In terms of spelling and grammar, reading more can expose you to more vocabulary and paragraph structure. You can also ask a friend to proof-read your work so you can see where you are going wrong and improve.

In terms of your timing, I would recommend creating essay plans - this will allow you to make sure you cover the points and share your time. Your plan should have an introduction (outline the question and what you will cover), main body (make a list of bullet points in your plan to be covered in responding to the question) and a conclusion (summarise your answer to the question, perhaps highlighting the argument or two that you think it most important).

Practising your essays under timed conditions can also be a big help. The more practice you do, the more you can judge how much time to spend in each area and find a way that works for you.
