    Hi everyone,
    I got my GCSE results yesterday and i am happy with most of them... I love english and worked so hard towards it but unfortunatly on the day of the exam i wasnt well and got sent home after which made me believe i didnt perform as well as usual, however i thought i had pissibly got a B in the exam or a C at the lowest.However, when my results came back i found that in the first literature exam i got a grade E (i did Animal Farm and OMAM). Although unwell i believe that my work couldnt have been that grade as in all my mocks i got A grades and A* grades. I got a grade A in the poetry exam and a grade A in my coursework and usually in the exam i got a E in was my best one... The only thing i can put is down to is the fact that i didnt write my respomse in the correct place as i didnt realise you had to put an X in the box of the book your response was on so i wrote my OMAM response directly under my Animal Farm response. Although i did this my teacher reassured me this wouldnt matter but i read otherwise on The student room at the time but tried to remain hopeful. I am really upset about my result and wondered if anyone could help or if you think it would be a good idea to get a remark as this subject means alot to me and i need a B to study at A level. If this has happened to anyone else please tell me or if anyonr has any advice, many thanks )))
