I would really appreciate it if you guys could give me some tips on these as I really would like to improve
hello! please do not feel discouraged, c's and b's are still great grades! for english literature, i really recommend essay practice. do multiple questions which contrast each other so you can revise and recall different contexts and critics for different situations. if you can, i would also recommend a teacher marking this with you in the room for both vocal and visual feedback. however, if you do feel that you are unable to repeatedly write full essays, i suggest writing a few main body paragraphs for marking as this will still indicate where you need to improve. unfortunately, i cannot help you on politics and history as i do not study these. i really hope this helps. good luck for the future!
use chatgpt to predict possible essay questions by inputting all the previous past paper questions, then based off the questions they give you, tell them to make an essay plan. turn the essay plan into flashcards and memorize tf out of them
