Practise past papers and get them marked by either your teacher or someone with experience (for the essay writing questions). Most English essays will follow a similar structure, introduction, your points, and a conclusion. I`d say with every point you make, follow the `PEE` or `PEELA` structure, Point (that your making in that paragraph), Evidence (either from the text or any research such as quotes), Explanation, of how it all fits together. That`s the `PEE` structure. The `LA` in `PEELA` is the same as `PEE` but goes a bit further and also wants you to Link everything back to the question, and the Apply it (for an extra few marks). It also helps to have a very good understanding of the question and text. do some extra research around it if need be! Hope this helps! :)

I would say make absolutely sure what the question being asked is. Then plan ways to answer the question do a few rough attempts if needed. Try to improve your vocabulary if it is limited. Answers that stand out have a mix of simple and complex sentences, words which show intellect and entice the reader to read on.
This is not exhaustive, but I hope it gives you a few suggestions.
