GCSE English Language helpWatch
Another thing that helped me a lot was having a revision timetable and I switched it up every 2/3 weeks so I didn't get bored of it, I also didn't study in one spot, I moved around a lot. Study in the library, stay over after school or even arrive early to school to study, work in your dining room, at your desk even your living room but avoid working in your bed. Little things like this go a long way and keeps you going
How did you revise ?I am getting 6s/5s in lit and lang.I have no clue on how to improve on it
To land a higher grade in english lang, do past papers religiously and when you've finished have a look at your answer and annotate it, be harsh on yourself, highlight what you've included and make notes on what you haven't included etc. Have different coloured highlighters for quotations, analysis, linking to the question, subject terminology etc. (the more colourful your answer the better) When you've done that look at an example response and annotate that response too, that was something that really helped me a lot.
When it comes to english literature, mindmaps will be your best friend, make a mindmap on every theme and character in the book/ play, and I mean every single theme and character, use colours to colour coordinate, i used a red pen for quotes to make them stand out more. Pick a handful a key quotes, as in must know quotes and make a few revision cards on those ones, so have the quote on one side, and the analysis on the back (also make sure you know which theme/ character it links to).
Again do past papers, I wrote at least 6 essays every week and sent them to my teacher to mark, you don't have to do as many as I did, try and do them without your notes but also time yourself as time keeping is so important in any english exam.
Hope that helps
