    Hi everyone!
    So I just got an E on my A Level history essay (I'm doing AQA if that helps) and my aim is an A*! I usually get As but I really don't know how I f***ked up so badly there! Ah well, I was wondering if any of you have any A* essays that I could look at to improve and try and get the idea of how to get into the top band? IT would be such a great help! I'm in dire panic! Thanks so much!

    If you usually get A's then theres nothing wrong with your technique.

    Get feedback on your essay and see why you scored such a low mark. You probably didnt understand the core material or failed to answer the question.

    Look up examiners reports on the exam board website and see how they scored essays. It shows you the difference between grades.
