English 5th Year Weekly Grinds

What will be covered in these 5th Year English Grinds?

These English grinds focus on building the techniques that the examiner expects you to be able to both use and analyse. You will be confident that you have our formula with which to navigate the probable exam questions.

These grinds focus on firstly building an awareness of what the examiner wants and then providing the confidence to be able to supply it. As our teachers have said over the years: It is a myth that English can’t be trained for. The following topics will be covered in detail:

  • Essay Writing
  • Questions A & B
  • The Single Text
  • Selection of poems from all 8 poets
  • The Unseen Poem
  • A wide selection of Comparative Texts
