Some literary devices that constitute 'language' (AO2):
Spoiler:
Show

  • Word classes (i.e. nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs - this is as much as you have to know, but any more knowledge of word classes or grammar itself doesn't go astray, just remember that almost all of the credit is gained from the analysis, not just the sophistication of the subject terminology)
  • Similes
  • Metaphors
  • Juxtaposition
  • Litotes/meiosis
  • Anaphora
  • Epistrophe
  • Polysyndeton or asyndeton
  • Imagery


Some points that constitute 'form' AO2):
Spoiler:
Show

  • Characters
  • Themes
  • Type of play (e.g. tragedy)
  • Aspect of drama (e.g. soliloquy)
  • Setting


Some structural features that constitute 'structure' (AO2):
Spoiler:
Show

  • Punctuation (e.g. exclamation mark, commas, dashes)
  • Repetitions used throughout
  • Shifts in focus
  • External actions of characters
  • Internal thoughts of characters
  • Shifts in pace







Guide through the paper
Section A (Shakespeare), part a (20 marks):
  • Analyse how the language, form and structure used by Shakespeare to create meanings and dramatic effects relate to the question (AO2).
  • Always quote as evidence to support your opinion. You have no excuse as the extract is in front of you.
  • Only focus on the extract given.
  • Context is NOT REQUIRED.

Section A (Shakespeare), part b (20 marks):
  • Discuss your critical opinion (AO1) on how different events or characters in the play are related to the topic of the question (a theme which will relate to the extract in part a).
  • Try to link most of your points to CONTEXT (AO3) as that is assessed in this question.
  • Try to use pertinent quotes from the rest of the play as this is a question that asks for a global analysis.
  • Try to include a pithy conclusion.
  • DO NOT discuss language, form or structure at all.
  • Try to avoid using quotes from the extract at all costs.

Section B (post-1914 literature; 40 marks):
  • Play to your strengths. You have a choice from two questions.
  • Use three main points (or however many you think is required) that are events from the text to support your critical opinion that relates to the question (AO1). Use pertinent quotes to support all of your points.
  • Use context to support all of your points (AO3). It is worth a lot of credit here.
  • Try to conclude with a pithy conclusion that is infused with some modern context that is relevant to the play and the question. You'll want to leaven an impression on the examiner.
  • Pay attention to SPaG! Eight of the marks (twenty per cent) in this question are for the accuracy of your spelling, grammar and punctuation. They are easy to gain, but also so easy to lose.
  • DO NOT discuss language, form or structure at all.

(If any of you want help, I scored 78/80 on this paper last year. I am free to help, so just DM me!)

May the odds be ever in your favour for all taking the exam!

So i'm doing twelfth night for English lit but am in a dilemma. I spent so much time getting my head around the books of the other components that I got no time for twelfth night (I'm doing a mock at some point today). Do you have anything that can get me that A grade (or B grade)?
