    So basically, I'm really struggling in English. I take economics, business and English, the two former subjects I'm doing quite well in. But in English, I'm afraid I'm going to flop seriously bad in the exam.

    My c/w is currently at a strong B grade and my mock result (this is excluding section B) was a low B grade. I'm aiming to get a B overall, but at this rate, I'll be lucky to get a C.

    My texts and poets are "The Great Gatsby", "Enduring Love", Robert Browning and Christina Rossetti.

    I have 4 days until the exam and on Monday I have a business exam, but I plan to revise these 4 days entirely on English because I am confident I can get a B in business with solely revision from weeks ago and week end revision.

    Whenever I try to do a practice question (be it section A or B), my mind goes blank. I just cannot think of things to write about, and when I do have a plan, I'm only getting about 23 marks in section A and 22 for section B.

    My poems are fully annotated and I'm currently reading a Gatsby revision guide by CGP in combination with my annotated poems. Does anyone have any general pointers for what I can do in these 4 days?

    I'm in the exact same situation. lol.
    I hope someone replies.
