York Notes for A Level: A Doll’s House includes features to help you achieve top grades, including extract analysis of key passages, to add extra in-depth information and also to demonstrate how to approach detailed analysis, a key skill in your exam. Students who can demonstrate this depth of understanding, linking out to contexts and critical interpretations, in their exam responses to A Doll’s House questions are likely to achieve a higher grade than those who comment on the novel in general terms. You might be asked, for example, to explain why Ibsen was obliged to write a different ending for the play in which Nora stays for the sake of the children, or to discuss the different views that characters hold on social responsibility, or to discuss how each act may have ended if the central figure was either Krogstad or Mrs Linde, rather than Nora.
When you buy the online version of A Doll’s House A Level Revision Guide you’ll also benefit from revision podcasts from educational experts who provide extra insights into the text, discussing what makes the text great and picking out key contextual and critical ideas, all helping you to form your own interpretations and write an answer that meets examiners’ expectations of top grade students.
