    Argh! Don't worry now... it's too late and you can't do anything...

    I did awful as well and I am predicted an A. I'll be lucky to get a C. My teacher asked me how I did and bluffed it saying it went great... god I am going to regret that on the 25th of August...

    I've never been good at English. I've always been good at Maths though so maybe that explains something? Anyhow, I think I'll just wing my next lit exam. I put the effort in and I felt like it didn't shine today.

    Hey guys,

    I sat my English Literature paper today and I'm feeling really bad about it.

    I chose the question on conflict and I elaborated on the conflict within the characters, the impending warfare, the conflict between the classes and Eric's conflict between himself and his family.

    Is it bad that I said that Eric's drinking habits could illustrate his detachment from the socialist doctrine as he is evidently uninhibited my the prospect of tainting his family's reputation and how as a result, he's more receptive to The inspectors overall message of societal unity? Feel like I've messed up.

    I also only had 20 minutes to write the Of Mice and Men section and I I started talking utter rubbish about how the patriarchy and economic instability of the 1930s makes it impossible for the American dream to be attainted.

    So done w life lol

    It sounds fine although it will depend what you wrote (the detail). the bigger issue is timing. You didnt pace yourself. Its why you practice. You are going to have to take note for your other exams and keep to schedule. Nothing to cry about. Get it out of your head and start thinking about the next one.

    tbh I always think what I write is crap hahah in my RE exam last year I thought I got an E but I got 93/100 lol.

    Thank you all so much for your advice, I wrote 2.5/3 pages in 20 minutes so I may have pulled it back. Guess we'll find out in August!

    Hope you've all done brilliantly and last year I didn't even fill out my answer booklet for RE and it didn't matter☺️
