    Lol, Did i get your attention if so Please provide me with an intelligent answer.
    As many of you know, GCSE's are literally around the corner and this is the time to revise your socks off.
    Mock results:
    Maths unit 1 - A*
    Maths Unit 2- A*
    Maths unit 3- A*
    English Literature-?
    English Language-?
    Biology unit 2 - B
    Chemistry unit 2 - ?
    Physics Unit 2- A*
    French Reading- A*
    French Listening - E
    French Writing - B
    French Speaking - B
    R.E 1-A*
    R.E 2-A
    D.T- B

    Basically those were my mock results (ikr) but the main problem why I brought you here is for my English.
    In my Controlled Assessments I have either got a High B or a Low A due to the type of marks i was getting, however I was wondering if I could still come out with an A overall if i got An A or A*?
    I would like an A in English, but my teacher still has not given me back our marks from our last mock for 9 WEEKS! (ikr pretty **itty if you ask me)?


    Secondly, I got A solid b in my writing, but a low b in my speaking, could I still get an A if both my reading and listening were A/A*?

    Finally, Any tips on revision for English and French?
    I'm alright with D.T and everything but I really need tips.
    If anyone can also give me guidelines as to what grades you think I should get despite the fact you don't know me, Leave a reply.
    Much Obliged.

    french is mainly based on how much vocabs u know. I'm sure all modern languages r like that. I think that doing past papers would be the best, since they tend to use similar vocabs in each year. If u get any wrong, just look back and use dictionaries to understand what the question wanted.
    I know I'm giving u really basic answers but it helps in my revision

    GOOD LUCK ON YOUR EXAMS!

    btw ur mock exam results r great!!!

    For english and french just do past papers and you should be fine. Also for english literature you can use YouTube videos as they give a detailed analysis of the poems.

    As far as English is concerned, of course you'll be able to get an A !! I'm not sure about an A*, but you never know because things can get moderated etc and you may end up with a higher grade than anticipated, plus coursework is a small percentage ( at least for WJEC it is ) just make sure you practise timed past papers and you'll be all set! I came out with 98/100 on my coursework but a lot of people I know got A's and are still aiming for that high grade, don't let coursework hold you back because you can still get the grades you want.
    As for French, we are in the same boat in terms of not knowing if we can get the grades we want. I came out with a B and and an A* in speaking and B and an A (high B's but still) and am starting to worry because even if I get an A* in both reading and listening I will be 4 UMS off an a* which is really upsetting. You can get an A, providing you get A/A* !! Just learn vocab, vocab, vocab. That's all it's about now. Try quizlet to help you memorise words. Good luck!
