A GCSE Essay about Lady Macbeth as a Powerful Character

September 21, 2017

This article contains a mock essay written by one of my students.

When I met him, he was scoring a 3 to 4 in his mock GSCE English language and literature exams. After intensive tuition sessions with me, his English writing skills improved such that he was writing at a 7 to 9 level. The essay attached below is one such example of his improved writing.

The document contains 1) the question from the mock GCSE exam, 2) his essay, and 3) my highlighted breakdown of his essay into its essential ingredients - ingredients needed in any successful essay. 

Of course, you'll also learn about the power of Lady Macbeth!
