    Hello
    I'm doing my last year in college and I'm studying English Lit, Maths and Physics. I got a E in my Edexcel English exam in As level - C in c/w and U in exam paper.
    I am really struggling with English Literature because English is not my first language and I first learned it when I moved here in year 7. I didn't really learn the basics. So I have trouble writing essays and it takes me hours to write an essay. I am having troubles with spelling as well. To improve I read a lot since summer and I don't have much time before my English As paper resit - 6 months. So please give me advice how I can improve my writing.

    I really want to get a B or C.

    My friend was much the same as you, and she just read lots too! I was failing my English Literature GCSE last year, and I honestly just asked my teacher for help. He was more than happy to oblige, so the best advice I can give is ask for help. It paid off and I ended up with an A and am now doing it at A Level:-)
    P.s if you need any help, you're more than welcome to PM me, I dunno how much help I'll be, but I can try :-)

    I got A in gcse as well because my teacher in school really helped me. But my teacher in sixth form doesn't really help. She is really intimidating so I can't really talk to her. Your friend what did she get at the end?

    She got an A at AS, now doing A2. Her UMS was like 95 too, she did really good! I'll ask how she studied and stuff
