    Pleased with it. My teacher predicted me an A*, and she assumed I'd be gutted I didn't get it, but I really don't care, I knew I'd never get an A*, and as soon as I came out of the exam hall I knew I hadn't got it, so it wasn't like it was a letdown.
    I was, however, over the moon at my maths result XD

    My schools to poor to allow any A* students to have an early entry in English, just maths. Pathetic.

    Do you have any advice for anyone looking to get an A*?

    Thank you
    Well done to you too (and everyone else), of course.
    I'd probably suggest:

    Making sure you get high coursework marks
    Know your literary devices (and their effects) inside out for poetry and media terms for paper 1.
    It's usually easier to get more marks if you write to persuade on paper 1 and to describe on paper 2.
    Make sure you answer always relates to the question (it's so easy to go off on a tangent)
    Use good grammar/vocabulary.
    Have a bit of flair/originality of ideas and include a bit of your opinion.
    Your essay will need to flow.


    I remember lots of people not liking one of the paper 1 questions, something about talking about fact and opinion. They were hardly any facts in one of the pieces - if it isn't there, talk about why it isn't.

    How do you find out you're in the top 15, out of interest?
    I'm just wondering because in my maths I got one mark off 100% and I'm curious as to how many other people got it :p:
