    A lot of my friends say that, end up with A's and still say they didn't do well. Which pisses me off tbh
    trust me, when i say i didn't do good, i don't get good.

    You still got paper 2 to make up for it. Just prepare yourself mentally.

    Does anyone know the grade boundaries for Edexcel iGCSE English Language Option A?
    Both papers combined are out of 100.

    Personally I need a B grade which I believe is around 55 marks.

    What are you aiming for?

    Hi, everyone

    I personally found the unseen reading quite difficult (not the text itself, but the questions rather), and I felt like I didn't really say thaaaat much for the long question.
    And omg, I was kind of "glad" when I saw the narwhal text: it was the one I prepared for the most (which isn't saying much, to be honest, but you get my point). I had a feeling that it would come up (feminine intuition????? hahahaha), because of random jokes I had with a friend who's totally obsessed with narwhals, so for some reason I was all like "I'm SURE this text will come up"... it's stupid, I know. And since I really hated that text, I trusted a bit my gut instinct and revised it a bit. So yay. Moreover, the question was the same as the practice one we had done in class (thank you, Paul, I owe you one).

    Whereas for once I think I was ok in the reading, I think I wasn't that good in the writing (last year's paper was soooo much easier...). I mean, I couldn't think of an "important decision" in my life, like... wtf? I tried to get by with something, but not sure if it was any good. The letter question I also found "hard" because of timing.

    Though I'm being a pessimist with the exam, I'm pretty sure I got a B at least, but the thing is that I really can't afford to get less than an A in English...

    You can't be certain, but the most unlikely ones are:
    • Disabled (January 2013)
    • Out, Out (June 2012)
    • Refugee Blues (January 2012)
    • Veronica (June 2011)
