Hi,

Started year 11 this week and am starting to revise for my mocks in Nov.

How did you revise for English literature and English language?

I’m doing edexcel so i need to revise of mice and men, a view from the bridge and macbeth along with the anthology texts. i don’t need to revise poetry because it’s been omitted now bc of covid.

I don’t know where to start with these subjects in regards to revision so just looking for some tips and advice

As far as English language goes, I’d just say practice with as many past papers as you can get your hands on. If you’ve been taught methods for answering questions then sure, go over them and familiarise yourself with the technique, but really past papers/practice questions are the way to go.

For Literature I did a few mind maps or diagrams regarding themes/ideas etc. in my novel and drama text. Of course, it all depends on how you learn best, but I found limiting my notes to a few key statements and examples on a mind map helped me remember them better. I did the same for characters too, with information on their personality and relationships, and a few good quotes to memorise for the exam. Again, past exam questions are good as you get used to formatting your response (do this timed so you know how long you have for planning and actually writing). These are harder to self-mark though so hopefully your teacher will provide lesson time for this.

Sorry if this is a bit ramble and vague, I got A* in language and literature GCSE so message me if you need anything

english lang- exam practice and revision of key terminology.
don't go overboard w your english lit notes, make sure they're condensed and not waffle. i made notes on characters and themes and put my quotes on flashcards. do plenty of exam practice in various conditions ie. timed, untimed, closed book, open book and hand to your teacher for feedback.
