    You still have, like, 6 days though. It's not as if you're going to fail if you put some work in during the next few days.

    Nah more like newspaper articles on specific topics i.e. the environment, although part of the exam paper (multiple choice questions) does have short made up quotes, for which you have to state things like what is being assumed, whether the conclusion is sufficiently valid … Im teaching myself so its not too hard a subject, something worth taking to boost your application.

    I have one next two weeks. I can't believe time is passing so quickly. In addition, since time passes quickly, I feel that I don't have enough time to revise.

    One of my friends swears by making spider diagrams showing the key events, quotes, etc. for either each scene/chapter, or for the characters/themes, etc. That way you really think about what you're reading, as well as just reading it. I think visual stuff like diagrams can help, anyway, and maybe just the process of writing it out will get it all into your head.

    Other than that, reading loads and practising writing essays are probably the best things you can be doing right now.

    What books/plays are you doing?

    I'm only on AS English Lit myself, so I don't know what help I can be, but those are my ideas - along with using York Notes, Cambridge Study Guides (a god-send for Antony and Cleopatra!) and Spark Notes - they come in handy when you have teachers as useless as mine are - but they have limited use, especially as loads of people use them; any ideas used in your essays from them are hardly original. I also hear that a lot of teachers really don't like them, but I don't know - they give you a general impression of the meaning that you can build on with your own opinion.
