I'm in year 10, and I have recently done my first English Language and English Literature assessment of the academic year. My English Language assessment was having to describe a picture which was given to us.My English Literature assessment was to describe the theme of responsibility in An Inspector Calls. I got the results today and it turns out I got a grade 6 (new grade B). I know this isn't bad, but as I've been writing other paragraphs about our new topic, A Christmas Carol (In Eng Lit) my teacher says my paragraphs are grade B standard. We haven't started the new language topic yet.
The thing is I don't want my grade to stay at a consistent level, I want to improve to at least a 7 (new grade A). I just need some advice. For my English Lit paragraphs I use PEECO. Point Evidence Explain Context Opinion. I also include subject terminology What else could I include to just push my work, to that higher level?
In Language, I include a range of language features such as:emotive and descriptive language, hyperbole, alliteration, oxymoron's, similes, metaphors, personification and pathetic fallacy. What else could I include to gain a higher level?
I am with AQA and I would appreciate any sensible contribution. Thank you.
