    Hello everyone,
    So i'm currently in year 10 and will start Year 11 soon.
    I'm fairly pleased with my progress in Year 10, however i'm aiming for A/A* in all of my subjects, which i think, with hard work, is achievable for me in all my subjects.
    All of them.....
    ...Except English.
    Oh gosh. I have not the slightest clue about English.

    I'm currently working at a Grade 5. (New grades) And i must say, for me, that's quite the disappointment. It would be alright if i knew how to improve on it, but i really don't.
    I used to be great at English but i'm rolling downhill now. I really don't know how to do anything. I try my best in my mocks and still get a 5 (Very close to a 6, but still). I have an absolutely terrible teacher who doesn't care about us at all. I don't know how to get those marks, I don't know good writing techniques or technical terms.
    What should i do
