    Hey. FYI this is my first post so im unsure if what im doing here is what im supposed to do, so bare with me on this one.

    Anyway I have just started Year 11 and I have had my 2nd GCSE German writing grade back. It was a D. I am so disappointed even though the teacher marked my draft as an A and I have revised it throughly. Idek how I got a D. Even on my 1st German writing I had got a E/D so I am really fustrated. I believe I have got 1 more writing and if not 2 more just in case I needed them as better results over my initial writing. So how can I get to a B target on my writing over the few months coming to the next writing exam. I have no clue what I could do so can anyone help me out please. How and what should I revise? What can get to help me? I seriously want to put the effot in to get better grades. Thanks in advance. ^^

    Honestly, it's not that hard. If you started learning age 5 you could've passed the GCSE aged 10. That's how easy a language GCSE is

    Pick up some nice sentence structures that show off your ability, such as using weil/obwohl. Also use all 3 tenses + conditional. Give lots of reasons and opinions: ich finde .... It really boils down to two things: grammar and vocab.
