Hey everyone!
I’m now on my second term of my a-level English lit course, which I’m really enjoying, and I was wondering if anyone who got an A or A* at a-level has any good tips on how to get high marks in essay questions. I’ve done a few of my first ever English lit a-level assessments and getting C’s which apparently is a good start due to the leap, for context I got a 9 at GSCE, how can I gradually make my way to A/A* essays? Thanks 😊

Draw up a list of themes. Use a sample essay plan as well for guidance. Read the essay question properly too. Identify areas of essay writing to improve on as well. Make improvements to the essay. Check over your essay for spelling mistakes. It is a good idea to have two copies one that is littered full of weird mistakes and one error free. Your essay must make sense. No point in writing up a nonsense essay. A essay must be easy to read. It must be clear. Your entire essay has to fit in with the question. Make sure your essay answers the question. Tell me more.
