    • Thread Starter

    Especially for english literature unit 1 and 2 (AQA), for band 6 which is an A* you have to write insightfully. My teacher usually gives me A's for all my essays because I explore the text quite well; however, how can I make my writing insightful?

    Present ideas that really show you understand the text. Also ones that aren't as obvious to show that you have thought about them yourself rather than just being spoon fed them by your teacher
