Hello. Our first exam for English Lit is on Wednesday and I'm not nearly as prepared as I should be. I genuinely feel like I am going to fail. How many paragraphs should I write in Section A and also in Section B. Can someone break it down for me? Also how can I incorporate context into my essays as that's always something I lack. Also, WJEC Eduqas is my exam board.

I did AQA english lit GCSE last year and one of the things that my A level English teacher has said to us is not to think of every question in terms of how many paragraphs you should write - it's more making sure that you've actually ANSWERED the question with those paragraphs. For every paragraph, make sure what you've put in is relevant to the question and try not to get sidetracked. I'm not sure how long you'll have for each section with WJEC Eduqas but if you're after an approximation, a paragraph every 8 ish minutes is a good number to aim for.
For context, try not to force it in. Make sure it's actually relevant and supports your argument. If it does, it should incorporate into your essay quite naturally. If not, at GCSE as long as it supports your argument and is relevant to the question, it doesn't need to be really well integrated, as long as you've got some in there.
Good luck!!

maybe this is quite late, but i’m sure you’ll be able to use this for the rest of the english papers - READ THE EXAMINERS REPORT!!! They literally tell you everything they are looking for in an answer and how the students should answer the question (in terms of structure etc). since you’ve done the english lit exam, how did it go? good luck with the rest of your exams!
