    I'm doing english lit at a level and right now I'm getting good grades but I want to improve my structure. Even if you're the old spec any answers is helpful


    (Original post by damifawehinmi98)
    I'm having troubles structuring my English lit essays for both the novels and the poetry. I have the information I need for the question but my teachers say my structure is bad. And I'm getting C's or low B's. I got a B at first in GCSE english but got it remarked and got an A. I don't know if I'm just feeling demotivated for this subject and not bothering to try(as I wish I picked gov and pol instead, and I keep beating myself up for it) or if I'm actually bad at it.

    Can someone help me with a structure so I can see if I'm good or bad. Thank you.
    Did they tell you that your structure is bad without telling you what was bad about it or suggesting a way for you to improve?
