    I do AQA English as well and after the mock the head of English told us that if we finished, then we failed, because apparently the exam is so hard that it's impossible to complete it in the 2 hours provided.

    AQA for English and OCR for RE. I think my coursework is likely to push my English grade up though.

    What did you get in English?

    Separately. I got a B on English Language. It was your paper and I got 48/80. Do you have any tips on how to improve my grade?

    I haven't got the results back for English Literature yet.

    For English language (especially the exam), read the mark scheme- there's loads of things it asks you to include the PETE/R structure is good for language too

    You need to make sure you're using all the techniques you'd normally look for in literature. Rhetorical questions are always great to put in and fairly easy too fit in make sure your writing is sophisticated, use nice vocabulary too studies also show the more you read, the better you get at writing (and visa versa)
