Yes which exam board did you do/ are doing. My school is ocr. And do you have to learn a lot of plays/poems ? What are the big differences between a level and gcse?
I did ccea and their was a lot of poems to learn over the 2 years.We did 1 play and 1 novel per year as well.For me the essay structure/what the examiners looked for changed quite a lot from gcse to a level. A level u have to be a bit more independent and analyse the bookurself more which is prep for uni i suppose.hope this helps
