    Creative writing is especially difficult, I used so many literary techniques and varying sentence forms but still got very low marks

    I usually don't write a lot in the creative writing sections but score high marks. It's more about the literary techniques and everything, obviously you'll have to write enough, but with like a page and a half you can get pretty high marks. While I'm writing I try to put in as many techniques as possible since that's what its about really, plus try to structure it into paragraphs when you realise you're moving onto another point.
