Grade 8 - 9 Literature GCSE AQA skills Masterclass

This lesson was designed to help top set y11 students move from grade 6-7 to grade 8 - 9.

It covers:

  • Grade boundaries
  • The use of analytical verbs
  • Evaluative language
  • The mark scheme
  • Identifying AOs
  • Upskilling an example paragraph
