    Do they still do January exams?
    I do certainly, since my exam board isn't in England the linear exams don't apply to me. Though I do 4 maths papers instead of the regular 2, and todays paper is supposed to be the hardest exam of all the maths exam... Harder than the June maths exam I still have to do :confused:

    That sounds grim. Well, good luck all the same

    If only I can say it went well... I revised so much for circle theorems only to find there was zero. Zero. Defo isn't a very good mark... Probably a B max since I didn't know a lot of the paper and ended up just doing the "don't leave any space blank" thing...

    Good luck on yours!

    OMG, same! Panicked so much about surds. Nope. Nada. None. Now they'll be on the next paper - or hopefully not, seeing as I suck at them for some reason... I always work out the answer as I'm leaving the exam.... ._.

    I'm sure they went well - you're just focusing on what went badly not what went well (glass half full or empty, you know - not that I can talk being the obvs great optimistic I am! :P).

    Thanks! Hoping to drag my mark up - or at least not drag it down. :/

    I got B/C in my AQA English Language Controlled Assesments. They count for 40% of the grade. Any tips on how to boost my grade to an A in the English Language paper.

    It's been ages since I've posted here! I got my Maths GCSE results for the exams I sat in November and I got an A, which is a full GCSE!

    I have my English language exams next week which I'm not looking forward to, I haven't done too well on past paper practice.

    I hope everyone else's January exams are going well

    I always seem to remember everything in the last 5 minutes :emo:...

    Nah, definitely not, I missed out a lot as in I mean probably 2/5 of the paper was left to guessing It was quite a logical paper and while the past papers you could check your answers in the last 30 mins, this paper only left me with the last 5 mins to think of the 2/5 that I left out...

    Lets hope you pull it up rather than dragging it down

    Life...

    I hate logical papers - I end up feeling more stupid than normal for not using my brain -- getting spoon-fed techniques to do questions has its downfalls...
    But if the paper was a hard one, maybe the grade boundaries will be lower?

    Ahaha, yes.
