What do teachers say about this resource? (8469)

This is a really supportive resource that knows the spec well and provides broken-down approaches to the questions – particularly the commentary element. It is also strong on the language as well as the literature terms, which can be difficult to obtain... The focus is very much on the AQA exam, and there is impressive and consistent focus on the exam questions... This resource would certainly help A Level students, particularly because the approach is often broken down to make it more accessible.
