Plan a rough structure outlining the basis of each point you will explore before you start writing in depth.
A strong skeleton for each paragraph is first to establish your point, then to back up this idea with evidence, then to analyse the effect of this finding.
Once you have done this you can begin to thoughtfully refine and embellish your language. strong, and think about how you could change the word to something more specific and expressive.
Instead of strong, could you say: unyielding, valiant, militant or unadulterated?
Rope in as many friends and family as you can to read your essay, even if in parts, as there will always be sentences that make complete sense to you but are baffling to others.
The most interesting part of studying literature is your own perception and ideas about the text.You can start this thought with "furthermore" (which you can keep in your final draft here and there.

If you believe that the epic hero Beowulf represents Christ, use some support from the text to buttress your belief.Avoid making blanket statements about the literature without using the text as a basis.You should focus on one point of your thesis (remember? A good way to start is to use the phrase "this shows that." However, ONLY use this in your rough draft-- it is a "think starter", not a lovely phrase worth keeping in your final draft.If you eliminate it, your sentence will still make sense and also sound much better.Generally speaking to get good marks you have to do the following: To get an A* you need to be insightful, sensitive, convincing and evaluative.For an A you need to be analytical and exploratory.Double-check your work for grammatical and spelling errors.Nothing more quickly detracts from well-expressed ideas than a paper fraught with misspellings and other such errors.For a D you need to answer the question and explain your ideas with some supporting quotations from the text. 1st sentence: Topic sentence: This is like a mini-thesis statement. For instance: "Beowulf's heroism is revealed in his generosity to others." 3rd sentence: Commentary (CM): This is further explanation, connection or illumination of your CD.
