English Literature



10m 0s

This tutorial looks at how you should answer the unseen comparison question within your exam into two core areas. Firstly, how do I structure my answer, including how to deconstruct the question: subject, focus, and command words and close reading tips and skills. Secondly, wow do I make sure I answer the question, including how to begin writing answer: paragraph structure (topic sentence, main body, PEE, concluding point, linking sentences) and how to engage with quotations OPVL (origin, purpose, value, limitation).
