I am a private candidate for this may's AS exam, CIE board. I am taking English language, literature and maths. I am finding it particularly difficult for the English for I didn't take first language in my olevel (because my school disapproved it) and taking English in alevel from second language was a huge jump. I am finding it really hard to write commentaries which is paper 1 in the language exam. I don't know what to talk about nor is able to fit into the time limit. I am also having some grammar problem, I am being careless of the tenses. I am also finding it hard for the Drama paper because of the time limit and the little availability of sample responses. I would be immensely grateful to anyone helping me because that sure will be of great help. I am really in need of some help for the issues I am facing.

Look at the mark schemes and see why you were put in a certain marking band ( they are almost identical most years).
also Olevel they were made into GCSES?
try taking some online grammar courses to improve your tenses
and do your first language at ALevel lots of ppl in my school did it

Yea even currently I am looking into you tube and it does help a lot. I started being able to identify my biggest error (being too stressed to answer that I fail to understand the question). Anyway thank you for replying. It's just really stressful nowadays
