Not sure whether people think this is a good/bad idea.
Just thought that, considering Re-sits (and AS exams!) are extremely close, and the actual A2 exams aren't that far off either, people might find a thread useful, where questions can be asked regarding any of the papers.

At the end of the day, even if you're not resitting any exams, Unit 6 is synoptic, therefore any of it could come in handy.

I don't think it's a case of people not liking it, I think it's more to do with English language being considerably less popular than Lit or Lang/Lit.

I wish my school used the AQA exam board, instead we use the WJEC exam board. I don't like it, plus the fact my useless teacher gives us papers from AQA and says it's OK because they are exactly the same...

Hey there,

Don't delete the thread! I'm an AS English Language student. Our sixth form is using specification B. I already have an AS in English Language (c) but am resitting all the modules again and will go onto A2 in September.

I've sat module one twice. First time I got an E and the 2nd time I got a C. I would love an A or even a B! Does anyone know what the criteria is for getting the high marks?
I got a B first time on module 2. I am resitting in a weeks time. I am hoping to get an A if I'm lucky. Oh and the coursework last time I submitted was a low C, now it's a low B. Overall it's looking good!

Any help would be must greatful : D

You are doing AQA English Language (B)

Spec includes:
Introduction ot the study of Language
(grouping and analysing 8 texts, then deeply anaylising two texts)

Language and Social Context
(choosing to analyse two out of three texts based on different topics e.g language and power asking a question about a doctor and patient, how is language represented)

Hey!

I have just started English Language (AQA spec A) this year. I am ... bitterly dissapointed with it. I don't know whether this is due to the subject or to my teacher, who although is clearly well educated, and a nice guy, REALLY can't teach, and in all the time I have been here, I don't think I have actually learnt and understood ANYTHING! And it isn't just me; everyone else in the class feels the same.

So I need to get my self study aawwwnnn, as I need A grades. Can anyone reccomend any good revision websites, study guides, eductational shows, important research topics, etc. etc., as basically I have to resort to teaching myself all of this. I need an A.

Thank you to anyone who replies!

Dani
