    It's on this AQA English language thread here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...2#post42775942

    That thread seems more active so I recommend you ask your questions there as well

    Yes, that mark is certainly achievable, although how many UMS marks do you need? If you need full UMS in this exam then you can afford to lose a few more marks

    For Speaking and Listening controlled assessments, I was given these marks: 26/30, 28/30. 28/30 which totals to 82/90 marks. However, on the AQA raw to UMS converter, the maximum raw mark is out of 45 and not 90, so has my teacher made a mistake or is this normal and I just have to halve my marks (to get it out of 45)?

    I'm also doing that exam but I'm nervous for it since English is my weakest subject.

    I was given mine as: 13/15, 14/15, 14/15 which adds up to 41/45.
    I'm nervous too, I'm usually an A student, but in my mock I ended up with a D in English Language:unimpressed: I'm doing pretty much all the past papers possible

    Does anybody have any tips for both the reading and writing section on the Foundation paper?

    Worrying that I'm going to fail, many thanks in advance!
    Section B is easy as long as you read articles and go through past papers.
    Also, to get good words check on the reading section as they use a lot of complicated words. 9I found out this after I sat the exam in January.
