    Hi. Did anyone do the IGCSE AQA foundation Eng Lit paper 2 today? Can't believe I didn't use any quotes. Does anyone know if that means I've lost any chance of getting a C grade now? I used quotes in my other paper on Monday.

    That's not right my teacher said you really are limiting your marks if you don't use quotes down to something like a C or maybe if you're lucky a B (quite hard) but no way A*/A. I don't know about the foundation papers but I guess you would need some quotes or it will be quite hard to get a C.

    Yeah, thanks... I thought it might be a no to. c grade and guess It is. However, this paper was 40% of total marks and I used quotes for my other paoer worth60%, so hoping I did well on that one to make up for it. 🙏

    theres a section (atleast in wjec board) about evidence, this means you provide quotes. without quotes you will get 0 marks in that band and will hinder your possibility of getting a high grade. if your exam board dont allow books into exam then they wont expect exact quote, but quotes that has the same meaning as in the book. speaking from my experience, i didnt learn a lot of quotes but in exam somehow, quotes just keep coming in my head as if i was actually reading the book hahaha

    My teacher was referring to a C in the higher paper without quotes I am not quite sure about the foundation. I guess you still have a good chance of a C getting a C as the paper was only worth 40% and I guess you maybe could get a C on the foundation without quotations like the higher. The exam has been taken and you can't change what you wrote and got so there's no point in worrying about it that will just stress you more.

    Surely though, quotes are a pivotal part of the understanding of the texts, as they support your points (serving as evidence etc.)?! As you're a foundation candidate, you can't afford to give marks aware as carefree as a Higher candidate, so maybe you're not going to get a C.

    I suppose it depends on the exam board. Hoping AQA won't be too harsh with me!

    My teacher is an exam marker as well and has more than 20 years experience in all this so I doubt a person with so much experience and knowledge won't know the facts properly.
