    I did my English Lit last year - got an A, but im dreading Eng Lang since it just doesnt sink in at all. Although I did manage to scrape an A in my mock (thank you insanely low grade boundaries!)
    Idk how CIE Eng Lit works since I did AQA but how did your mock go?
    I tend to usually ask my teachers to print out past papers for me to save me money and time, so have you tried that?

    I agree, English Language doesn't sink in much for me too! Ah that's good, well done on your A! Unfortunately with CIE the grade boundaries are really high I think a C starts at about 55%, a B starts at 68%, an A starts at 78% or 80% and an A* starts at 90% or 92%

    My mock for English Lit went well, I got an A and was a few marks off an A* For English Language I got a C though (2 marks away from a B) so I'm hoping I can get a B, or even an A, in the real exam.

    I might email my teacher and ask for past papers but she's disorganised and often loses emails so I'm not sure if I'll have much luck with that

    Lemon juice + (a teeny bit of) ginger + honey + hot water = awesome and refreshing remedy I chug these in overwhelming amounts when I'm ill.

    Get better soon!
    I may have to try that, thanks

    I managed to get 94% in my grade 5 music theory! The fact that I worked so hard and that it has finally paid off has finally given me the motivation boost I needed, because I've proved to myself that I can work hard and that it does pay off.

    It's okay, we've got time still.
    That said, I've set myself low targets for every day and have yet to complete any of them... :mad:
    Onwards to productivity! :P

If anybody's done it, could you tell me how you found it +any tips and what the main things I need to revise are?

    Yeah, she is a good teacher but she is quite disorganised when it comes to emails so I'll see if she responds and if not I'll ask her after the holidays

    I'm doing English Lit, Psychology, Politics and Sociology for A Levels, what about you?
