I’m currently in year 13, about to attend University in September. In year 11 I achieved an 8 in my GCSE for English, so I was wondering if anyone needed help with tips such as, remembering quotes, revision strategies or anything else! I studied An Inspector Calls, Much Ado About Nothing, A Christmas Carol, and Love & Loss Poetry. Hope this helps!

Learning a word-a-day will be really useful in the leadup towards your exams. Words like vitriolic, scintillate, mellifluous are examples of words I learnt and have incorporated into my creative writing to get Level 9s.

In terms of your transactional writing, learning some mnemonics such as AFOREST will help you. You can write these at the top of your paper, and tick off the features you use as you go.

As for the rest of the Qs, just learn the structure of each question thoroughly (do you need context, analysis, zoom in features/zoom out themes and ideas).

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Ooh thanks learning a word a day is a really good idea! Gonna try doing that for sure, and I need to just keep revising structure and looking a at mark schemes I think

Something new that I've done recently is to make flashcards based on pictures. I can confidently recall loads of quotations from my poetry anthology now.

For each word of a quotation, I draw a picture of connotations of the word. Or sometimes I associate pictures with personal things. For example, when John Smith is mentioned in An Inspector Calls, I represent John Smith with the Doctor Who logo (for all you non-Whovians, it is because that is the Doctor's disguise name).

Hi, I'm doing an Inspector Calls too and I'm wondering if you have any tips for the exam? Did you learn quotations and how many did you learn if you did? If you have a doc or anything on the quotes then I'll be very grateful if you could send them to me
