Are you still at school or college? They should be able to arrange for you to resit as these days you have to keep retaking until you achieve a pass. Sounds like it may be better for you to retake the whole course again as you got Es in your controlled assessments.
I got a D and am hoping just to retake the exam as I got B/C in my controlled assessments.
I am gutted so know how you must feel.
Good luck!

Using sophisticated language is key to attain B's, A's and A*'s in GCSE. Personally, reading a lot if books proved extremely beneficial for me as I started to embed the sophisticated vocabulary I picked up- which made my essays and responses sound more convincing.
Hope this helps

Hi
As has already been said, studies do show that reading makes you a better writer (and visa versa in fact!).
Also, you should have a look at example essays- have you received any feedback about which areas you're losing marks in? You should try and find where you need to improve (for example, do you include quotes and state what technique is being used in literature? Do you use paragraph and sentence variation in language?)
If you find a particular area that you want to improve on it makes it a lot easier Also, is this English literature or language?

Do you have an extract of some of your work?
It also depends on what it is you're doing, you need different skills for language and literature

Lots of people will lose marks on putting in extra information that doesn't add to the piece or doesn't make sense- try refining the piece down to your point, how the text supports the point (I.e. quotes, techniques used by the author) and what this could suggest, as in the mood, use or point of the text, the ideas of the author and how it affects the audience. Hope this helps x
