    A* students, I need urgent help in both language and literature. I just can't 'think-outside-the-box' and be 'sensitive, convincing and insightful'. I really suck at English anyway, but please help me improve my marks in it?

    It might seem that way, but I think you just need a little bit of encouragement and a few ideas to get you started. English is pretty subjective so there's no right answer as you can find new ideas every time you go over a text. You just have to be able to justify your ideas :^_^: Do you have a specific question you're working on at the moment?

    To get the higher grades you should use this structure
    Point
    Evidence (quotations/phrases)
    Analyse (Interpretation also an alternate interpretation)
    Zoom into language (individual words)
    Relate to context

    My teacher taught me PEAZR.
