    LITERALLY ME HAHA! Im hoping its a nice wee brief short poem but thats just wishful thinking! For unseen i think the secret is to question everything and be really deep and philosophical.. LOL !
    lmao too true, just have to link it to some deeper meaning like racism or lost love or something

    If anyone wants any help on An Inspector Calls, look up Mr Salles Teaches English or Mr Bruff on youtube
    They have some fab videos, and Mr Bruff has some on unseen poetry too !!

    Was it bad? I did it last year and it was absolutely horrific tbh
    Yes, it was hard. Probably worse than the hardest past paper because I did all of them and got 80+ on them. Honestly - when you sit and do past papers you have more freedom to think and analyze graphs/triangles etc where as when you're in your GCSE doing the actual thing trying to figure out which method to use or find X in a circle theorem you just can't think creatively to answer the question, too much pressure.

    lets talk about that t4 paper:

    wtf
    The T4 exam I did in January was horrible, I left out about 6 questions it was that bad! How does everyone else feel about the paper? Maths grade boundaries are normally pretty low anyway because they scale the results depending on how people perform

    I'm doing unit 2 History too and honestly I haven't did any revision the past couple of weeks for it because I've been to busy focusing on other subjects that I've had exams for. I'm planning on doing a good bit this weekend, I'm somehow under the impression it won't take long to learn because I did all my notes earlier this year but that could just be my mind lying to myself lol
    Same here, i'm planning on learning a topic a day after the unit 1 exam so I'm not completely leaving everything until the last minute!

    Does anybody think they could ask a question solely on superstition for Blood Brothers? They have never explicitly asked for it in a question and in 2012 they asked how social class caused the split between the 2 boys so I was thinking they might ask something similar for superstition. Also, is anybody else doing the Love & Death poetry anthology? It seems as if barely anyone outside of my class does it.

    Ah that's great thankyou!! So looks like Gerald or Sheila might be a possibility for character?? That's not too bad but I suppose no way of really prediciting what theme,,, maybe Lies or Social class do you think??

    No worries! Yes I was thinking either one of them! I know, predicting theme is tough tbh
    If it was social class I'd be happy enough! Or even age differences that'd be decent

    My teacher said it's best to compare it with either Auguries of Innocence, or Composed Upon Westminster Bridge
