Hi, I am taking my English literature exam in 2020. I really struggle with English and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to get better? thanks!

Hey,

I think planning exam questions is the way to go about it. it helped me so much and at GCSE I achieved a 8 in English lit and Lang. But this obviously varies for each student. but planning the question helped me get quotes in and content and context that were important and part of the AOs.

I now do a A level English lit and for the AS I achieved an A grade. I continue to use the same method.

Hope this helps

thanks so much! Did you make pages with quotes for each character and theme?

Do plenty of past papers for one and secondly be sure you know how to write answers in 'paragraph form' and also how to structure your paragraph in a way that the answer starts with an introduction to the topic in the first para, explains the topic in the second para and in the last para you summarize what needs to be overall in regards to the topic. Some of the exam questions may also ask for your opinion on whatever the topic is, so you need to add your own well opinionated view in the third paragraph of your answer.

Unlike other subjects, I found out I had to implement that technique in many of my answers for the exam which was difficult at first but my tutor helped me and I eventually got used to the format.
