Read the books you are studying and find online material to help. Find questions to answer (so that you can test yourself) and, if you can, find some past papers from your exam board :)

What i do is i look through the book and note down several quotes, and also try and link them to themes that could be asked in the exam? like "how is power show throughout the book?" kinda thing, then i just make revision cards, and highlight the main points and read it over and over, I hope this helps:)

When re reading the book, make notes of key themes, things about the characters etc. and find quotes for all these things. Also, try doing past papers and making sure you include quotes :) Hope this helps you :)

Reread the novels and texts you're studying.

Ask your teacher for helpful resources. And go on the exam board your school are doing so you can practice at home.

Try to create revision cards that explain the context and history as well key quotes as this will help when attempting to remember things in the exams

Hope this helps

read the books a few times so you know where to look in exams for quotes, make mind maps or notes on the main characters for the books and any key themes in the books.

for poetry, read each poem and annotate them on things like language, structure, metaphors, punctuation and what all these things could suggest.

finally, practice exam technique, do lots of past questions so you understand the type of question asked and how to answer them. If you can, ask your teacher to mark these past questions and comment on them so you can feel confident about things you did well and improve things you didn't do so well on.

If you're doing the AQA course heres a link to some past papers:

hope this helps you :)
