Revision Secondary English

Do you think you can revise for GCSE English?

Students regularly tell teacher Mark Roberts that they find it hard to revise for their GCSE English exams. His new book, You Can’t Revise for GCSE English! Yes you can, and Mark Roberts shows you how explores why that common belief is wrong – and how all you really need is an organised, step-by-step approach to English revision.

The book equips GCSE English students with essential techniques for revising tricky exam topics, such as unseen poetry and creative writing, and explores effective revision methods including:

  • Making good flashcards
  • Identifying and building up a bank of ‘killer quotes’
  • Using context successfully
  • …and much more!
