try looking on youtube there’s some good videos on there explaining each type of punctuation and how to use them in sentences. Looking for videos targeted towards gcse students might be a good place to start

There might also be some pages about punctuation on websites like bbc bitesize!

Using brackets, commas or dashes around a parenthesis is always great. A parenthesis is an extra little bit of information added to a sentence as a sort of afterthought - you could do without it, but it's useful to know.

Semi-colons and colons are very valuable too, as well as inverted commas and an ellipsis. Use The Punctuation Guide or BBC Bitesize to get started! Just remember, don't force elaborate punctuation. Write what comes naturally and hopefully you'll find some good opportunities to include different punctuation. And don't forget about exclamation and question marks, they're often overlooked but definitely count in a marking scheme!
