    B2- absolutely dreading these. Well maybe not so much now that I've just accepted failure.
    C2- better than B2, but I think I made some really sloppy errors and dropped silly marks. The grade boundaries will be high too
    P2- couldn't give one about. Hate physics.
    Business Studies- my specialist subject but I think I really flopped the exam.

    Needless to say, I'm enjoying my last few lessons in top set for Science

    If B2 was really hard and that many people thought it was, then they'll lower the boundaries, so you've probably done better than you think!

    I just have an English Language & English Literature exam results coming out in March. They're Edexcel, are they still out on the 8th?

    Did you do the new spec? So 'Understanding Prose' for Literature?

    If so, how did you find the exam?

    Finally - other students feeling the same amount of anxiety as I do! I shall be awaiting

    English language (Writer's voice) - Edexcel
    Chem. unit 2 - AQA
    Maths - OCR
    History Paper 2 - OCR
    Geography Unit 1 re-take - AQA

    I know someone has said that all the results come out on the same day, because a lot of my teachers are saying that they aren't. Sorry, but I am just confused.
    Also, good luck to all waiting for their results too. I hope you get the grades you wanted.

    I've forgotten exactly what it was, when I leave an exam all knowledge surrounding it remains in my seat haha!

    All I remember was that we had a poem... Where is Lulu.. or something along those lines. Along with 2x poems from the anthology?

    I'm in Y11 and luckily I only had 1 January exam, my English Lit poetry paper (Edexcel.)
    I have a feeling I really flunked it though, so fingers crossed.
    Good luck guys!

    Yeah I did the exactly the same texts!

    I didn't think OMAM was too bad (although it was by no means straight forward!)
    And Animal Farm was just another story altogether! I didn't even know Dreams were a theme in Animal Farm!!! :/
    Also, the extract they gave had no devices in, and I struggled to find good things to say about Major!

    I wanted an A* as well :/

    I'm Year 11, and am also sitting the poetry exam in the summer. I sat Language (the writers voice) in June 2011.

    Yep, Animal Farm was the hard part and my teacher said 1b(how the language is used to create an impression of man in the extract) was very hard with so little to talk about.If everyone struggled you will get more marks even if they were weak answers.For language devices i went for simple ones like
    verbs,nouns,adverb,adjectives instead of metaphors and onomatopoeia.What are you studying in English now?-I'm analysing the spoken language of Dizzee Rascal, Jeremy Paxman,Francesco Schettino and Gregorio De Falco for English Language.I finih English Language ad Literature in Y10 and move on to Film Studies,where appntly you watch a video clip IN AN EXAM ...:eek:
