    Which board are you on? :mmm:

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Edexcel, although we've been using some AQA as well for revision as we ran out of past papers. I'm doing A level too but I don't know what exam board - I think Edexcel again but I'm not sure

    Is it bad that my teacher seems to be focusing entirely on English language rather than literature? We've (still) not finished the second novel and only ever had a look at a poetry paper, yet we've done several language mocks over the years. I even think that the language paper is after the literature ones. :confused:

    Struggling with Chem here I actually find Physics alright. Because it's really short too.

    I'm ok with Chen atm as I can picture what's happening but with physics you can't really see the forces and the waves so i just mix them all up-.- is there anything in particular that you struggle with in Chem?

    In my french controlled assessments I got 30/30, 29/30,27/30 and 26/30. Could someone please tell me roughly how many marks I'll need in each paper to get an A overall- I understand it won't be completely accurate because the grade boundaries change, I just need a rough idea of the marks I should be getting.
    Thanks in advance to anyone who replies

    This is the truest thing ever
    but then I don't work out, I make like 5 minute microwave cakes
    I actually had a dream the other day that I was in my English language exam, and i actually wrote out a 20 mark question in my dream, like properly doing it and actually thinking about it, most boring 45 minute dream ever
    😂 This sounds exciting

    For an A roughly you need high B's. And for an A* my guess is two high A's in your listening and reading exam. For writing remember AQA are marking it (I'm presuming you do AQA) and for speaking I defo got one 29/30 and the other is either 29/28 and writing could be 30's but remember AQA mark that.

    It's not been too difficult actually, I've really enjoyed it. :ahee: My teacher is awesome and I'm sure she'll be great at A level. She teaches adults at a night school so she treats us well, but can also give us a figurative kick up the backside if we need it! Small class size helps too, it's a luxury in a state school of 1,500 kids.

    I'm fairly confident about the exams because we've covered enough during the last two years that we can recognise pretty much all of what's in the exam. Real life listening, however... :lolwut: I'm still getting the hang of working out what each word means - double meanings are hard enough in English, never mind in Mandarin!

    Hi there, I'm guessing you are taking iGCSE CIE English Lit?

    I'm also doing songs of ourselves, and my best advice would be do look on YouTube and search the individual poems, and it will come up with some explanation/analysis videos that a very good, I'd pareticulqarly recommend Mr Brooker, he's amazing at coming up with some great analysis and will really drive some important points home
    as well as watching these videos, I've been making mind maps for each poem, discussing the format, rhyme scheme, general plot, and maybe some key analysis as well as writing the themes on the outside of the mindmap
    if you match up themes of poems, say, pike and the cockroach (both about animals) etc, then you can start sorting out in your head what type of question might come up for Question 2.

    I have also studied Merchant of Venice, but not at iGCSE level. Im doing the Tempest however, and I found a great revision guide on Amazon for it, and a quick Amazon search has shown that there are many for the MoV too: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_...ripbooks%2C342

    Id go for York Notes, either GCSE or advanced depending on how well you think you understand the text

    I hope this helps!
