    Hi, I'm currently in my AS year and I am taking English Literature and History and was wondering if anyone could help me with how you are meant to structure essays for the the two different subjects? On 2 different assessments I've got C's for both subjects and was just wondering how you achieve higher marks as my college minimum predicted grades are A's, but I'm not quite sure how to structure my essays/ get those higher grades. Any help is appreciated

    Ah ok, thank you anyway! I think we are doing Nazi Germany in A2 I've got plenty of time as history is linear now so I won't be sitting any AS History exams this year they are all at the end of A2. My teacher isn't the best but hopefully he will go over exam technique soon.
