How Can I Effectively Revise English? - April 15th 2011, 02:39 PM

I've come to the conclusion that revising for English is by far the hardest AS Level I have to revise for - as there are no dead and straight facts.... I obviously can't learn the WHOLE English Dictionary off by heart and know the word classes of EVERY SINGLE WORD.

So, How can I effectively revise?

I have 2 novels that I need to study and know inside out and back to front.
I also have an anthology of 15 poems to learn....

Any ideas? For all my other subjects I've been writing Question & Answer flash cards - But I cant work out how to make this idea work for English...


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.

I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

you could do flash-cards on the themes of the poems, the techniques, etc, and character, theme, setting (for each chapter?) flash-cards for the noels maybe? It's what my english teacher's had my class doing for GCSE ^^

There's always light at the end of a tunnel, even if you have to pass a few bends to see it.

Practice practice practice. I really find it's the only way to revise for English. Write out answers again and again, use flashcards for new words. I have 30 poems to learn and all I can do is just go over and over them until I'll never forget them.

You could print out some old past papers, it's what I always do for my subjects.

Like, for Psychology, I have a whole paper of essay questions and we don't know what's going to come up so I've just been doing every single essay question available to me.

Good luck
