In my mocks, I got 9 As and a C in English(67%) that was lowest I have ever received in English, I really don't want to get a C in my junior cert, I was wondering should I consider grinds or not? Does anyone have any tips as to how to improve my grade?
practice as much as you can with all questions and learn all relevant quotes for your play and poetry. I got a C for English too in my mocks last year but in the junior cert I got an A. In the exam try to write down everything you know about the subject matter you are focusing on. I think a lot of people struggle to put down everything they know and end up getting a lesser grade than all the work they put into their study. That's what I realized when I did my mocks. Hope that helps!
your welcome! There is still hope in you getting an "A" don't worry.
No I wouldn't get grinds!! Did you really study for it?? If you just put more work into your studied section, learn quotes! I'm doing to kill a mocking bird for my studied novel and I'm actually reading the novel again so I remember more quotes!! Do past exam questions on the studied section and write a list of feelings and themes in what you have studied! Learn media studies definitions and practise essay writing techniques!! You could definitely get an a in English if you put the work in good luck!!
