    Well, I got a 2/8 in my mock so I guess, now I have a phobia of Question 1. But I did as much as I could, even went as far to write 2 pages for it, while everyone else was WAYY ahead.

    Question 3, man, I rushed so much, I focused a lot on how he wasn't scared, but he recognized that he should be, and he was trying to hold onto his level-headedness, throughout the whole ordeal. But the guy felt something in every paragraph, and I was dying trying to complete everything.

    Question 5, I put in some things about 'making me stronger' at the beginning, but idk if that'll be enough? I mean, wtf.

    Question 6 was kinda informal, ngl, hope I don't drop marks for that.

    How's your coursework grade? Mine's a 70/80, so I'd need about a 62 for a guaranteed A*. I personally found this exam harder than last year's, so I hope the grade boundaries take a hit. xP
    69/80 I think, I do want an overall A*, but my coursework is a grade A, if I've only scraped an A* in this exam, do ya think I'll still only get an overall A?

    no f*cking way, that's trippy
    I know right loolll, but does that mean we might get marked down because the idea isn't 'original' cos I swear in Q5 you're supposed to write stuff that no one would ever think of

    it's fine if anything yours will stand out to the examiner, be thankful u didnt write an article like me hahha
    That's really reassuring thank you!
    Just to reassure you, I honestly don't think the form matters that much. In my mock, I didn't do any type of form whatsoever because I didn't realise we had to and I still got 11/16 marks and it wasn't an amazing answer so I think that doing the wrong form will lose you maybe 1 or 2 marks maximum Good luck in all your other exams

    I got 74 in coursework but I don't know if it's out of 90 or out of 80. I checked on aqa grade boundaries and there are two separate unit 3's. One that's out of 80 and one that's out of 90. So which one is it out of. 80 or 90?

    I don't think that's like a thing that's written in the mark scheme. I think it's more subconscious on the examiner's part. For example, if it's the 30th time they've read a piece on skydiving, then maybe when reading the essay, it doesn't sound as intriguing and as interesting as it would've been if the examiner wasn't bored.

    They aren't gonna be like, well damn, heard this a hundred times 4 out of 16. But they may drop a couple of marks for not being engaging enough with the audience in comparison to someone who wrote about having an abortion as an experience where they were pushed to the limits (which is a good one, I should've talked bout that)

    But i wouldn't worry, it sounds like the majority of people did skydiving and marathons, so if we go down, we're taking everyone down with us

    For sure, you'll get an A. If you've scraped an A*, you'll probably be at a low A*, considering your coursework is a high A.

    It definitely said write a letter


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I think it said 'write a letter to a newspaper article', so they probably won't deduct marks either way because if it was a letter for an article you wouldn't need to write 'dear mrs/mr' and yours sincerely at the end.

    my coursework grade was an A* but after that english exam, I'd be lucky to even scrape a C! Is it just me or did anyone feel there was barely anything to analyse for Q4? I compared source 3 with source 1 btw. Also question 5 was so annoying, I literally made it up and wrote about pushing myself when running a half marathon LOL. Honestly, I found question 2 the easiest out of all them. It's probably the only question I finished fully in the time limit of 12 mins. THE EXAM BOARD DEFINITELY NEED TO ALLOCATE US MORE TIME FGS IT'S LITERAL TORTURE.
    what did u talk about in question 4?
    did u talk about any devices?

    If your coursework is 65 that's an A so you will only need 14 in the exam to scrap the C boundary
