How GCSEs are assessed has changed: from summer 2017, students are not allowed to take a copy of the text into the exam. This means that the first hurdle is to have a clear and close understanding of the plot and the structure of the novel. This study guide will help you to do that - and so much more.

Understand the role of key themes, including fear, memory, sex and death. Learn how to write clear, effective essays. This book has been designed to inspire and support students (and their teachers). If you are sitting AQA, WJEC or OCR - there are extra guidelines for you. I am an Oxford University English graduate and personal tutor working in the Cotswolds area. Each week, I help my pupils to maximise their potential so that, when they sit the exam, they can raise their grade. I hope this book will help you to do the same too. Use it through your course, to help as you study in school or at college. Use it again in the final weeks before the exam. As a further service, anyone who buys my book can email me direct if they have any "night before" questions still outstanding. "Never Let Me Go" is a unique and demanding book to study. This Gavin's Guide aims to increase your understanding and enjoyment - plus your exam success.
