Hi my name is yasir and I'm taking my GCSEs this year meaning I'll sit new spec for maths and English... and basically I'm like really struggling to pull myself together and I've got like 4 months and a half left and I'm really wanting to get A in these core subjects (7 and above) but like especially for English I'm struggling like Macbeth I really hate because it's kind of more a review based essay questions where as inspector calls it's more quote analysis.... this week I've received Macbeth homework and the theme was supernatural and like I spent 3 hours on it and achieved nothing ... I'm good at English I guess my English skills seems to pop out at random times which don't help .... basically I need real help on saving English and history ... and I do aqa spec inspector calls , Macbeth, pride and predujice and conflict cluster poems.... Anyone who thinks they can't literally give me the best advice on achieving an A please state your advice !!!!! Oh and history B edexcel .. crime and punishment, nazi germany and protest law and order

You can PM me and I'll see if I can help. I got A*s in my IGCSE lit & lang and GCSE History. Is there anything specific you're struggling with? The more detailed you can be the easier it would be to help.

Yeah I've basically got 4 months left and im really struggling with English language like paper 1 I can barely remember how to answer the questions and paper 2 language I just can't seem to master question 3 and 4.... abd for history the thing that is annoying me is that I won't get the marks for stating the facts but following order paragraph to get the marks and like I haven't started revising for it but I can't find any resources to take notes from and I'm not very fond of using the text books

Hi. I studied the old specification last year for English. English Language comes across as easy but in reality, you have to be quite good in order to pass. Obviously, last year there was a higher or foundation tier and most students with a target of a C went for the foundation tier and they passed. English Language is hard to revise for, I certainly recommend revising your timings as this is where more students become stuck. Also, you need to be able to use varied language in all of your answers to gain higher marks. Vary your sentence starters, use different types of paragraphs (one line builds up tension!). On a further note, try and master the reading section just incase the writing section is difficult! YouTube and TES are both good places to revise from.

Hope this helps
