    Yeah, I dossed about in year 10. So ended up with getting about an A average for my coursework and a B in speaking and listening (which is bound to improve). Is it still possible for me to gain an A*? It seems like I will have to score in the high 90s to even have a shot which worries me.

    Also, in RE I scored 84% for one module which is worth 50% of our grade. Is RE hard? Im doing the catholic course and want an A*, can I still make the grade?

    Who cares about R.E? I dropped it at GCSE as it was such a pointless subject. English language is important though.

    The year 11 RE module is piss if it's the one I did, it's just a load of ethical issues you need to know the arguments for/against it. Even easier than year 10.

    I got an A in Eng Lang coursework and an A* overally (S+L an A as far as I remember). I was on WJEC though, so the exam is 70% of everything.

    I got 88% in the first year of RE and 90% in the second, missed it by 2%. It's not hard to do well but i'd say you'll have to really focus to make sure you know everything pretty well to manage 96% worth. The second year stuff seemed more interesting/easier to blag though.

    Don't worry though, an A or an A* won't make much difference in the end if it's one or the other.

    Don't worry RE is piss easy, most people in my year last year got A's and A*'s with the AQA course.

    Don't worry- just have fun. I got an A in RE by hiding in the toilets all year, I'd imagine if you showed up to lessons- you're probably onto an A*.

    Save all of the stressing over grade boundaries for A-level.

    No, you're going to have to redo everything from year 7 again.

    Sucks to be you.

    The Catholic version of RE is piss easy, I think practically everyone in the top half of my year managed an A or A* in it. Don't worry.

    Is there no way you can redo the English speaking/listening? Our teacher who made everyone that got less than their target grade redo it.
    The Catholic version of RE is easy. RE is easy generally, so that shouldn't be too hard, you seem to be doing well.

    Was it because you just couldn't be asked to go to lessons? =P

      True, it's essentially a written form of the TSR Religion forums. :yep:

      If you had Ds from Year 10 then that's something to be concerned about.

      Only on TSR will you see people complaining about getting As.

      Funny how the teachers don't actually report it =P (although it is saved on the database - but no one realises LOL)

      I always just go into the toilets - force myself to vomit in the sink, which leaves a lot of vomit, and then I just wait in there... reason for the vomiting is in case a teacher or someone knocks and asks why have I been in there so long and not in lessons, I could just say I'm feeling sick XD
