    So, I got my mock results back today and it looks like I got an E in my English Lang/Lit exam; my other two I passed! (thank god)

    I can't say I'm too surprised at the result as I found the exam pretty difficult and felt quite unprepared for it! I think I didn't revise enough and obviously now know I need to get my arse in gear and allot more time toward English.

    I'm trying not to be too disheartened as I honestly really love the subject :/

    However, I was just wondering whether you think it's even possible for me to turn this around from an E to at least a C, but preferably a B! Any revision techniques or advice?!

    Thank you

    Yes you can turn it around! With hard work and dedication!

    I don't do Lang/lit, I do English lit by itself. I recommend wider reading - journals to enhance your knowledge of alternative interpretations (reading around the subject) and making colourful mind maps! Or you can watch videos on YouTube if that helps.

    I got an A (unexpectedly) in my lit/lang AS. I know lots of people struggled with it, and ended up getting grades that were very out of place for them.
    I remember revising a lot of terminology (I did this last year) and you really want to cram that into your answers, because they love it. Don't waffle around in your answers, because they want proper analysis, not just filler.
    If it's the same as what I did, the AS isn't too important because it's the actual A level exam that means everything (but obviously you want a nice grade for your UCAS)
