I am literally failing at english and I don't know what to do. I am doing quite well in all my other subjects but am really struggling with English. I am especially struggling with how to answer the questions in the language papers (specification EDEXCEL) and how to write a good essay for Romeo and Juliet, Jekyll and Hyde, Poetry and Woman in black.Also I have problems with phrasing my sentences and ideas.
Does anyone please have any advice. My personal target and predicted target is a 7 (A) and I am currently on a 4 (C). Please help I would be SO grateful!

In my december mocks i got a 7 in english language and a 4 in english literature. honestly for lit all i do is notes but a lot of people benefit from flashcards. try, say, writing an essay on each theme on each of your books for lit and one for each character. I'm terrible at poetry though lol so idk about that

You need to research. Learn the structure of the questions so you know what you're going to be asked about e.g. Structure and in which question. Read sample answers and learn key sentence starters. Structure you paragraphs point evidence analysis link ( to question) and get your timings right. Keep practising.

I was poor in my literacy skills but I score A*'s very easily at English Language. Just include a couple of statistics, emotive language a rhetorical question. Include some five syllable words; or at least more unorthodox ones as that is a considerable portion of your marks. Make sure you are able to critically think and throw arguments back and forth in your essays if its relevant to the question, the more unique and insightful the better.
