    The only thing I'm worried about is the fact that I'm not worried. I've got a high A* for coursework but if I get like 0 on the exam what would I get overall?

    Same. I'm worried that I won't finish both essays in time and that they won't be of good quality.

    Forget that, I'm scared I won't even write one good paragraph
    Timings aren't really an issue for me as when planned well I can normally finish with 5/10mins spare (in class).

    The root of all my problems is a lack of ideas - I always get stumped by the questions and spend 10mins trying to figure out my first point (eeek). Only then do I struggle with timings.

    Crossing everything for a simple character questions eg. how is so and so presented... - not anything specific like how is so and so presented as selfish

    Seriously if AQA mess me over with their devilish questions i will put my head on the desk and realise how much of a mess my life is.. Help me with the lit exam pm me with your paragraph structures
    We were taught to do our paragraphs PQA - point quote analysis.
    Eg. How is so and so presented?

    So and so is presented as POINT. This is shown through the FEATURE (eg. Description, stage direction) 'QUOTE '. ANALYSIS (remember try and write a lot about just one quote)

    For AIC include 'Priestely wanted to present so and so like this in order to...' (So you can get marks for priestleys intention)

    For OMAM link to context throughout! 'This reflects society in 1930s America as....'

    5. (Humblebrag alert) I've literally never not got full marks in an English exam - but I am always SOOO nervous for them. This is the real deal. If something comes up that I'm not confident on I'm ****ed. I love English, my entire future is based around it, and I am shaking so badly, oh my God... Yes, I'm freaked!

    I'm worried but not scared, so maybe 4/10
    Some themes I'm very prepared for, but some I really am not. I hate the passage analysis too.

    Your prediction was right, Lennie's death did come up in the paper! How'd you guess that it would be him?

    It is the well awaited and dreaded GCSE English Literature exam tomorrow. How confident do you guys feel about it on a scale of 1-10? Do you think you will do good or are you nervous that you may mess up.

    I'm mostly worried about timing and essay structure and getting a good grade. What about you?

    By the way, good luck to everyone taking this exam!
    we already did it ....?!!!
