‘I liked the extracts identified in the example papers section as making exam style papers is very time consuming… The mark schemes provided are very useful.’ – Carolyn Harvey, KS4 Coordinator and Independent Reviewer

I really liked the exemplar answers that were worked through with detailed commentaries; these would be helpful for all ability of students… The worked-through exemplars have an excellent task modelling how to embed quotations… Really useful for exam preparation. It’s clearly focused on the assessment criteria and would be useful for both students and teachers familiarising themselves with the requirements of the question… The commentaries stick closely to the exam question examples I’ve seen so far.’ – S Comley, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (8239)
Comprehensive… I liked the way that the resource built up from summary to analysis in a way that would easily transfer to a scheme of work. The links to the AOs are helpful and the revision activities are also beneficial and will save teachers a lot of time with these ready made exemplars.” – M Smyth, Assistant Vice Principal and Independent Reviewer

‘A very useful resource. It has lots of exemplars and ideas which would help students to focus and understand the requirements of the examination during the revision period… I particularly liked the scene-by-scene key themes suggestion – something I would certainly use in my teaching and the break down of timings is a useful visual organiser. The essay planning ideas would also help them to understand how to approach the exam questions.’ – C Harvey, KS4 Co-ordinator and Independent Reviewer

‘A helpful resource that focuses on one of the set texts from the Edexcel GCSE Literature specification. Like the range of question and the use of exemplar resonses. Chapter summary is very useful.’ – L Deighton, Head of English and Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7565)
‘Comprehensive [with] a good range of ideas and activities. [The resource] was well written and constructed, taking the students (and teachers) from the basics of scene summaries, and building up gradually to full examination answers. The annotated exemplars are very valuable and I liked the fact that these were linked to the AOs.’ – M Smyth, English teacher and Independent Reviewer

This is an excellent resource in every way and would save a teacher hours of work especially at the moment when there are so few past papers and little exemplar material available… Best of all is the detailed work on examination responses, the chance to self mark and the focus on the AOs.” – S Griffin, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
