REVISION GUIDES

Year 11 are taking the OCR GCSE English Literature and GCSE English Language examinations this summer. Many pupils and parents have asked for advice concerning purchasing revision guides.  Unfortunately most revision guides for English focus on the more widely used exam boards.

With this in mind we have produced three helpful guides for you to download and use to support your revision over the coming weeks.  The Writing guide is aimed at all pupils regardless of whether you are taking higher or foundation tier and contains past questions as well as guidance on planning, paragraphing, using techniques and developing a variety of sentence structures.  The reading guides are targeted at specific tiers of entry because the number of the questions is different. You can download the Higher Reading Guide or the Foundation Reading Guide here.

The Higher guide focuses across the three large tariff questions and supports you with model answers and a past paper.  The Foundation guide will focus on how to pick up the easy marks on the low tariff questions and on how to maximise the marks available on questions 1d, 2a and 2b. If you have difficulty downloading these documents please speak to your English teacher as soon as you can. Happy Revising!
