OCR GCSE English Literature Revision

The OCR English Literature GCSE consists of two written papers that are equally weighted. Each has a time-limit of two hours. Paper 1 assesses students' knowledge of a modern prose or drama text and of a 19th century novel. Paper 2 tests students ability to compare poems from one of the clusters in the OCR Anthology (either Love & Relationships, Conflict, or Youth & Age) and also to analyse a Shakespearean play. Both exams are closed book which means students are not allowed copies of the set text to refer to and will need to learn quotations from each beforehand.

EdPlace’s GCSE exam-style questions and practice papers help your child hone their exam-technique and prepare them for anything the exam may throw at them.
