Good afternoon everyone,

I came to UK for the first time at September 2015 , and I started AS Level straight away with taking maths and English language GCSE as they're vital for mechanical engineering course at University.
This summer I managed to get AABB and passed my math GCSE with a B at the first time.. but couldn't manage to pass English language GCSE despite repeating it three times!!!!!!!

I really really need your help to advise me what to do to get a C at least at my English language GCSE...

PS CIE is my specification.

Get revision books.
Practice exams more.
Pay for a tutor.
Watch youtube videos.

Do exams , get the marked and find out where you went wrong.
Revision books, videos and a tutor should show you what the standard is they look for. Put the two together and you should improve.

Take it seriously.

Practice a lot of writing, past papers and revise books, found out what your weak points are in English language and aim to improve them. Personally I think reading a lot of reading books is also a great help with vocabulary, creativity (that helps with story writing and makes your writing more interesting), punctuation and spelling.

Also check out this youtube channel it REALLY helped me with writing for different audiences and purposes and even breaks down all the different questions in the exams and tells you how to answer them. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEp...Dzg8jSe12tGnCg

If you're on AQA, then Mr Bruff will be a lifesaver. Mr Salles and Mrs Whelan are also pretty good too. I would recommend using Mr Bruff or whoever and just getting a workbook, because you don't want to con yourself into thinking you're revising by highlighting a revision guide. The key to English language is exam technique, and doing question after question should prepare you for the real exam.
If you're not on AQA, I don't know of any English YouTubers, so I would recommend getting a revision guide and a workbook because you don't have someone there to explain what to do to you.
As for revision guides, the CGP all-in-one ones are good (the purple ones) are great if you need it to be explained before you answer the questions or the Pearson ones are good if you just want a revision guide
