Ask you’re teacher on how to improve. Look for exemplar writing on English language. Keep practicing exam papers. Watch YouTube vids on topics.

This is a list of techniques that work

Notes- useful for quick reading
Flashcards- perfect for questions etc
Flowcharts- for themes and characters
Mind maps- ideal for theories on texts mainly
Oral quizzes- best for memory recall
Logbooks- for anything else

Use mr bruff on youtube if you do AQA he’s amazing!!! He has loads of specific videos for each question with example answers and he does english lit too. For the narrative/descriptive what i did was memorise a whole story that could be tweaked to fit the title they give you (idk about other exam boards but for AQA) and i memorised some descriptive paragraph/phrases. It can be quite long but it got me a 9!!

Tweaked to fit any title? What if you memorised something completely different to what you get on the exam?

The titles are quite general so i think if you learnt maybe one good/happy story and one sad that’d be fine for the narrative. I learnt one about a girl driving somewhere and it was a bit melancholy but the title in the exam was ‘abandonment’ so it fit pretty well. I’d practice narrative writing anyways just in case but having a story in your head and just vomiting it onto the page helped massively, i finished writing it in like half the time i would’ve otherwise. Also learn descriptive phrases/metaphors/similes to do with weather like rain/sunny/snow/heat etc and practice descriptions for different settings (beach/abandoned house/forest etc)

it's been 3 yrs but i'm sure these tips will work!
- Focus on the mark scheme as it'll guide ur structure and help u see wht to include to hit the marks
- Watch Mr.Bruff on yt!! Open up a doc and watch his analysis vids and type anything tht stands out and ur thoughts at the time and then compile it all and print it off so u can commit it to memory. If it weren't for this i doubt i would've gotten a 9!
- Memorise all ur quotes and make flashcards for each w analysis and context on the card
