Hi,

I'm currently in Year 10, doing my GCSEs and what not. I don't feel too stressed or pressured about any subject too much, besides English. The other subjects I can learn and understand but English is a problem.

I just simply cannot understand what we are doing and what the text is suppose to mean. I'm not the sort of "creative" person who can get ideas from text, for me, there has to be a CORRECT answer. I struggle when there really isn't sort of a correct answer but we just have to explore our ideas through.

I am currently doing the Edexcel Literature (I could be wrong and it might be Language.) and we are studying the play "Educating Rita". I understand what happens in the play, but we need to analysis it and go beyond the text and find meanings and links etc. We have to do a controlled assessment (an essay) on the question "Does Rita and Frank find better songs to sing?" . I'm struggling to create a plan, find quotes and get unique ideas.

I've asked my classmates and they feel that they do not understand the text either. I've tried asking the teacher but it feels like she does not want to help me.

I would appreciate any help given and can provide any information if my post is unclear.

Thank you,

Hello! Drop me a PM and perhaps I can use an example text to show you the sorts of things you can pick out?
