    Whenever I do any sort of English paper I seem to run out of time and that is the main reason that I'm not achieving any higher than a C. My English teacher has told me to just keep doing revision papers but I was wondering if there is anything else that I could do to improve on this because the knowledge is there but the timing is ruining it.

Scrutinise essays you do write yourself, cross out parts that are unnecessary so that you can identify your problem and steer clear of repeating this mistake in the future. With practice, you can perfect this
