    Hi
    Today I got my english results and I was shocked when I saw the grade D on my result paper. This is the third time that I have failed to get a C in english. I feel like I want to give up right now. What can I do to pass english?

    Request your paper back.

    This is the answering structure I use for english language paper 1 non-fiction (IGCSE CIE I think, but not sure)
    I don't know how papers vary from board to board but this could help?
    (Btw PEEZL is a key para structure that may help - stands for Point Evidence Explain Zoom and Link)
    I use this and get A/A*

    Don't give up. Keep trying. I'm the same in maths, I failed and repeated the other day and I have a funny feeling I haven't passed again, I was ready to give up, but it's all out of my head now. I can understand you.

    You need to ask yourself why you haven't passed. Do past papers and ask your teacher to mark them and he/she will be able to tell you where exactly you are going wrong. Don't give up, if you do what I said above you'll be sure to pass.

    I was the same as you. The reason why I kept getting D's was because I did absolutely no revision whatsoever. I re-sat my English Language exam in college for a second time, this time I had done revision and guess what? I had a C grade. P.s to make you feel better, it was my 4th time doing the exam after failing twice in school and once in college. But I never gave up and the revision also payed off.
