Year 11 seems impossible at the time, but trust me, you can get through it, and the summer afterwards is the best ever General tips I would have is to set up a REALISTIC revision timetable, and to revise seriously for all the mocks you have as if they were the real exams, that way by the time it gets to May/June, its not as scary. Another important thing is to get parents or relatives or whoever to test you on your notes, that really helped me.

Specific advice for English - I'd say start early and make plot summaries, quotes cards, and context notes for each text you study, and then recombine these into mindmaps for each theme in the text if that makes sense? So for example, I studied an Inspector Calls, and I made a summary for each act, quote cards for each character, context notes for the whole period, and then when I made a mindmap on a theme such a love and relationships, I combined all my other notes onto this which helped condense it down and make it easier to remember.

If you want anymore tips or subject advice, feel free to pm me, happy to help

In year 11 at the minuet so who knows how well its going but I really enjoy using Seneca learning for English- its completely free, it asks questions timelines and gives you facts. It also helps with the essays.
