You are in the exact same position as me!!! For my mocks, i just about got a 4 in Language. We've had another mock (just for English since pretty much everybody failed as well) and i got an 8.

First, is it Part A (the one on the texts) or Part B (story) that you're struggling on?

Read examiners reports and do practice questions. I'm sure your teacher would be happy to look at them if you emailed them. Basically just work out HOW to answer each question so you don't waffle and waste time in the exam

watch videos by Mr Bruff on YouTube on all the individual questions, they're so so so helpful and got me from a 4 to a 6 in the mocks (aiming for a 7 for the actual thing)

I recommend, if you have not bought it yet, buying the english language cgp book, it's amazingly good and includes model answers for every grade and specimen papers to try! It got me from a 5/6 to a 8, now i'm aiming for a 9. Good luck!

It seems like such a waste to buy it now though😂

Practice works wonders if you can get your work marked quickly and improve from your feedback.
