    i recently took an igcse english language exam and i was not completely satisfied with my performance mostly because as soon as i had left the exam i realized that one of the questions was " what techniques does the writer use to convey happiness in lines 39-88" and in my answer i wrote about a few things inside those lines but most of my answer was related to the lines outside of 39-88 because did not read the question properly. Btw before the exam i had an A* in my course work which was 50% of my overall grade with the exam being 50% aswell. i think i lost a lot of marks because of this. my other answers where okay and i need a B in this exam to get an A overall. so pls help me? are the gcse examiners particularly harsh? someone pls advise me on this matter of mine thank you i would appreciate it

    You should be fine. That was just one question and it's not as though you'll get 0 for it. Even if you do go down to a C or a B (which is very unlikely), trust me when I say that no one cares about GCSEs. Once you've got A-levels, they're basically irrelevant. Honestly, don't even worry.
