    In our school not everyone is allowed to coursework such as the higher sets which is annoying because I would rather do coursework and get the best grade possible than have an extra exam and I hate English
    Also, does anyone know the grade boundaries for speaking and listening?

    Hey Q3 might be messy but its the easiest to score the highest as you only highlight some quotes and then write it word to word..

    You should answer the questions as;

    - Q3A (20Mins spent) (15 marks) (Reading)
    ---Q3B (25Mins spent)(5 marks) (Writing)

    -Q1 Second (45Mins spent) (20 marks) +(Spend 25Mins planning)

    -Q2 Last (30Mins) (10Marks)

    Hey, i suggest you to complain to the headteacher or tell ur teacher ect or parents informing this issue.. 60% is more than the exam.. even if u get full marks in the exam you will only get a D. if lucky C if S&L included...

    or maybe you are doing a different spec to Igcse Eng Lan 0522...
    just incase find it and ask the teachers... also i think the schools are meant to send the CW 3 weeks after easter.

    Yeah I think I'm aware how to answer it considering the exam is less than a month away lmfao.. it's the easiest to gain marks but at the same time it's a hit and miss - you could have a relevant point but if it's not on the mark scheme you don't get the mark

    edit: my teacher is an examiner and taught us to answer the questions chronologically
