I'm self-studying and not sure how to revise except for past papers. I'm using revision videos and practice problem for physics, but what for literature? What's the best revision guide? (I'm doing Frankenstein, The War of the Worlds, Hamlet, Waiting for Godot, and Modernist poetry.) Thank you so much in advance!

If you're already familiar with the content of the literature and know how to answer an exam question in general, then you're basically all set! A fun thing to do after is to take a piece of blank paper and write down what you know about the literature (whether it's themes, structure (for poetry), and more) and think about how to extend those ideas (eg. what the do think the writer is trying to say, what are your general thoughts as a teenager reading the piece, etc)

The good thing about this is that, without referring to any revision materials, you can come up with the most original ideas and you'll have the most eyecatching, one-of-a-kind answers of all! Which examiners LOVE after reading thousands and thousands of the same analysis copied from the same revision website that everyone goes to. It's a way to really push your grades up to an A*
