Aqa English Language and English Literature Watch
Anyone who has done the new specifaction 9-1 already, it would be great help if you could suggest how you got a grade 8-9 in English Literature and Language.
Any Resources would help or do that you have used in previous 2 years?
I got a 9 in literature and an 8 in language.
How I revised was I kept all of my information on small flash cards and shortened quotes. So ‘solitary as an oyster’ would become “sol as an oyst”. And I’d fit loads of quotes on. I memorised 4 quotes for 4 characters each stave. And in poetry, I sang the poems to the tunes of songs stuck in my head.
People say that just before an exam you shouldn’t revise, I’d ignore that. I revised like crazy up to the last minute I had.
For language I didn’t revise half as much. Just make sure that you know all of the things like metaphor etc and know how to talk about them. For the last section on both papers I revised by looking through a thesaurus.
Hope this helps xx
Thanks though for everyone sugestions till now.
It would be great if you could share your resoures for Literature which has noted for grades 8-9.
