    Hey, just got my coursework marked and my teacher said that i got a high B for my English Language coursework and i got a high B for my English Lit coursework. i do the AQA exam board and i was wondering what were my changes of getting an A grade and would it be possible to get an A*?

    coursework is worth 40% for English Language
    coursework si worth 30% for ENGLISH literature

    Thanks

    not super high, B is 'OK I kinda get it but it could be improved quite a lot' when it comes to AQA

    look at a friends annotations who got an A or A*, find the patterns and try them in practice (timing it would be a good idea, also do a mix of tasks which you know specialty knowledge about, and some that you don't, do research on the ones you don't as it's a lot easier to put your point across if you have it), get your teacher to mark it and hopefully you'll get an A or A*, then make sure you can do it in 30-35 minutes

    Get an A in the exams and they would definitely average out to an A, A* might be a bit out of reach, but don't take my word for the I don't know for sure!

    Thanks! I've started to revise for English Lit and Language, but found it difficult in terms of revising as i don't actually know what to do. The thing that has always been my weakness is the Lord of the Flies essay for Lit and the poems from different cultures, descriptive writing and writing to persuade for English language. I'm on the AQA exam board. Would you mind helping me?
