    Hate when people say things like this. GCSEs are important when applying to university as many require at least a B in English.

    So if you're just going to be condescending then don't bother posting at all.

    It's so annoying! I keep thinking how I should have done Q3 bullet points, Q1, Q2 and then gone back to do Q3 summary as its only worth 5 marks! Argh! Now just got to focus on our other exams - biology next which I'm trying to knuckle down at as its one of the A-levels I want to take..good luck! Hopefully we will be surprised with our English Lang!
    Aww we have to wait til results day to find out the truth

    Smh I did that 3,1 and 2 thing last time and I got an E because I thought that question 3 would be the easiest to do but you start spending too much time on question 3. So lucky I did it the normal way this time.

    In that case, I'd talk to your teachers as I should think it is still possible

    Do your teachers not think you are capable? If you really want higher then yes, get your parents involved as it's unfair for your teachers not to give you the opportunity to do the best you can do

    My teacher thinks I am but it's not my teachers decision. It is up to the head of department who does entries who decided to enter the whole year for foundation, when I'm clearly capable. They just want everyone to get Cs but universities want a B so I can at least get a B! But if it is not too late I'm sure there's a charge for it now either that or it is too late not sure, if it us too late i'll be the loser and upset that I left it too late

    Hi all,
    I am having a mental breakdown!! I have just done my English iGCSE Language and I've totally messed it up! I did question 3, 1 and then I had 10 minutes to do number 2. So as you can imagine, question 2 will be absolutely terrible because I couldn't even think about what the quotes meant when I was writing them down. I don't think I'll get any marks on question 2. I always got B's in my mocks, and I think ive got a D in this one. My coursework is at a B, but that would only make it about a C overall. I really wanted a B, as that's what I need for Uni to do dentistry! If I do get only a C..or below..when would I resit it? And does the resit even get taken into account? Thanks guys - hope it went well for everyone else !
    You can always retake it. I got into Imperial College with a B in English iGCSE, so don't worry.

    If I don't get a B in English Lang I can't get into the uni I'm wanting to get into?
    They probably won't care. I know someone who's now a doctor who got 2 Bs and a C at A level but his uni required straight As. You'll be fine!

    People need to realise some consider gcse's to be more important than others, it is all about personal perspective to be honest

    That really isn't fair. Definitely get your parents involved and if that still doesn't help, then take action with the school board or something. Good luck!

    I can't really comment as I don't know the structure of your exams
