It's good to know that there are other people on the same board. York notes don't really help me, I don't know if that's because I'm not using them properly or something.

Would it be alright if you shared the tips on unseen?

We weren't given any model essays. How are you preparing for Bronte/Hardy and the Unseen?

I'm doing Heaney poetry, Othello, Return of the Native/Wuthering Heights and the Unseen poetry. I haven't really done much revision as of yet, I just tend to find English really difficult to revise for some reason. I'm going to just read through all my notes, plan out answers for possible questions. I need to try and drum a whole bunch of quotes from the two novels into my brain, too.

For the unseen I'm not really sure how to revise for it, I did a timed practice essay in class and got an A, so I'm not worrying too much about the unseen. It just seems to be the lesser of several evils

I am so worried that I think I might fail Othello. How are you preparing for it especially the context (AO5) being double weighted?
