    Did gcses last year and wrote the most hillarious rubbish controlled assesments you can think of which were so cheesy but I still managed to get an A star.

    In my english CA for an Inspector Calls, I decided to be witty and make up a quote about society and made up a name of who said it.

    I remember vividly I wrote: To conclude in the words of socialist sociologist Margetha Libossni, "we are one, but the moment we are split we are no longer one". I can't actually believe I wrote that BS. I also made up the fake italian name to make myself sound more legit and they actually believed it. To the aqa examiner who probably thought it was an amazing piece of work due to the fake rubbish I wrote thanks for the A star.

    Had to get this off my chest

    Just because one or two examiners are like that not all are.

    Also, for an A* I'm sure you've done better analysis than you think!

    I wrote about bs and even called the birling family "oligarchs" which isn't even a term that describes them properly. Analysis was very little, but all I mainly did was give the examiner a massive history lesson in the intro and first paragraph but i dont think it was a star worthy :P

    I did that task! I'm in Year 11 however; I presume you're in the year above, doing A-levels? 'An Inspector Calls' is the play we've studied for the past two years.

    Just be thankful that you were able to achieve an A* without perhaps being fully confident of being able to do so
