    English Lit = Screw, even though it is probably one of the easiest subjects, especially Lit
    I'm sure you had lots of fun memorising texts inside out since you find it easy

    Woah, you need to wake up that early?!
    On normal school days I have to wake up at 7 if I have a morning exam (compulsive breakfast), but if not then I can wake up/get up at 8:30

    Depends really, on when you sleep. If possible, sleep for 7 and a half hours. Either that, or 9 hours. I'd probably wake up at 5:45, you might end up lying in for 15 mins as well.

    Well everyone says something about wanting a C at least, I'll definitely get more than that for both. I think I'll just omit my Lit from my UCAS.
    You don't really need anything in it though.

    When institutions say they want 5A*-C grades including English and Maths, they mean Language, not Literature :mmm:

    yup, I know. Why am I even doing English Lit btw?
    Scumbag British education system

    I guess I could go on about how English Lit is actually quite helpful which is why you have to do it in IB, but it seems too **** ._.

    Well, my revision for this exam begun around 40 minutes ago so we'll see but I did get 100 UMS in the 30% CA so I'm not really bothered if I get an A* or A.

    I prefer to think of GCSEs as "actual education taster sessions" :lol: People can find out what they might be interested in.

    I imagine that PRINCE is my class' equivalent to RAVEN (Reputation, something, vested interest, expertise, neutrality? I don't actually use it )

    The content is actually quite useful to know for other subjects and just everyday life, you know :lol:

    Yes my class use braven... Which just sounds outdated and I forget what they stand for, so I use prince...
    Perception, reputation, (vested) interest, neutrality(/bias), corroboration, expertise.
    It just sounds better :cool:
    Yeah it is but also vey easy to not get marks for, if you choose one word, and the examiner has a different one, even if they mean the same thing you can loose the marks
    (Btw your A would be the "ability to perceive") x
