At some point next week (week commencing 21st November 2016), you will be sitting the Romeo and Juliet Assessment. It’s going to be an exemplar question, formatted and timed just the way it will be in next year’s exam. You need to do the best that you can and in order to help, here are some resources to focus your revision. Think about the WWW/EBI comments your teachers have written on marked work, and use whichever resource(s) help you to improve the EBI.
Remember that you do need to use quotations in the assessment, but aim for short, specific phrases, rather than long sentences. It’s what you write about that will get you the high marks.
