    I have no idea the marks I got for speaking and listening, but I got a C+, B+ and A- (yes they aren't that good), but we did another one which I don't know what I got. I just don't want it to bring my coursework grade down. We never get told marks for our coursework and stuff, only grades, but I definitely got an A* for written coursework.

    So it 40% or 20% on OCR Language?! Argh *looks confuzzled* I hope it's 40%, I don't want to even discuss the failing of the actual exams in Language! Is anybody else worried, by the way, that the examiner may give you crap spelling and punctuation marks because they can't read your writing? My usual writing is quite nice and neat, but in exams it becomes almost unreadable. Will this mean I get crap punctuation and spelling marks? Eek

    OCR Language is 20% speaking and 20% for writing = 40% total. Then paper 1 = 30% and Paper 2 = 30%.

    Yes, me too. I am usually a very good speller and my writing is tidy. However, in exams it is so rushed and I often can't even read it myself (thinking about my History exam now ). I hope it will be okay.

    Well, I think the writing should be ok, unless it truly is terrible.
