    I did WJEC English Language and got an 8.
    There are many different parts to it so I'll address all.
    For the analysis of fiction and non fiction, I would highly recommend learning a list of techniques. Once you have this, do exam- style questions. For other subjects, not having practice questions would be difficult, but for english there is no mark scheme so get your teacher to constantly give exam style questions, complete them, get the teacher to mark critically and redo, working on your weaknesses each time. Practice makes perfect

    For the creative writing, I got full marks.
    I would advise learning your own made phrases that can be applied to all stories and have a bunch of techniques in them. For example, I constantly used "Autumnal leaves pirouette across the serene sky, as sunset bleeds across the horizon". It can be applied to any theme because it is a setting and ticks loads of boxes. Practice also makes perfect. Furthermore, read good books. This will give you a grasp of how a writer uses structure etc, which you can use. Hope this helps!

    This channel helped me so much for both English Lit and Lang. Would definitely recommend a watch.

    If you see extracts from books in class, I would recommend reading them- they are chosen for a reason.
    Particularly good books would probably The Book Thief, The Night Circus, The Perks of Being A Wallflower.
