    All my friends are off tomorrow and Thursday so they can go home to bed, I'm so tired I can even concentrate on revision. They picked pretty good case studies for unit 1 so hopefully they will be as nice this time

    English went pretty good. The functional writing topic was lovely, very nice to write about. Analysing non-fiction was alright, but I felt like I just spent the entire time talking about how it was humourous :P I also barely got anything written on sentence structure, since our invigilator started 5 minutes early and I forgot about that and thought I still had 5 minutes left :| I wrote about 2 1/4 pages for Section A and around 3 pages for Section B. My writing gets pretty small, especially when I'm rushing. I didn't think I wrote enough for my Paper 1 in January and I still did alright in it.

    RE was alright. I didn't really like the marriage and divorce questions and the religious diversity questions on Section B were a little weird. I'm confident though (please god).

    That R.E paper went okay - but they kept asking to agree/disagree for 10 markers and it was hard to implement bible verses when it's asking for your opinion.
    I thought that too. I found it hard to implement in Bible verses and only got a few in there.

    It could've gone much worse, so I'm glad. I actually managed to answer all the questions. In all my internal exams in the past I've never been able to finish the paper. So that was nice. (I think the adrenaline helped)
    (also no more RE ever again oh thank jesus)

    I was buzzing about the religous diversity question i learnt the mark scheme answers for it and the care for environment questions were similar but i got the animal rights issues wrong lol thought it was badly worded but sure its only 2 marks!

    I got the animal rights question wrong too. I didn't understand what they were asking for until I checked a past mark scheme
