I'm not a 'gini' or however u spell that word, but the sixth formers I know and see (everday that is) usually read and reread the text lots and lot and lot and.............(u get my point...)

Yeah, so another thing, u are very lucky coz literature 'nd english 4 that matter usually don't have a specific correct or incorrect answer; it's more about the way u giv ur point and back it up. If u can, u culd learn some quotes 4 ur exam and use it to back up your points.Dat way, u might get higher marks.

Always read under the lines..(look 4 a differnt view) out of another window.Sorry 2 soun lyk a bossy teacher but seriously, reading under the lines is something u shuld nver miss....guess u knew dat already..right?

Mmmmm....what else...(U know sometymes u hav something in da back of ur head and then it escapes?...Dats wats happening 2 me now.  SOZ)

Really sorry if i hav'nt answerd ur question but I kinda hate 2 see unanswered qns on dis site so I giv wat I hav and I'll keep a look out 4 any other tips then I'll get back 2 u...

Hope I've helped.

allways start your sentances in an intresting way so with a similie,metaphor and all of that instead of I also use long and short sentances that will boost your grade
