    I went from an E a week before my exam to an A for English Lit (still not the best but honestly i wasnt really bothered at gcses lol)
    Really do get some sleep, but just trying reviewing over some material before sleeping, dont stress too much
    Oh and make sure you get basic things right; I spelt Priestley wrong the entire exam :facepalm:
    Pretty sure I pissed my examiner off lmao
    Dont worry! You'll all do amazingly I promise

    i have RE tomorrow, Phy 3 on wednesday and Lit 2 on friday. tbh the only exam im going to enjoy is RE. i've given up on lit and physics cos theyre so hard and uninteresting, plus im not going to carry it on at A levels so there's really not a problem for me if i fail

    In my coursework I winged it and got two A's and I'm currently wishing I had put in the effort with them to relive some of the exam pressure. Does anyone know what I need to get in the exams tomorrow (at least) to be able to get an A/A* overall? I'm predicted an A* but considering my coursework let me down and I'm really not prepared for the exam at all, I'm fully aware that I'm very unlikely to get that. So yeah anyone know what grade I would need to get in the exam to be able to get an A overall?

    And I thought it was just me freaking out about the English Lit exam. Quite literally freaking out.

    I need a B in both English exams to do the subjects I want to do at Sixth form. In my last mock I got a D in English. I really hope Curley's wife comes up and the question "how does Hill present Horror in the WIB".

    what marks exactly did you get for your coursework? I know that an A* is usually around 80% or something.

    i got C's in my coursework, so i'm basically relying on the written exams, and to be frankly honest i doubt i'll get any good on these either - i'm just not one of those people that can think "outside of the box" for these literature based things. Like if the guys said it, then he's said it - like my brain legit whispers to me in class when everyone is proper analysing the book and i'm there like "m8 its not that deep, its fiction anyways" -.-

    "Only GCSEs" - tbf, GCSEs are a big deal, for me especially considering that I need at least all A's as I want to do dentistry. Obviously, A Levels are more important but that doesn't mean that GCSEs are not as important.

    Anyways, back on topic - for the WJEC students, how many quotes should I be using in the essay question to achieve about 18 marks out of 20?
