Hey guys, I really want to improve my English grade, at the moment. I did IGCSE English in year 10 and I got a B and then I retook the exam in November and I got a B again - Is there anyway I can improve in English and boost up my grade to A/A*?

Read. Read as much as you can. If you're not reading, practise your writing. Can you analyse quotes and characters effectively? Can you write about mood and atmosphere or setting? Read over the books you're set and try to think about the themes they cover and how these can be analysed.
Spelling and grammar is particularly important, so make sure these are spotless.
I got an A* in English Literature and an A in English Language; I think this is mainly due to a good vocabulary and pristine spelling and grammar.

Try using bbc bitesize and quizzing yourself and getting things like york notes. They really helped me and try to make sure to get rid of any silly little mistakes... read the books as much as possible and it might sounds odd but maybe start from different parts of the book to try and get a totally understanding. Pick out a random page and try and see if you know where you are and what's going on etc.

Do as many past papers as possible and look at mark schemes. Mark schemes are the best resources to use in my opinion as they are from the examiners mouth. Look at as many journal articles as possible to see how they write and apply their knowledge aswell.
