higher English portfolio help? Watch
in NAT 5 my portfolio mark pulled down my overall grade, my teacher said I would definitely get high 20s and that they were very good essays, but instead in got 15 for both.
now I'm at higher, I want to improve this so I can (hopefully) get a better mark!
if it helps I'm doing a persuasive essay at the moment. it's due in pretty soon so my teacher (different one) can give feedback.
thanks for anything!
It is very disappointing when your teacher thinks your work is very good and the marker then disagrees. I got 25/30 in my Nat5 portfolio. My discursive which was writing from experience discussing health care and my creative essay was a war story. I sometimes overthink what I'm writing so I tended to get straight to the point this time. I sometimes wish I kept my discursive for my higher portfolio as I enjoyed doing it and knew it was different. I went over my work a few times too as made some grammar mistakes and changed some wording to improve it. Good luck
I wasn't exactly clear on how to pick up more marks (still not tbh) I know the basics like make little grammer mistakes but apart from that I am clueless
here's hoping it'll be better for higher!
