hey,
im doing my language next Tuesday.

I am a little nervous but if u do bad, remember you have coursework to fall back on and you can always retake next year.

I think I am most nervous about the timings for each one. 12 mins for questions 1,2,3 and 15 for question 4, question 5 is 25mins and question 6, 35 mins with 15mins leeway and a bit at the end, its all confusing.

Im also a bit nervous for question 2, can really understand how to link the picture to the text and things.

Have you got any tips?

Good Luck

You guys will all be fine and have nothing to worry about!
I recommend doing past papers as practise for the real thing, that will only allow you to get into the hang of the question pattern and timings

It's difficult because you need to learn to write quickly within the timings, and in order to attempt all the questions you NEED to move on as soon as the timings are up (maybe just finish your sentence first But NOT your paragraph) If you're aiming for the A/A* you need to attempt all questions. Also don't forget that you're coursework contributes to your final grade, so you need to take that into account when doing the exam. So for example if you got a B on your CW, but want an A for your GCSE, you need to make up for that on the exam.

Bottom line: my main tips are timing and learning the pattern of the sentences. Once you get the hang of that, then you can start exploring the Mark scheme in detail which i can help you with!

Again- you have nothing to worry about, and will do really well in the end

That's what our teacher has told us but we haven't done much practise on language because we also had literature to do so have been concentrating on that.
We have a 5 hour revision day Monday so hopefully it will clear things up more.

Thanks for your advice

I'm doing the English exam Tuesday.. Aha and I'm nervous! I think just stick to timings as much as possible, read through all the sources and questions first & annotate them. Also, make plans for question 5&6 so you don't run out of things to write! Good Luck! X
