    I got 59 in my last mock as well!!!!! I found the question about thoughts and feelings difficult. Also the question about writing to a newspaper was awful; mind completely went blank. Praying that I get an A, 2nd highest priority for me after History.
    Oh jesus I forgot about that horrific thoughts and feelings one... I think we all found it so difficult because the majority of us basically don't get taught anything for English Language which is pretty dumb when it's a compulsory subject for most workplaces
    Tbh, I hated all of the creative writing pieces in general... and same, I couldn't think of anything to write :/
    Are you doing English next year or is it just one that you really care about?

    and it's so weird that we both got 59

    Aha yeah I'm glad everyone else found it hard. I'm not doing it next year but I want to be a lawyer so it is very important aha! Plus getting an A in English Language shows you're a very good native speaker.

    For similar reasons I guess - want to do medicine so it would be embarrassing if I did terribly in English Language but then claim to be 'great at speaking to patients'

    ahaha yeah, suppose you're worried about the science GB's? I did AQA for that; B2 was okay, C2 was brilliant and P2 was the hardest exam I did aha.

    Did AQA as well For bio, I found B1 the hardest tbh and yeah C2 was great - annoyed that I messed up the titration experiment for C3 though so hopefully the examiner doesn't knock off too many marks for that :/ Ah yeah P2 and P3 were equally bad for me - I had no idea what lots of the questions even wanted; AQA were being such d*cks with the wording
    For me, my hardest exam was my French listening (AQA iGCSE) and I'm praying that less people from all those private schools did it this year because they make the boundaries insanely high

    GCSE English Language has nothing to do with how well you speak to patients

    btw has anyone had any results day dreams? because I've had two already...
    This is a tad late. But yes, I dreamt that I received a bunch of Cs, Fs and Es. Nothing wrong with a C, although it is lower than what I get normally! Could the dream have been prophetic? I really hope not. All will be revealed soon!

    What did you guys think of the Edexcel English Language paper? The first section of the OMOM paper was worded horrendously, loads of people wrote about context!!
    It was worded horribly. I think I read it about 10 times before I started writing. I'm quite worried because of that.

    I like the unwritten rule of this thread; I come in with the RD countdown, ten seconds later you do the same for the GB day.

    Physics was just the worst! I found B2, P2, and P3 really hard as well.

    Quick question for anyone who took the AQA Eng Lang paper; do you think the GB will be lowered? I think they should be as it was a harder exam than last years. Really need an A in English Language.
    Hope so! I'm not that good at English (straight Bs with effort). I really want an A though
