(This is based on the AQA spec because that's what I did - you'll probably have to check the other exam boards if you're not doing AQA)
Lit Paper 1: Shakespeare and 19th century novel (e.g. mine was Macbeth and Jekyll and Hyde) - need to know quotes, themes, characters and analysis for each

Lit Paper 2: Poems from Poetry Anthology and Modern Text (e.g. mine was the Love and Relationships anthology and The History Boys) - again quotes, themes, characters and analysis to be able to analyse the texts. Also need to be able to analyse unseen poetry.

Lang Paper 1: For Q1-4 It's all unseen so just practice answering the type of question. Q5 is creative writing so again it's just practice.
Lang Paper 2: Again Q1-4 is unseen and Q5 is persuasive writing so it's all just practicing answering past qs.

Hope this helps, and good luck with yr11! --A yr12 student
