    2 days left until my AQA exam and my teacher is still scrutinizing my essays like the beginning of the year, along with the fact that I panic over time conditions. Anyone else feel like they're screwed?

    Definitely haha - everybody seems to struggle with Literature though, so the grade boundaries are usually really low and that's what I'm taking my comfort in! I also have a tendency to panic with the time, but I've found that knowing exactly how long I'm going to spend on what before an exam and giving myself 5-10 spare minutes really helps to calm me down. Which books are you doing?

    I'm worried about the essay questions they will give us, some can be god's gift but others can be horrible.. and I can't wait to never have to think about Romeo and Juliet ever again

    I'm doing An Inspector Calls and Of Mice and Men, and my revision is going pretty badly; considering I haven't even fully re-read the books yet. I've seen some sample Band 5 and Band 6 answers and I just worry I will not be able to produce work of that quality in the given time. Just hoping that the lord favors me in this time of need.

    I'm really worried as well As long as you do well in English Language. That's the only grade universities care about and not english literature which is not that important. If you can get a B in english language and a C in english literature then it'll be fine!!

    I'm doing Of Mice and Men and The Crucible. I haven't re-read them yet either but I have notes on them both and feel like I understand the books; I'm listening to the audiobook for The Crucible and praying for easy questions (if the question is on the theme of friendship for Of Mice and Men I might cry of happiness; hoping for a good theme question for The Crucible because character questions make me cry of sadness :L)

    I'm doing AIC and people are saying most likely Sheila for the character question as she hasn't come up for the longest.

    I'm really worried about this, Ive done hardly any revision and I don't think I'll be able to produce quality work let alone finish in the time. I'm also doing TKAM

    Can someone please help me and like state the basic points and qoutes for Sheila in AIC|??|?
