    Just done AQA Eng 2.

    Qu 1 went brilliantly....answered well, good length (about 4 pages).

    But in Qu 4 (explain ambitions and explain how to acheive them), I wrote a whole 4 pages on just my ambitions and no how to achieve them!!

    Do you think this is detremental for the mark or just a little bad? The mark of 27 is 9 for good English and 18 for content....

    I can't believe I forgot...I wrote it really well, just forgot the second bit. I feel so stupid...

    I was predicted A* for this....paper 1 went brill, coursework is 100% and paper 2 went as above. What do you think?

    i'm sure u will be alrite, if u explained your ambitions brillaintly which you probably did considering your predicted A* im sure they wont really mark you down, and if your poetry question went well and your coursework is good your be fine. section b is only 15%.

    Do you know how those questions are marked though? Like do they mark it out of 27, then halve it because you've not completed the question?
