anyone know how to revise for english literature (a level) i have notes and everything i just don’t know how to utilise them and get them into my head like how do u genuinely do that… theres so much content and i’m scared because the question could be on any theme and then i have to go through the book to find a quote which is time consuming. i just feel like english literature is such a difficult and different subject to revise for

Create a sheet or resource with all of the covered themes. And then for each theme find quotes and note them down. Have 2 copies of each novel. Make quizlets for quotes and the character than said them (for each theme) or alternatively make flash cards. Also ask your teacher how to revise because there are so many other ways, this is just how I remember revising for a level English lit x

I found it useful to make essay plans for all the main themes in bullet point form, collecting quotes for each one and just reading over them to remember the info. Themes generally overlap so gives you good preparation for any questions.

Depends on the text, like if you're reading a whole poetry anthology there might be many widely varied themes, but if you're reading one play there's likely to be fewer more interconnected themes.

Don’t bother doing that. Write essays and send them to your teacher to mark. Look at the feedback, write another essay (not the same one) on a different question and resend to your teacher. Repeat.

Oh, that’s annoying. Perhaps, send it to him anyway.

Yes, that should work.

What text do you study?

A streetcar named desire, othello for drama. Never let me go and Frankenstein for prose and Christina Rossetti and poems of the decade for poetry

Ah, okay! Definitely focus on the texts you are less confident on.

Good luck
