My essay score was higher when I used one personal example and one historical example than when I used to literature examples. (I expected my score to be higher with literature examples and lower with personal and historical example…) Can you tell me a way or a format to write body paragraphs with literature examples?

Because I came to United States 5 years ago (7th grade 2nd semester), my English is not as sufficient as others’.

Because I came to United States 5 years ago (7th grade 2nd semester), my English is not as sufficient as others’. I took Oct SAT and got M:800, R:460, and G:640 (Total:1900). Would my score be a “bad” score for colleges with 1900 SAT scores because the range between my reading score and math score is too big? Would it be a problem? Would it “justify”?
