    Hi all,

    I currently study English literature at AS Level. At the moment, I am currently not achieving the grade of which I want to obtain - which is only predictable, at an early stage of the course. However, I would like to improve, and the sooner the better.

    If anyone has got any tips on how to do this, they would be greatly appreciated.

    Any tips for obtaining an A grade?

    Thank you, and kind regards.

    Max up the marks on coursework and do plenty of past papers. I didn't do as well as I wanted in AS English Lit last year and this was my mistake. Listen to your teachers. Past papers, exam techniques, past papers. Good luck!

    I got an A in AS English Literature last year, and I would say the most important thing is developing good writing technique. Basically you just need to do a lot of practice, and develop the sort of style required of you, and the level of explanation needed. Also, know your texts really well, read them more than once preferably. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
