    Hi! I'm really struggling to get higher than a (2:2) on an essay and it's starting to get me down. I'm moving into my 3rd year (where obviously, my grades really start to count).

    I feel as though I work hard on my essays, and when I hand them in I always get the same feedback telling me that I've clearly been lazy or not engaged with literature enough. My problem is I used to be very good in school and always achieved somewhere within the 70-85 range so I know I can do it...but there was always structure which I really miss.

    What I think would help would be to have essay examples that have achieved this grade to aim towards. I have spoken to my university about this but they cannot obviously hand out student papers due to copyright reasons and therefore unable to help. I was wondering if anyone had good websites (that actually tell you the grade people got or even what you guys did to improve?). I've also been to student services for essay writing but it was useless. Thanks guys!
