    Just do the exam as you don't really have to do much revision so it won't really affect your other subjects. English lit grades are often somewhat random so you might surprise yourself! If you really don't want to do it I would speak to your school about not entering you so you don't have the grade on your certificates. Hope this helped

    Hello, i have done past papers and as a /a* student i have been surprised in a very bad way and i have very high expectations of myself and i feel as if English lit will spoil my results. I talked to my teacher and he said it is part of the school policy and that will have to take it but i shouldn't be forced to do something i don't want to

    I understand the ideas but when i am expected to write them it just disappears - usually in english i get a*'s and a's (controlled assessments) but in one controlled assessment for English lit which is 25% i did sooooooo bad and got a d which is going to be very hard for me to raise to an a

    To OP.
    Before my English Language exam in November, I did maybe 10 minutes of revision. Walked out with 'A'.
