    Aw yeah how are you finding it?

    What would you rather prefer power and Conflict or love and relationships?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I'm not sure I haven't looked at power and conflict but I quite like the poems in love and relationships and my teacher is great so I'm pretty happy. The only thing is that I don't like English but I'm not bad at it. Just need to do a lot of practise essays and overload my teacher with marking them How about you?

    How will you memorise the poems?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    i will honestly try to repeat the word out aloud until i get it. honestly, cos i am aiming for a high grade i guess it would make your life a lot easier if you learn the poems. my exam board is wjec so we will be given one poem but we have to compare it to another poem which won't be given so we have to know which poem relates to the poem given to us. if yours is similar, and your in the exam and if you don't know what the quotes are then your more likely to get a lower grade than someone who has remembered the poems well.

    i have made flash cards and annotated the poems. it will require a lot of revision as there are 18 poems for me so yeh. lol

    Difficult I guess. For English for the mock exams I got a level 7 and for maths I got 6.3.

    For English I'm planning just to learn the general quotes that our rich in language and stuff.

    I'm doing AQA English and EDEXCEL maths.

    English is my strongest point for me. So I'm not as concerned as I know I could possibly get a 7/8.

    But maths is my lowest point. Me and maths just don't click. I'm targeted at a 5.

    New maths is rather hard and just confusingly worded, what do you think?
    New Maths is alright in lessons, and then when it comes to exams it's just like when did I even learn this?

    Hi, I thought I'd join in as I am also doing the new GCSEs this year. For English, I am studying Macbeth, Great Expectations, An Inspector Calls, and Power & Conflict. My exam board is AQA. For English, my main concern is the fact that we are not given the text. Maths has become really difficult, expecially since I find it boring so tend to get distracted. The exam board is Edexcel.
    If any of you guys are doing OCR 21st Century Science, I have a couple of threads on them *

    We were originally doing Jekyll and Hyde but changed to ACC this year because it's easier aha. The other half of the year is still doing Jekyll and Hyde though - let's see who gets better results!

    I find maths really easy! However, I find English Literature and Language very hard. I guess everyone has different talents... I am doing Power and Conflict for Literature and the following Novels - Animal Farm / Romeo and Juliet / Christmas Carol.
    I just did my mock exams in January and I got a 9 in Maths but a 5+ in English Lit and Language. Who else is doing the same as me?
