Hey, so I'm redoing English Lit (Edexcel) as a Year 14 student. I'm in the Y13 classes, studying drama and poetry - but not prose.

We studied prose in Y12, which was 2 years ago, and I'm struggling to dive back into it because just reading my old notes doesn't really get it into my head, and making quote banks feels boring and unproductive.

I've started reading the texts (Frankenstein & The Handmaid's Tale) again, but I don't know what else I can do. If anyone knows some effective revision/recap techniques, please let me know!

Have you tried using Quizlet? It makes learning more fun and interactive.

I would have thought that English would be in more than one option block?

Nope, English lit is in one block and English lang in another. Not many people choose lit at our sixth form

Is it worth negotiating one lesson a week of English and miss Sociology that lesson?

Hmm, that's a possibility I will look into, thank you

Either that or see if there are any help sessions going?

I don't teach English but I know Mr Bruff has great GCSE resources - does he have an equivalent for A level.

I've received a reply - it isn't possible to sit in any Y12 lessons as they all clash with Sociology and Y13 English :/
I'll check out Mr Bruff, thanks!
