Which anthology? I can send some of my own analysis but much of it was inspired by the analysis that you can find on genius.com ! Got a 9 and I really think the genius poem annotations helped in getting that

Their analysis is great, especially Mr Salles and Stacey Reay is equally great for grade 9 analysis

Doesn't the examiner want to hear your reaction, interpretation and analysis of it, not someone whose regurgitated opinions they've already read a million times before?

Exactly, that’s what distinguishes ‘critical’ from ‘thoughtful’. The aim of the videos is to gear students in the right direction to think of original ideas, in year 11 those videos were good and additionally helped me to think more perceptively about the texts and how I responded to them. Which is why I recommend these videos as they’re great starting points for students becoming confident in looking at exemplar analysis and voicing their own equally insightful and personal readings

Thank goodness! I was beginning to think that I was the only one who thought this.

Yes I totally agree. What I like to do though is copy some of their analysis and then extend on it adding the alternative interpretation to be mine. English I really struggle with but my teachers think that I will get 9s

Well, I got above 95% marks in English literature, and I wasn't even considered that good for quite a while. So, don't get too concerned about it.

I don't think that revision method is a recipe for success though.
