Ok, today I did my English Lit AQA GCSE. The two things I was doing was AIC and TKAM. Mockingbird was fine but on the AIC question I may have messed up... The question asked "How did Gerald and Sheila's relationship change" however, i read it as Sheila and Eric's relationship and that is what I wrote about for 45 mins! I had no idea what I did until after the exam...

What happens now? Because the work I did on Eric and Sheila was in my eyes very good but I hadn't answered the question! Will I get marks or not?

Did you write about their relationship throughout the play? Because if you did then you probably have covered some of it in your answer even if not directly answering the question. Obviously DON'T take my word for it but you should get marks for it if you've wrote about their relationship but not answering the question will lose you some marks!
I really hope you get a good grade in it tho, try not to worry about it because you have other exams you need to focus on, you can't change it now. Good Luck!!

Oh :0 sorry!! I can see how easily you read that wrong. I'm sorry! If you have referenced to Sheila and Gerald AT ALL, then hopefully should get some marks (that could depend on the examiner). However you might not get that many marks in this exam because answered it wrong. I'm not sure if they would allow marks if your essay on Sheila and Eric was good but don't count on that just incase. If you can get good marks in the other exams then they can average out your grade to something that you'll hopefully be okay with. I'm sorry this happened in your exam!

they cant award marks for that unfortunately because you havent answered the question, but they will try to look for something about sheila and gerald because they follow positive marking policy.

Me and my friend did the exact same thing, but I could've sworn it said Eric and Sheila! I think a lot of people have done the same thing
