I find English not that difficult. for me it is quite easy especially English literature. i am hoping to get 7/8 grade as i want to do it in A level.
the advice i would give is revise weeks before as i am pretty sure you won't get a lot of quotes in your head in last minute revison
On the otherhand Maths is just....
i can't really describe it except DIFFICULT but with revison i am hoping to get 7 grade- fingers crossed.
when you said the timetables are out, what do you mean, if you can tell me about it that would be nice
Also if you need help on English i can help you if you want. pm me or whatever u want. what exam boards are you doing?

I had a look at the specimens just for the sake of it and they look so much harder compared to the old specs.

For english literature ?

Oh sorry my exam boards AQA, you probably have it differently. However, we have to memorise what the poems are about, form, structure..etc

You won't know what poems you are comparing until the exam so you need to know everything about all of them including quotes to support your answer as you will get one unseen poem. Fun!

I am just curious about the new spec. How many poems do you need to learn and do you also need to learn quotes from books?

Yeah same. So frustrating as there are like 12 poems in that anthology. Are you doing love and relationships?
