if you want the honest version? I'm not coz Psych is closer and is one of my weakest subjects so i'm more focused on it. I think you just gotta figure out ur weaknesses (in your case, more timed essays and consolidation of ideas, im guessing) and work on them - im just working on the philosophy thats its not too late til the exams over

personally, i started writing 3 paragraphs instead of 4 (excluding intro and conclusion) but making them longer, focusing more on being thorough with analysis and it's boosted my grade for eng lit a lot. my essays went from 14/24 marks to 22/24

hope that helps
how did you practice that?
meaning how did you practice writing and thinking under 50 mins in response to a question?


For me, I can write a good essay if given 2 days but under 50 mins? very mediocre at best

sounds basic but mainly practise essays. i go to past papers and time myself doing an essay and ask my teacher to mark it. naturally, you'll kinda get better at thinking quicker under timed conditions.

how are you feeling for june 7th?

you dont need to learn a lot of quotes, just a few and how to apply them to the main themes.
just a little exam practise and you'll be fine, good luck!

My teachers have suggested anything on women for either b or c because they haven't done many on women yet however, I hope they will be more lenient in the actual paper.

yes, i'm hoping for treatment of women- closest they've ever got is emilia in 2018, which is not a nice question imo.
maybe also something on deception or deceit for either

I think it went okay! the extract was nice and so were the Othello questions, the combined questions were a bit more tricky though I thought
