature, memory etc
