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)?
You have to distribute your time more wisely. If you're comfortable with at least one other text that you're studying, switch to Twelfth Night now.

I have no resources that can help you. I'm sorry. If I did, I would try and give them.

I did Romeo and Juliet. You're better off preparing for both, just in case.

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 questions (either a theme or, on the rare occasion, a character, 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!
Hey have you got any example to show of part a or b question. In my mocks I didn't get the grades I wanted so do you have an example of you answering these questions. I would really appreciate it.
Thank you sooo much for the advice above.

One quote per point is good enough for part b and Section B. You must quote as much as you have to when you support your po9ints in part a because the text is in front of you.

The examiner is impressed by an understanding of the text, along with a perceptive perspective on it. You should also be able to have a strong focus on the question, with all of your points (and context, if there is any) being pertinent.

In Section A, part b. You should definitely discuss the effects of language, form and structure in Section A, part a.

You should have been taught this. There is no one way to approach the questions. A very simple yet effective structure is the one outlined in the post for Section B in paper one, with Section A for both papers featuring three paragraphs, with one paragraph per point (for part a, each paragraph should discuss some element of AO2, usually one for language, one for structure and one for both with the form weaved in), and finally Section B on the second paper featuring three paragraphs (one for form, language and structure each) that compares the two poems. Here are exemplar answers from last year that I posted:

Hi - I am aiming for an 8 or 9 and I started revision months ago planning out mindmaps for each character and theme with quotes and their analysis. However I now have 5/6 days until the exam and I have only just finished! Therefore, I now only have those days to learn the quotes and analysis and dont have time to do any essays etc. I am studying Romeo and Juliet, A Christmas Carol and An Inspector Calls in addition to the Conflict Poetry. To top this all off my english teacher has been suspended. What can I do to learn the quotes and analysis? This is my only exam this year as we are entered for early entry in Year 10, so I am still in school everyday.

You should have been taught a structure. I mention a possible structure in another one of my comments on the thread, with exemplars that could be used as examples dammit!
