Unseen Extracts for Practice

Being able to analyse unseen extracts is an amazing skill to have. It will help you to get used to the format of the GCSE English language exams. Plus, no matter what level you’re at, you will need to analyse in literature class. The more practice you have, the easier it will be to find interesting things to say.

That is why I am going to be adding plenty of unseen extracts for you to check out below. You can read them as many times as you like. Then, you can practice writing essays for them!

Some of these extracts have been written by me personally. For the others, I have compiled them from public domain stories. Either way, I have chosen them so that you have plenty to say about the language and/or structure. So, please feel free to get stuck in and make the most out of it.

For Study Buddy members and above, I will also include analysis in the study guides membership section. Check them out once you have done your own analysis to see if you have missed anything out!

Unseen Extracts: Table of Contents

For the public domain stories, you may use them as you see fit.

However, the copyright for my original stories is a little bit different. They are covered by Shani’s Tutoring copyright.

That means that you can print and quote the extract for personal use only.

However, you cannot redistribute my work in any way without my permission. Any references to it in blog posts, PowerPoint presentations or any other medium must include a credit to me and a link back to this website. You do not need to ask permission to include a link to my work.

If you would like to analyse any of my unseen extracts in a class or tutoring session for the purposes of education, please send students to this website to read it. I am open to discussions about using the poem in its entirety for school presentations, but please note that you must have my permission in writing to do so. You can contact me at hello@shanistutoring.com to discuss this with me.
