    I thought poetry was okay but LIT BOOKS WAS AWFUL. I completely messed up my Of Mice and Men essay, and I cried when I got home...and I need to do well in English lit because I'm doing it for a-level.

    So yeah, I failed too

    I feel exactly the same. If it makes you feel any better I only did one paragraph for the unseen I know it's hard but try to just stop thinking about it. What's done is done and you can't change what you've written now so there's no point in worrying about it Just focus on the rest of your exams and you've probably done a lot better than you think.

    Yah same..but keep this in mind
    Examiners mark edexcel lit paper 1 more lenient as you have to memorise the quotes
    Paper 2 I fkd up...I chose prose and I ignored the 2nd paragraph..little did I know that it was pathetic fallacy...your not the only one that flopped
    Always English language is tonnes more important
    Focus on it👆
