Where can I find GCSE English past papers?The best place to find past examination papers is on your examination board’s website. Usually, there are lots of easy-to-access papers available, along with mark schemes and reports from examiners. Here are a few links: English GCSE AQA Past Papers English GCSE Pearson Past Papers English GCSE OCR Past Papers English GCSE WJEC Past Papers Your examination board website should have some free access to sample answers from previous examination years. You may find that there is commentary, too, which helps to explain the grades.
How to revise GCSE English?Well, apart from re-visiting these lessons, there are lots of things you can do. You should read widely – for Language, non-fiction texts are good, such as newspaper articles, as well as fiction, such as poetry and short stories. For Literature, you will need to know your set texts well – re-read these, make notes, highlight key sections. You can also look at past papers, examiners’ commentaries, and mark schemes, alongside sample answers. Test yourself on literary terminology, too. English is skills-based so the more practice you get, the better. Learning some useful quotations from key texts will be helpful, particularly if these can be applied to different types of question.
Can I move from GCSE Level 5 to Level 6, or higher?"I suggest you look at mark schemes and see what the differences are between different levels. Looking at sample answers for a range of responses is helpful as well, especially if these include examiner comments which help to justify certain grades.
