    Explain your situation to another teacher like the head of the department/ a deputy head and they'll sort you out.

    If you have any mocks coming up then you should take that chance to score at least a B and prove yourself.

    Maybe talk to a teacher who knows you well like your form tutor. If it still doesn't work out, just get your parents involved.

    How any teacher would see it "if this student got a D all together with your planned CA, how can they possibly cope with the pressure of higher paper?"

    If you're in year 11 now, there is no chance you will be able to redo your CA unless the teacher has lost it or something. Most likely they have cashed in on your CA marks now.

    If you really insist, how about talking to your Head of Year and see if h/she can speak to the Head of Department for English and take it from there really.

    I personally believe getting a solid C is better than trying to get a B and only failing to get a D. I don't think it's a wise move to be honest with you.
