    Okay, that's fine. No it's not invalid. I was proving your point wrong. It had nothing to do with what the OP was saying. Clearly, I misunderstood the marking bit, but you clearly misunderstand the deadlines. This will go in circles if you can't agree to disagree.
    I've re-read through your previous posts to see if I was missing something, however I wasn't. You said that deadlines are 'way before' May, which implied that the deadlines for this series of exam are before May. In reply to my post you said that deadlines are 'NOW in May'. Do you not see the contradiction? I'm not having a go at you, I'm simply preventing other people from receiving incorrect information.

    It was not a contradiction, it was a correction. I made an error and I had looked over and corrected my mistake.The estimated grades and etc, deadlines are usually in the Q4 of the year. As it is seen on the link I did put. I don't know how you can challenge me on it, when it's there in black and white.

    Which page in the document are you referring to? I would like to take a look.

    You have read the document wrong. From October onwards they are providing information about the actual exams (exam entry and prelimniary material). By checking questions papers, they mean reviewing the actual exam, hence why they say question papers and not answer papers/booklets. There is no mention of CA's in October. Hope you have understood where you've gone wrong.

    What are you on about? I'm on about grades aha. I've past caring about the exams, examiners, marking etc. I was on about grade predictions and forecasting grades and cash-ins etc.

    I see. You confused me on the post where you said deadlines are now in May, which made me think you were talking about CA's.

    No-no, as I did say - I made a correction, which you seem to have no seen perhaps. But as I said, I misunderstood, and so did you.

    Deadlines are NOW in May, because November, Jan and March exams have been axed. However before this was from October.

    AQA: http://store.aqa.org.uk/admin/calend...DATES-1314.PDF all dates.... If I'm wrong, this must be wrong too. So pipe down.
    Deadlines for submitting forecast grades for the summer have been in May for at least 10 years. The AQA' document you've linked doesn't suggest anything different

    First off, obtaining a level 6c for an essay is pretty good in itself.

    1. If you are disappointed with the mark you achieved then take into consideration the comments that the teacher gives you and make sure you include the notes that she/he states in your next essay.

    2. Try working on technique too - whether be English where you're analysing poems or adverts or History where you're developing an essay about a certain time period.

    3. Make sure you always make a plan before writing an essay because your ideas will flow nicely in chronological order and you won't be marked down for having a sloppy essay and having a peculiar structure that is difficult to grasp.

    4. In GCSE exams, examiners will not know your target grade so they will not base your written work on the target grade you've achieved because they have no idea. Write efficiently, effectively, and to the point to get maximum marks and the grade you want to achieve.

    Hope this helps
