for my exam, i know what to say when answering, but i dont know how to respond to the GCSE question in such a way that will get me an A/A*. One way to get there is to use 'embedded quotes'. Any other ideas? :)

The writer shows that....(Point)

This is indicated by the line....(Evidence/Quote)

To emphasise this the writer uses....(Technique) which suggest that...... because.....

This makes the reader /audience learn/feel........

The writer wants the reader/audience to feel.... (Context of text)

Hi there, I don't know whether you have been taught this yet, but rather than using the 'PEE' example, use PEA (Point, Evidence, Analyse). It's better to analyse your point rather than explaining your point as it shows the examiner that you have analysed the texts that you have been reading. During AS English Lit I have learn't that you must use effective quotes while embedding them rather than one's that don't back up your point well enough, so just be selective of what quotes you use.

Good luck :)

Integrate your quotes ( which should be the best ones you can find ) into your answer so you do not need to write 'This shows' or something! Explain and show how the quote proves the point and why has the writer chosen to use it? What does the writer want you tho think when you read the sentence? etc.

Hey, Im not so sure what your teacher has previously guided you to do, but what ive been taught is the 'PEAL' structure. This consists of writing your point, evidence, explanation and analysing. Personally, I find this helps me to get high grades in exams! You should try it and see how you feel about it.

Another pieve of advice would be to only choose judicious quotations that you can analyse thoroughly!!

Good luccckk!! <3 Hope this helps anyone reading
