Most important thing, just completely fill it with techniques, metaphors, similes and personification etc. Never think you've put too much in. For every adjective, describe it with a simile, for every setting describe it with adjectives, better to have 3 and better if they are alliteration, for every begging, a rhetorical question, for every object, describe it with personification.

if you're gonna do a level english, this is terrible advice. but if you wanna drop it, try doing this. i got a 7 for language.

basically, i 'pre-planned' these really detailed paragraphs of various moods. these would be like level 8/9 grade. then i would memorise it.

when i did the exam, i implemented the paragraphs into my essay. therefore, i had a couple of really good level 8/9 paragraphs, but really trash level 5/6 grade paragraphs as well, which gave me a 7.

since we don't really know the upcoming question for english language, it's good to pre-plan some 'moods' or 'emotions' for a setting if your vocabulary sucks (like mine) and you have no creativity.

here are the different moods i took the time to write:
- happy
- sad
- angry
- calm
- mysterious
- tense
- cold (as in weather)
- hot (as in weather)
- standard (nothing interesting is happening)

ik it may seem like a lot of memorising, but if you have no creativity like me, try this. you don't even have to memorise the entire paragraph word by word, but try to memorise the key words. plus, you had 2 years so....

this is also the same strategy i used for english literature btw. i pre-planned different descriptions of the characters of the book we were reading, which got me an 8.

good luck, and remember it's only a couple of months till you can relax

Thank you, I seem to focus too much on the plot and forget about adding techniques.
