    Hi! I'm doing GCSE English and am predicted a 9. I've always been fine at creative/ descriptive writing but I'm finding it harder and harder to do good analytical essays. We're taught to use PEE, but that doesn't help and my English teacher is terrible. Does anyone have any tips on writing good essays?

    I use PEAZ which is like pee but more i suppose you could say:
    Point
    Evidence
    Analyse
    Zoom
    Also use the correct subject terminology, make references, include context, make sure to infer, talk about the whole play or poem or novel etc and not just one part. Also when you conclude its very effective to add a new (and maybe best) point but don't write a whole new paragraph. Watch Unjaded Jade and Revision with eve, they are so good and honestly they're not boring (im picky with what i watch so the idea of watching videos about how to get good grades in a given subject makes me want to put needles in my eyes but they're really good and helpful)
