Considering dropping English A-LevelWatch
I wouldn't worry too much! I can relate to how irritating it is getting lower grades than you know you're capable of achieving. At the start of the year, I was getting D's, but I turned that around and how I did it is actually quite simple. My biggest advice would be to learn the key terminology, that will allow you to cover (A01). I'm assuming you have different A0's for specific requirements that need to be met when writing your essays in order to obtain as many marks as possible. Knowing the terminology will allow you to expand on points- which links to (A02), I think. You just need to be concise and relevant with the points you're making to ensure you're not wasting time on pointless info. Sorry, if this is a bity long-winded, but hope it helps!

You'll be studying coursework in May/June so you'll have some choice of either your text choices/pairings or chose your own topic/question which maybe allow you to enjoy it more.
You might be able to do creative writing in one of them. But I think with the new specs, they've removed the recreative writing task cause hardly any centres (schools) chose it as a coursework alternative.
