Attached below are some guides to help you revise for the Literature exam – this applies to those who have studied Lord of the Flies.
Here is the file that Mr Hoskin has set his class for home learning although it would be useful for all Year 11 students to use to revise Of Mice and Men for the Literature exam.
You will be sitting another mock exam in English Language in October, before the half term break. This will be the same format as the mock you sat last June. The exam is 2 hours 15 minutes. It has 4 reading questions which will require you to demonstrate the various reading skills based on 3 written sources. Then in the writing section of the paper, you will have 2 questions which will ask you to write to explain/inform/describe (question 5) and write to persuade/argue (question 6).
Advice on how to approach these questions can be found here.
We will be starting this year focussing on finishing off your controlled assessments for the GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature courses as well as preparing you for your next mock English Language exam which is coming up in October, just before half term.
The coursework deadline is Christmas so it is important that you use all your class time effectively along with any additional intervention sessions offered by your class teacher. If you have any concerns about any of your controlled assessments, whether complete or not, speak to your class teacher without delay.
