    I'm in year 11 and I was wondering what I could do from now till the exams to try and get a 9 in both english lit and english lang?

    What are you predicted? Because I doubt you could get from a 5 etc to a 9.
    I'm predicted an 8 as you have to be in the top 5% for a 9 (I'm not naturally the best at English but go to one of the top 10 schools in the UK so nobody should be getting below 8)
    What board do you do for each, and what texts are you doing for lit?
    I could send you my notes if you'd like if we cross over for anything (I do MOV, AVFTB & Silas Marner along with a poetry anthology)
    But in general I'd suggest writing lots and lots of practice essays!
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
