I got a bad grade in English. I got a C when I usually get A's, and it's actually knocked my confidence. I'm hoping to get into Cambridge to read History, and so I'm aiming for A's.
I have the ideas and the quotations, but my teacher said my main issue was my essay structure and the clarity of my expression. However, I hate the idea of writing 'simply', and I feel like it stutters my essays so to speak. Even though its probably the other way around to an examiner or teacher reading it. So I end up just complicating things.
When it comes to making a clear point or idea in English literature, does anyone have any help with that? Also, we have to use AO2 when analysing our texts, which is quotations and poetic terms etc. I can use quotations of course, but I get a little confused with applying poetic terms when it's not a poem. Other than the basic similes, alliteration, metaphor etc etc.
How can I make my ideas clearer and what about AO2 for plays and books? Watch
