    Mr Bruffs videos are soooo helpful. Also I really recommend the AQA English Language revision guide and workbook (they are blue if that helps). They got me from a U to an A in my last mock
    U to an A! Geez! Well done. Yes I will try and get them then. Thankyou for your help

    My controlled assessments are just about A grade so hopefully it might boost up my final grade
    All my controlled assessment are also A and B grades so even though I got a C on the papers I got a B overall. My last ray of hope are my controlled assessments which I worked my ass of to get high grades on.

    I was looking forward to ranting about how I'm finding the essays difficult at A2 but reading the comments, I think you guys are referring to GCSE... :/

    I'm kinda good at that question. Some tips I can give you are:
    To pick the source which has the most DAFOREST techniques
    To get band 4, talk about more sophisticated language tecniques other than DAFOREST like hyperboles, puns, irony etc.
    To relate techniques to purpose
