Overview

Please use the documents here as revision for your English Language and English Literature GCSEs. Some of the items you'll already have from revision sessions and pie night - others are new and may be useful over the holidays and the last few weeks coming up to the exams. All key messages are here, key quotes and sample questions to help give your studying some focus!

Have a look at the revision timetable. It's really helpful to sort out what to study and when - breaking things down into manageable chunks.

Good luck.
