    I cannot stop worrying constantly about my speaking and listening, the reason for this is due to the fact that i have trouble answering questions on the spot, we got hardly any preparation we were just told to write a debate and the only way we practiced this is in groups, that doesn't help! And also last year i got a D grade on my speaking and listening, this is 20% of my GCSE will it effect my overall grade? And if i do good in the 80% willi still pass? i have no trouble of the rest of english.

    Are we talking about English Language Speaking and Listening? As far as I was aware, Speaking and Listening has absolutely no impact on your final grade. When I got my results, it was completely seperate. Also, it was a number rather than a grade.

    In terms of "doing badly," however, I wouldn't worry. I'm awful at public speaking, completely messed up one of the tasks and thought I'd done terrible and still got the highest mark possible. In fact, I don't know anyone in my class who didn't. As Speaking and Listening is something we do automatically, it's prettt hard to be bad at it.

    Just listen when someone else is speaking, don't interrupt and make sure you make regular contributions.
