I really can't write the essays! I can remember most of the quotes, but I've written about 5 essays in the past fortnight and my grades are consistenly dropping . At the start of the year I was getting about 21/25, then in the prelim I got 16, a few weeks ago I got it back up to 18 or 19, but now I'm lucky if I scrape a C.
I'm so scared of failing because of the essays - Close Reading used to be my downfall, but I've managed to pull that up and get high Bs or low As when we do them in class.
So does anyone have any tips whatesoever? I don't care how insignificant they may seem, only I'm getting a bit desperate now!
On second thoughts, it's probably my own fault. I'll ask another teacher who maybe won't be so biased/know about the books we've been studying
