    What marks you get in the CA's? (just so I get an idea of how far I'm off A)
    English Creative Writing 1?
    Creative writing 2?
    Spoken Language Study?
    Extended study/writing?

    And the speaking/listening?

    Sadly I don't know exactly, but I got one of maximum mark of the speaking and listening...

    Everyone at my school was in the 40s and 50s! With about 4 -5 in the 60s. I did better than expected! I got 57 so hopefully when comparing that to the previous grade boundaries that will be an A! My teacher has spoken to me about trying to push that up to an A* by retaking some of the controlled assessments but I think I'm happy with an A! Well done everyone else and for those who didn't get what they wanted, they have completely slated us this year! And it's so annoying how we can't find out the exact grade boundaries

    My school generally did quite badly, I did manage to get 60 marks though which according to last years boundaries is an A! My teacher wants me to resit to get the A* but if you resit this exam they'll take your resit grade and not your better one. That's way too much pressure and I'm happy with an A so definitely not going to do it. I can't imagine how if feel if I did worse in the resit and then that's the grade they took forward! :s
