Free English GCSE Resources!

August 09, 2021 by Joanne Afriyie
Image As an Education Consultant here at Tutorfair I have learnt a lot about what students are looking for help with. When I was studying at GCSE I found the wide range of resources available on the internet incredibly helpful. So I thought I would create a blog post series that will focus on compiling useful free GCSE resources that anyone studying can utilise to further their learning.

Here at Tutorfair our mission is to help every student succeed. The amazing tutors on our platform have created free resources that cover a range of subjects such as Maths, English and Science. The resources also cover different subject levels for example 11+, GCSE and A Levels. These resources and more can all be accessed from the resource centre.
In this post we will focus on free English GCSE resources that range from play analysis, exam question technique and poetry analysis to help aid your learning and most importantly to help you succeed!

An Inspector Calls revision

Maria A has provided a great revision exercise for those studying An Inspector Calls at GCSE. She includes exercises that focus on the acts, themes and character analysis in the play which will help solidify your understanding of the text and help you excel in those all important exams. Here is a link where you can download the revision sheet.

GCSE Language exam question technique

Tutor Nick M has contributed an amazing resource that focuses specifically on exam technique for GCSE English Language. Nick breaks down how to analyse the writer’s perspective by providing an example which helps you to understand what points examiners are looking for, to help you perfect your exam technique! You can find this resource here.

Lord of the Flies analysis

This resource posted by Pushpinder K provides analysis for another popular English GCSE text ‘Lord of the Flies’ by William Golding. This resource which can be found here highlights the importance of the character Jack in the novel.

How do I analyse GCSE poems?!

The next resource is from tutor Michelle F which can be found here. Michelle has provided an excellent resource for those who are stuck on the all important questions “what is the poet saying?” and “how does the poet say it?” This helpful resource can be used for any poem that you are required to analyse.
