Students will be sitting two papers  that will last  1 hour and 45 minutes: one hour will be a question on Animal Farm and 45 minutes will be a writing question – a description or story based on an image or opening line. 

To revise, students should revise the plot of the novel and know the key events.  They should also know the key characters and have key quotations to support their discussions.  They will not be allowed a copy of the text in the exam so they must learn 5-10 quotations that they can use in the exam.

If students have revision guides they can work through the questions in the guides to help them.  If students do not have a revision guides, here are some links:
