    So my expression is letting me down in my marks. My teacher has told me to write with more confidence. But when I think fast under timed conditions, I struggle to keep the format tight. Any ideas or tips on how to write both quickly and get your point across without losing the structure and expression? Any advice is appreciated!

    PEE throughout your exam, literally.
    P = Point
    E = Evidence
    E= Explanation

    Just keep thinking of pee in your exam whilst you write and you'll be fine.

    Eg:
    *Ok so point*
    "The Rivers velocity increases as you go downstream"

    *Evidence*
    "The data collected from the River ... showed that site 8 had the highest velocity whilst site 1 had the lowest, used an impeller to calculate this"

    *explanation*
    "Because.."

    I do this in all my English exams & Classics just keep thinking of "PEE" and I tend to get high marks for structure because the examiner can easily see you've included everything .
