The first thing I can tell you to improve your grades is that you are also marked on how well you use English, and I think this is an easy way to get better grades, so be sure to double check the following things:

  • Standard English: examiners expect you to write in standard English so don't use slang or local language.
  • Punctuation: a good use of punctuation is a way of making you writing smooth, clear and punchy, so use it wisely.
  • Vocabulary and spelling: use fancy words appropriately and vary your vocabulary, also double check the spelling to not make any mistakes.
  • Tenses: remember that swapping between tenses can make your writing interesting but only if well used, do it with a good reason.
  • Grammatical structure: vary the structure of your sentences but always make sure it is correct.
  • Sentence type: use a mixture of correct sentence types to get the effect you want.
  • Paragraphs: writing in paragraphs is a crucial way to organise your writing, use them for effect too. Not using paragraphs is a big mistake.
