Thank You! I didn't do so great at my mocks but I'm hoping to improve dramatically with more hardwork and effort.

Todays Top Tip!
For English Language when writing an argument ALWAYS make sure you look at counter argument-it shows you are not biased and this is importan because you're not writing a persuasive piece.

You may want to follow this structure:
WHAT YOU BELIEVE-AGREE/DISAGREE-WHY e.g. I firmly believe that...
LOOK AT COUNTER ARGUMENT e.g. some people may thin that....
SAY WHY YOU THINK THNE COUNTER ARGUMENT IS MISTAKEN e.g However/Nevertheless/Stil....

For English Literature my school gave me a 4 for getting 25/40 in the anthology section. For shakespeare i got 27/40 which gave me a grade 5.

For English language I got 19/40 in the 20th century reading paper which was 1 mark off a 4. For the creative wrting prose i got 23/40 wgich also gave me a 4.

I dont have the actual grade boundaries. Let me know what grade boundaries your school used for Eduqas and how were your mock if you don't mind sharing?

I believe it was something like 33/40 for a 7- very tight grade boundaries. Good Luck hope you do well! Also don't you ever wish that your school did examboards like aqa because ther's hardly any free online resources for eduqas?!

I wish we did AQA! There are literally no resources for English language. I researched everywhere and all there is on YouTube is the overview and time management video. However, I am still watching Mr Bruff and mr salles video because the AO's are same meaning the skills are same. Therefore it will still help. How are you revising? Have your school told you about structuring?

I watch Mr Bruffs videos too to revise sometimes but our school has provided us with an english language workbook which i use to revise. However for English literature I use any resources on the internet. What do you mean by structuring- in what context? please clarify

they havent told us much about structure just qoute+infer for the reading papers per mark so if it was a 10 mark question you should aim at making 10 inferences with a qoute which are very succinct. However if I know of any more I'll keep you updated. Has your school given you a structure to follow?

Do you know the grade boudaries that your school used?

Many schools like mine predicted that there will be very low grade boundaries. i.e an 8 is 52 marks.

I highly doubt 52 is going to be an 8. Atleast 65-68 will be 8. Even higher I think.

What my school is saying is that it's almost impossible to predict grade boundaries now because it all depends on how the country does as a whole but they believe grade are likely to be low bit there is no definite figure. There my school are using high grade boundaries so it will be less of a surprise for us in the summer if they were put up.

Also I believe they will award grade 8/9s to the top percentage of people who achive grade 7
