    My friend got 120/120 UMS in our LitB1 Aspects of Narrative exam last Jan whereas I did pretty bad. She's really stressing out though because she's worried that she won't do well next year in A2, and that's got me worried too now. How hard is A2 English Lit compared to AS? How difficult would it be for my friend who is excellent at Lit?

    I'm going AQA LITB3/4 this year as an A2 student. AS, in terms of mark schemes and grade boundaries is easier. Last year it only took 47/84 to get 90 UMS/ A; 62/84 to get 120. For the LITB3 exam you need to get, as far as I know 52/80 for an A.

    Depending on what books you're covering (I am covering the Gothic: Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights and Dr Faustus), I definitely think A2 is more interesting. Your coursework as well is more difficult. You have to go away and read books yourselves and pick a topic to write about.

    If you have any questions please ask. I am a little anxious about the exam, but I've made plenty of revision notes and plan to get some practice papers done over the next 9 weeks until my exam.

    Btw, My mate also got 120 in the B1 exam. He has a natural ability for English. I don't know if that is a similar situation to your lady friend. Nevertheless, I got better marks in the coursework than he did! In that sense, working hard for it won't stop you doing well. I've got plenty of mates who got As because they put the work in.
