Hi! I was just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to improve GSCE English lit and language grades? (bearing in mind I'm in year 10?) Thanks!

Read a lot (especially any A*, even A Level essays you can find) and write a lot (practise makes perfect).

Apart from that, make sure you know your material (quotes + plot of each text).

Good luck

I had a similar problem in year 10, and to overcome it, I read more, and wrote more essays.
As boring as it seems to write essays, they really help with your linguistic techniques and so on

Go onto the board website which your school is using, I would presume OCR, but possibly AQA, go onto their website and have a look at some past papers, and essay questions and have a go. Try to do some persuasive argument essays, they really help.
