    My worst subject was English Lit, in the end I got a C in it. I'm awesome with spelling and grammar, but when it comes to books and poetry...I'm useless!

    I spent too long on the first 3 shorter questions, I only had 30 mins to answer the last 2 questions, I did finish (just). I'm surprised I didn't do worse than that, thanks god for coursework lol

    I just totally messed up English lit, it was never going to be my strongest subject but I could have got an A. I ended up one mark off and didn't get it remarked, which especially given all the problems with the grade boundaries last summer was just stupid! Oh well, it's done now...

    the main reason for my bad grade in Geography was the fact when it came to the exam my mind just went blank.

    Probably Graphic Design. I'd never been a big fan of DT and choose Graphic Design because I wasn't keen on practical workshop sessions. However I soon realised that you need to have a good ability to draw and design objects, which I completely lack.

    I enjoyed the lessons and the project work, but sadly the examiners didn't appreciate my atrocious artistic abilities and even worse knowledge of how products are designed.

    Welsh... After learning it for 13 years I still haven't been able to grasp it beyond basics. Our friends labelled the exam for it as 'Doomsday', as we knew that we weren't prepared. I don't think I've failed, though; probably have a B overall, because I did really well in the assessments (I don't know how I got by without revising lol).
    I also think I failed the English Lit exam this year. I hate Lord of the Flies, but love Blood Brothers, and was hrrified when the question were easier for LOTF and not BB, so I think my shock really put me off in that one, and again will probably average an A or B overall.

    MATHS I think, which really sucks because if I fail I have to retake. Also art, but I guess that won't matter as much. Ah, who am I kidding? EVERY SINGLE SUBJECT. *WEEPS*

    I was pretty sure it would be geography - I had a panic attack in the first exam and had to be pulled out for a while. But somehow I managed to get an A, and my worst was Latin - I got a B, surprisingly. I had As and A*s all year in my mocks, and we did one every two weeks, so it's disappointing that I got a B.

    Design and Technology: Resistant Materials. I got a D with 231 UMS points so was 9 UMS off a C. I actually got a A on my exam but my coursework was rubbish at E.
