Sorry to interrupt your holiday with work but it is under two months now until your English exams start! So it is time to get practising.

I will be putting up questions from past examinations so that you can plan and/or write practise answers. I am happy to mark any work that you do and give you feedback on how to improve.

The PDF attached has questions from one of the English Literature papers – Exploring Modern Texts – where you will be expected to answer questions on ‘Touching the Void’ and ‘Of Mice and Men’. I have included the questions from both the Foundation and the Higher papers. If you haven’t got the texts at home, you can probably find relevant quotations online (remember these are an essential part of your answer).
