I'm in year 13 doing OCR English Literature.

My school's English department is understaffed and so the teaching quality isn't great. I have 1 teacher for English lit and she's not great. I feel bad saying all this because she's nice but every student she's had has made the same complaints about her. Essays aren't marked, lessons aren't organised, tasks aren't completed. I feel overwhelmed thinking about English lit because it's such a mess.

How do I go about revising for it? Exams are approaching and I don't know what to do.
Without revising I can get a D but I obviously don't want that, so what are your tips and revision methods?

In her defence she'd be a much better teacher if she didn't have so many classes.

P.S here are the texts I'm studying:
Drama and Prose: Hamlet, Duchess of Malfi and Coleridge poetry.
Unseen and Comparison: (dystopian), 1984 and Handmaid's Tale.

Thanks

Ok so definitely hire a private tutor and research heavily around all of your texts, especially for contexts and key quotes. Good rule of thumb is to read the texts 2/3 times each over A levels. Exemplar essay structures can also be found online
