    If I get a bad grade in my Merchant of Venice and Spies controlled assessment for AQA English Literature, and do well in the exam, will the controlled assessment hinder my grade? Also, not that I am planning to do to this, but if I don't do well in say both English Language and Literature, what will be the repercussions?

    As Someone who got 37/40 in the English Literature Othello Work. I think that i will slightly hinder your grades however if you get high A's on the Understanding Prose and Unseen Poetry you should get an A.

    tbh it depends how bad your Shakespeare was

    Oh okay, well that is a really good grade first of all! I can understand that a low grade will hinder my overall grade which is really annoying! I just feel like my teacher is not putting in the effort to help me. I showed her my work yesterday and she said it's not brilliant, but it will do. Like, she didn't exactly say what I should do. I think I should be fine with the poetry and my Shakespeare will hopefully not be too bad.
