Can you advise this student nurse?
“Basically, I don’t think I’m clever enough to write at university standard.
“I found writing essays at A-level really easy and always had good marks but we had to do three essays last term and the highest I scored was 51%. The other two were 40% and 38% - which is a fail!
“I’ve been so disheartened since we got our marks back and can’t really figure out where I went wrong. The marking criteria aren’t very helpful.
“Any tips on how I can improve my writing? I feel like there’s something I’m missing and I’m so worried now that I’m not even going to pass first year!”
