Break down the question, find what the question is asking you.

- Are there any points of reference you must make to a text? (ie, explore ____ in ONE text studied in class),

- Understand the verb and what it’s asking of you (ie, ASSESS -> make a judgement, EXPLAIN -> cause and effect).,

- What are the key words in the question?

Also writing a plan before you start will always be helpful. Even if you don’t finish, writing a plan will also help your marker understand the points you were planning to discuss.

Past papers are good for helping build those skills to answer questions. Once you understand a text and it’s content, practicing past papers can help you morph an essay to fit any question

I personally find that you do not need to understand everything in a text. Just understand the gist of it. I feel taking note of the technique and its effect where possible will help even more greatly!!
I agree one hundred percent. By understanding the text I meant what you said, the general gist, themes, motifs, techniques, etc. Sorry about not making the clear in my previous comment
