    Im in year 10 and resently i got my results back for my first set of exams. I done ok in most of my subjects, however, i didn't do as well in english as i hoped i would. I ended up getting 27/40 ( grade 6 accourding to my teacher). I really wanted to get a grade 9 which is 34 or more marks out of 40. My question is, how to i get 34 or more out of 40 in An Inspector Calls character question [40 marks].

    quick mention: These mocks and things - teachers mark so harshly! Honestly mock tests I got grade 3s...on GCSE results day I open it to find two grade 8s. I know grade 8 isn't good enough for you - but thats GOOD! Id recommend NOT Mr Bruff but check out Mr Salles English Youtube Channel

    An Inspector Calls! Thats such a good play. I did that for my gcse and got A*!
    Some suggestions, though I'm sure you're great, mocks are always off putting and make you feel bad, but I'm sure you'l ace the real exam!!
    - try and link back to context of the time if you get marks for that
    -go beyond the basic meaning of a quote/phrase, try and think outside of the box. why did the writer use this specific word? would it sound different if tehy said something else? is the writer trying to hint at something by saying something like this?
    - try and refer to different points in the play when analysing a character, so talk about how they were at the start, maybe at an important part in the middle, and then at the end
    - analyse the difference between how they speak and how they act. look at the stage directions for that!

    All the best!
