I honestly don't know what to do with English anymore. I detest it to a point where even revising it makes me feel sick and tired but I need to do well in it.

In a few weeks I have my Macbeth mock but I haven't started any English revision whatsoever. Do you guys think I should start doing An Inspector Calls,A Christmas Carol(I struggle with this) or Poetry(I struggle so much with this)? Or should I do Macbeth revision?

Since for English I've never actually revised for it (even for my mocks) what should I actually do? How should I start off my revision?

I'm going to make a revision timetable but should I do each of the books that I'm studying in English on each day so I don't avoid them?

I did pretty crap on my mocks and I've never gotten higher than a 5 but I would like a 7 or an 8(extremely ambitious).

Any advice please? Also sorry that this was long (>_< )

I agree English is hard but just keep reminding yourself of the sacrifices you/your family have made and all the hard work. I think mind maps with lots of colour help and learning techniques on a poster with lots of colour and a few drawings?

As someone who hated English I can relate, it's difficult to motivate yourself to study a subject you don't enjoy, so I tried to do only stuff I knew would help my grade. I basically would just take common/ relatively vague essay titles for each text that I could write a lot about, write an essay on it, get my teacher to mark it and improve it until it scored top marks, and I'd then remember the points I used. In my actual exam I was able to mix and match paragraphs from all the different essays I'd written for each text to answer the questions. Also just research a few contextual bits and pieces to throw in for an extra mark or two

You should try Seneca Learning. It has An Inspector Calls, A Christmas Carol and Macbeth on it. It's a really helpful interactive website that's really useful especially if you're short on time. I haven't personally used it for English yet but I've used it for all sciences and I love it. Also, maybe you could watch some video analysis on those books? There's quite a few good ones on Youtube
