structure i used point, evidence, analyse, more evidence, analyse, link back to question ALWAYS
Also i integrated context that was RELEVANT to my point
Dont pick random quotes to analyse they need to prove your stance on the text

find quotes in the poem that link to the question your given and highlight them, look at what each poet is trying to discuss, are they agreeing or disagreeing, from that form an argument on where you want to take your essay, using your quotes to prove your point. Make sure your find quotes that contain literary devices (caesura atc) and comment on these

How would you suggest tackling A Christmas Carol (the exam is tomorrow). What are the key themes/what they most likely will ask us about and which characters should we have a deeper understanding if than the likes of Fred (who doesn't say much).

Thanks!

DO NOT STRESS YOU WILL DO AMAZING!! i knew about 30 for each, what helped me was just writing down every single quote i cld remember onto some paper, then reading a list of key quotes, then doing it again until my list got longer
