    Hi,

    I am very well thanks apart from the fact that I have my resit in 2 weeks lol. I was predicted an 8 but slipped in my GCSE and got a 4.

    What about you?
    How did you manage to get a 4 from being predicted an 8?? I'm scared of doing the same thing as in my book Ive been getting 7s on my essays (I'm in Year 10) but I sat a mock a few weeks ago and got a 5. So any pointers to avoid slipping?

    Think grade boundaries will decrease?

    They should lower grade boundaries by at least a bit, right?

    Holy cow I didnt even know their was a lack of linguistic devices in paper 1.

    Tbh I only noticed the colour imagery and pastoral imagery and wrote a bunch about that.Probably waffle but defo wudve got into the top marks tier.If only I finished writing in the space provided but my 10mins were up ://

    I loved paper 2 ngl.
    In the morning I woke up at 8:30 and my brain just said to me :watch a video on how to write a good speech.lol even the invigilator saw my smile when I looked at what q5 asked me to write ^.^

    Id rather not say my grade in summer as I might be accused of narcissim or cockyness.

    Yeah my paper 2 was much better than my paper 1. I think my speech was ok but it had no back bone or structure so yeah....

    Is anyone doing the AQA GCSE English Language resit in 2 weeks time? How are you guys revising?
    I’m doing mine in 2 weeks too (around the 20th of November) and I find it easy to revise by looking over model answers from the aqa website! It’s easy to pick up on the structure examiners are looking for!
