Ask your teacher for help, simple as that. Tell them you don't know how to write an essay and they should help you out. If the teachers don't help out, get your friends to show you their essays so you can analyze what they are doing differently
This is excellent advice. Doing this was actually the turning point for me; I was ass at English, until (a) I started asking my teacher for feedback on draft essays, and (b) grinded the shit out of practice essays. (b) was extremely tedious, time consuming and drove me to the brink of my sanity, but it got me a nice mark for English.

Struggling is good practice for uni (and life in general).

Nope. That was for Module A, right? I studied Richard III and the documentary Looking For Richard instead. I really fucking loved those texts. I've read 1984 once just because it is popular, but I can't say I really liked it. I know a lot of people do, though.
I did this as well and completely agree with Sida. 100% loved it alongside my obscure af Mod B text: In the Skin of a Lion.
