OCR English Literature A level Year 13- please help! Watch

    • Thread Starter


    Are there any B+ candidates doing this course who can help me?

    I'm really worried about the exams and feel like I won't ever get above a D grade. I don't know what to do. What makes the situation worse is that the OCR grade boundaries are extremely high. I actually like English but just really dislike the course and exam board. There's no point saying this, though, seeing as my exams are in like 5 months.

    I don't know what to do. If any B+ students doing this course can help and tell me how they revise or just anything, I would be really grateful.

    The texts I'm studying are:

    Rossetti poetry
    The Duchess of Malfi
    The Bloody Chamber
    The Wasp Factory

    I would be ecstatic with a B grade in this course.

    Thank you

    I did the last year and got an A, I do 3 of the same texts as you, but I do think you're slightly overreacting. Last year, the questions were quite easy and I think the first A2 exam will be a nicer paper. Got any questions ask me
