    It was ok i think. I didn't really have too many points to make about Eva. I basically just blabbed on about vulnerability, responsibility, power and social classes. How did you find it?

    It was okay. Can't remember anything specific but I guess that means I didn't find it awful. English is definitely not my favourite subject though. I prefer maths and science and French, basically I prefer almost anything. :P

I love history as well I want to study it in the future etc. My chances of that is messed up now though.. What did you do for the coursework if you can remember?

    I think we did trench life in WW1 for the first piece of coursework and air warfare for the second... What about you?
    I hate history... I used to really like it, but I didn't have a good teacher at GCSE so we were still learning content the week before the exam and he just made me stressed!! I can't deal with so many words either, just can't remember them- much prefer numbers! :P

    Yeah I did that for cousework as well! I thought some of the sources were awful :/ what makes you say you messed up paper 2? Did you just not get the questions or forgot?
    And ahh I'm more the opposite I'm a factual person that can learn a lot of facts but with stuff like sciences.. I struggle like mad.. For some reason I'm just naturally better at remembering stuff from the past :P

    Well I went into paper 1 thinking I didn't know anything, but it turns out I knew more than I thought...I went into paper 2 also thinking I didn't know anything but hoping it would like paper 1...I opened it and looked at the first topic and that was fine - I thought I knew more than I realised! But then I looked at the other 2 topics and I knew nothing, so yeah... I doubt I got even close to 40 on the second 2 topics! I also misinterpreted the last 12 mark question and wrote the essay on the wrong topic so yeah... :/ haha I always remember the things I don't need to know!! xD science just makes sense, whereas with some history, particularly Stalin, it was just 'people were rounded up and shot' repeated over and over!

    Ahhh at least your papers went a lot better than mine tbh- not forgetting though we do have our coursework grade... Not that it'll affect my grade as much but ah well.. You know these articles about lower grade boundaries do you think it's just for English, maths and science or Do you think other subjects will be considered? I'm hopin history is :/

    I think it'll be most subjects, mainly academic ones I guess as they'll probably have been most affected, but I don't think it'll just be English, Maths and Science

    Ahh good my predictions is ones that include a lot of essay writing. E.g.history, geography etc. Because English exams are getting marked harsher every year and subjects like Spanish listening papers etc. Wouldn't be as big of a problem... I want to see grade boundaries asap though :/
