    Bit late to this tbh. Just thought I’d bring the people who sat the 2017 GCSE’s, and share the anger and frustrations of them😂 feel free to share you’re experience. I hope you all are now happy after that horrific ordeal (it was for me at least anyway) 💜

    Really annoyed about the poem that come up for aqa english literature and the questions.All the questions that come up I never practiced or looked at.I managed to get an 8 overall.The teachers said it will be easy as it is the first yet and they were wrong.Maths also annoyed me as barely any surds come up and they were different than the specimen papers.

    I did AQA Eng Lit too, I did Love and Relationships and I never managed to fully revise for the poem that came up. Which of the two anthologies did you do?

    No way lol. I looked at it for 5 minutes and got it in the last 2 minutes. Barely finished writing the last sentence to sum up my calculations before the invigilator ripped the paper from my hands xD

    Although still so pissed how I was 1 mark off a 7 in English Language and an 8 in English Literature. And people who did worse than me ended up getting 8s and 9s
