    I want to go into medicine and I can’t even get into sixth form without 2 6s in English lit and Lang.
    My target is an 8 but I moved it down to a 7.
    For a mock language paper 1 we had 45mins for section B and I wrote 2 sentences.
    I don’t know what to do! How do I get 2 6s in English? Does anyone have any tips that you used to go from a low grade to a high grade? Or any tips at all for that matter?
    Please help me!!! H

    do you think it's to do with your writing speed or do you struggle with english lang generally as a subject?

    Both really. I’m quite a slow writer and I really struggle to imagine things and get them down on paper.

    practice questions!! and mrbruff does some great videos on english lang questions.
    make a few minutes to make a plan before some of the big mark questions. for example, annotate the image in section b but think out the box- how did it come to be that scene? who's taking the photo? what could be happening before and after the photo was taken?
