Hi everyone, now that I've gotten my grade and I no longer take English I thought giving advice to people would be a good way to not waste the grade. I did Macbeth, Jekyll and Hyde and A Taste of Honey. Please feel free to ask any questions (no questions are stupid!)

Thank you so much! Macbeth is honestly such a good text to study because there is so much to talk about (technique wise.) I would suggest to read the whole text without making any annotations. Then try and understand the plot because that is vital when talking about character/setting/plot changes in your essay. Yes knowing many techniques is 'impressive' but using simple techniques but having a perceptive interpretation is so much better! Also, just read in your free time other books. I can honestly say revising English wasn't at the top of my priority list as I didn't really enjoy it or care about it but because I used to read a lot in my spare time my vocab really improved which I used in my essay's. This helps make your answers so much more clear and impressive as essentially you're able to explain things easily. I hope this helps! any other questions? about gcse english or just gcses?

I'm actually finding it really interesting so far! I switched from Psychology to History at the start of the year but it was the best decision I made as I'm loving it. Although, I'm doing communism in China for one topic and communism in Russia for another so I get quite mixed up sometimes! what about you?

Any tips for revising Jekyll and Hyde. I find it really confusing and don’t get what’s going on. And I don’t even know the characters well.

I honestly can't remember!! once I left those exams I LEFT them haha! I think the Macbeth one was on violence but I honestly think that's wrong. The Jekyll and Hyde one I have no idea at all. But my advice would be (if you are doing this if not then ignore but) don't try and find the questions that are coming up on your mock because then you won't have practice for the real one when you won't know the question till you open the exam paper!

My whole class struggled with understanding the plot/the point of the novella so trust me you're not the only one! I would say try and summarise each chapter in your own words or ask your teacher to make them for you as it can help clarify confusing parts. Remember the way it is written is meant to be difficult so don't feel bad if you get confused. Try and make character summaries too as you can start to make links between them and the plot. Jekyll and Hyde takes time but once you understand it, it is a great feeling! you will start to make interpretations you didn't realise at the start of the year. Just don't give up on the text as it will become clearer! Any other q's?

Hi! Thank you so much! I did Power and Conflict, honestly I only learnt a few poems because if you learn poems that can be used in many themes then you don't need to know all. Also, is is better to know a few in depth rather than all but vaguely. Perhaps learn 3 (good) quotes from each poem, that way you have something to say about every poem!
