english gcse coursework watch

    • Thread Starter

    i feel as though my school undermarks our internal aqa coursework as only 4 people had gotten an A* in the coursework from the previous year 11s.
    Either all our school's english teachers are rubbish or they are harsh markers
    By the way there are over 200 students!In each year.This means that only 2%!(aprox) got an A*.Is english language and literature that hard as my teacher makes out?(i hope not)

    It may be just that the teachers haven't been equipping you with the right skills for controlled assessments therefore the people who do well in them are those who do extra work. I didnt find english language coursework hard but i got 74/80 but i did worse in lit and got 33/40. I feel lit is more about making stuff out of nothing so finding at least three interpretations of one word. I did get an A on Lit in the end so i didn't do too badly. Also, the teachers can't be harsh markers which could lead to only 4 people getting A*s in coursework as coursework is moderated so if the moderators feel people were marked harshly from a random sample they will increase everybody's marks by a certain number
