I'm taking me gcses in a month or so and i feel like English language is something a lot of students get bs in because they don't see it as something to revise. I'd really like an a* but apart from learning how to write reviews and articles etc how do you revise?

Study the techniques covered in class and your textbook and be prepared to mention and identify and analyse them. Read texts similar to what might come up in your exam, after you've exhausted all the past papers. Maybe YouTube some tips for it as well... because the key to getting more than a b is how you write, not just what you write.

Also practice speedy essay writing as time may be an issue in the exam! But practice how you'd write in the exam, by jotting notes and hen expanding on them during your writing.

look at the mark schemes for the specimen papers, so you know what the examiner would be looking for. then put it into practice. there aren't past papers to do for the new specification but you can do the ones for the old spec

I’m not sure if this is the best however,I’m doing the new 9-1 English language A igcse Edexcel.Having the textbook is not necessary according to my teacher.What I’m doing is completing past papers and printing out mark schemes in order to understand and write what the examiner is expecting specifically.Does anyone think this is a good idea?
