I've read all of my set texts a couple of times and have made notes on criticisms/contexts.
I'm doing distance learning and don't have anyone to mark essays I write so I'm wondering if there's any kind of online resources that allows me to revise essay technique/structure better?

What exam board are you? If you’re OCR there’s some example essays in their website which are really helpful to work through. Plus if it is OCR I can offer some help too - I got an A* in my end of y12 Literature mock

Oh that’s a shame! Some general resources which are good across english lit a-level (regardless of exam board) are:

“Mr Bruff’s Guide to A-Level English Literature” (An amazing guide which acts as a general overview)

* I’ve also found the York Notes revision guides really good for the essay questions which assess context, as there’s lots of good specific info in there!
