Hi all, I’m currently in year 11 studying English Lang, English lit, maths, history, science (double), graphics, resistant materials and media.
I’m so obsessed with doing well in English language (AQA) and revise the most for it. In my first set of mocks I got a grade 6 which I happy with considering I was in Y10. Year 11 second set I got a 5 which I was so upset with and wanted to cry; even if it sound pathetic. But the most recent ones (February) I got a grade 8 and was over the moon. But I can’t accept it as doing good as my grade vary, when I took the mock I got a 5 in I knew I didn’t do that well so it kinda justifies this but still. Has anyone got any advice to reassure myself and tips on how to revise English language AQA?
Many thanks

Hiya, what do you struggle with? Etc language techniques, spag? You need to make sure you have enough time for Q5 As it’s worth basically 1 whole paper 40+40=80 80/160. It’s hard to pin point what to write about in q4 and 2 but I can email you sample of my work where I got 8/8 and 14/16

Which question 4 are you taking about? P1 or P2? And for question 2 (guessing language question) talk about the quote and what it suggests: e.g: “the ship shook, the monstrous metallic burp” suggest a dark and Erie atmosphere creating a sense of discomfort for the reader as the ship is slowly engulfing all that dares to walk on it. The writer has personified the ship as a metaphorical creature which creates a image of the ship being beaten and torn up by the ocean. Not very good just a quick example.

I suggest you write 3 paragraphs on any language feature you can spot, metaphor, sentences, personification
