how to improve in essay style subjects Watch
my strong subjects are maths and physics and I'm good and calculations and straight answers. however I really struggle in subjects like RS and English where there is no correct or wrong answer. how can I improve that?
Make sure you answer and refer directly back to the question regularly throughout your answer and describe/compare/state/explain as is shown in the question. Put together a really strong argument - use your own knowledge sporadically but make sure you use as much as you feel is appropriate.
I take 3 humanities (Economics, Geography and History) as well as German and English Lang/Lit for GCSE - essay writing definitely isn't my strongest point - I'm much better at maths and sciences - just as you stated you were!
Don't pontificate, stick to the essay brief and plan, keep referring back to it so you have a structured, easy flowing essay not some mess. It's easier for me to write something in more words then it is to write in less. Precision in essay writing is an acquired skill.
To start with write detailed essays plans, an essay with a good plan will practically write itself, it stops you going off topic and it takes less time to write!
