    Ahh. Let me tell you, don't stress! I was in a BAD place in January... Honestly, I was so broken and depressed, but I came through and passed the damn exams! Just adopt an attitude of positivity, that yes exams suck, but you'll suck it up and do it!

    Yeah it was AQA - what did you get?
    I don't even think that having to sit them at the end of the year is that bad, history is easy - and for AQA they don't as the current year 11s here they are doing their first one in May.

    If you check my coursework list I have added more. I forgot some.
    It's ridiculous.
    I know it is really ridiculous
    But hopefully the reward at the end will be successful

    The exam I did was out of 120 O.O

    You get your exam scripts back?!?!

    Like I said the year 10 in my school aren't doing it all in year 11 - their first exam is in a month.
    It's not overlapping at all really - they stop where each starts - history isn't hard. You need to know a few facts and need to be able to critically think. Not hard at GCSE>

    You english people and your resists, jeez it's like they want EVERYONE to pass - wether it takes 2 or 23 tries. You guys have it easy. We get one prelim in October ( which don't count for at all) and the final exams in April-June - no retakes whatsoever.

    The current government are scrapping re-sits though. I've done no re-sits at all, not everyone does it. I think people deserve chances however, at GCSE level anyway.

    Dude it's not about the passing which pissed everyone off, they upped the grade boundary by 15 for everything on a hard paper - a lot of teachers saying it was the hardest paper in a long time too. The boundaries was upped because of external pressure to do so. I still got a high B but if the boundary hadn't moved I would have had a high A if not an A*. To actually do the resit though I have had to effectively redo the entire course - because the GCSE was done, so no I didn't get a resit - I resat the course. It was unfair as it made an A* unattainable for people who should have got one - 2 people out of 300 people got one at my school - 40 people got one the year before.

    Before you criticise us I want to see your June 2012 GCSE English Language A*.

    Our school offers 1 resit for some subjects - most you don't get to do. The only reason I get to do science ones and English ones is because we do language a year in advance, we do ISAs very early and there are 3 papers you can do each year. And the geography one allows 1 resit.
