I got an A in my Higher English this year so I'd be happy to help people, when required.

"Mr Graham snorted in disbelief, "me?" " shows how Mr Graham refuses to believe that anything could possibly be his fault. ...

That's one of the ways how I do it anyway...

Integrated quotation!

You basically write a normal sentence except a word or phrase is a quote from the text. I'll try and get and think of a good example if you want.

You can do things like..

The author writes, "Mr Graham snorted in disbelief, "me?", highlighting the idea that...
Mr Graham refuses to believe that anything could possibly be his fault, an idea that is supported/developed/integrated by the line, "Mr Graham snorted in disbelief, "me?".

By doing things like altering the sentence order, and subtly changing words- I seriously abused my thesaurus- you can say exactly the same thing without sounding repetitive It worked for me!

I was in a general/foundation class last year but for my exam I got a 1 in my writing, 2 in my reading (idk how that's even possible) and a 3 for the talk so I could do higher my teacher last year recommended me to do it, it sounds like torture though :l

I'd say give it a go. I got a 3 in everything in English except the talk which I got a 1 in and managed to get an A at Higher. Apply yourself and you will do well, I'm sure.

Avoid directly introducing the quotes. Just make a general statement and provide your evidence. I have no idea what text this quote is from, so the following is completely made up:

Mr Graham throughout the novel is completely incapable of accepting responsibility for his actions. His child-like avoidance of this emphasises the shame he feels for his actions.

"Mr Graham snorted in disbelief, 'me?' "

Mr Graham lies to the face of other characters and even seems to have started convincing himself of his innocence as evidenced by his bodily reaction indicating genuine surprise of accusation. His "shock and horror" (integrated quote) only serves to cause his neighbour to distrust him more, which ultimately leads to the character's downfall.


Never, ever say "This shows" after a quote, nor any variant of it such as "highlighting the idea that". It becomes repetitive and will probably annoy the marker, and it can come across very patronising at times.

Coming from Int.2: Don't memorize the essay, instead memorize the poem and the ideas it contains. Because while you may know your essay question tomorrow, you won't know it come May.

I suppose I could help with some things in Higher English - I did get an A but I never liked the subject. If anyone is doing Romeo and Juliet, Home, My Last Duchess, Afternoons, or At Grass I could probably help with them - particularly My Last Duchess and the Larkin poems; I loved them.
