yikes, I'd say around maybe 40 per text? Im not sure tbh, I sort of just remembered the odd few words here and there, but look at my Inspector Calls method, that really helped me when revising

it's not hard. wait till you do a level and go to uni. but GCSEs have always been laid back even if the new ones were supposed to be so much harder

ayee thanks I'm going to hit the college library tomorrow morning so I'll definitely check them out

As long as you can motivate yourself and work hard I'm sure you'll be fine!

(Okay I know it sounds dramatic bc I literally did gcses like under a year ago and it wasnt even traumatic, but my mind has pretty much supressed most memories of GCSEs oops)
But yeah, I would usually work in big chunks of different subjects so like 5 pages of notes for one subject (2-3 days) and then move to another, it stressed me out to not be focussing at all subjects but then once I got in the zone I often didnt want to stop
Thank you
Ahaaaa your handwriting is so nice

How the hell are you supposed to write so much? Like, jeez! Our teacher says we need to write about 4 A4's for each lit essay. The most I've every done is 2.5 sides size 12 font 1.15 spacing. How can we write 4? That just seems way too much.

Thanks!

Tbh though I managed to write 5 pages for creative writing for my lan exam yesterday, size 12 1.15 spacing.

That's awesome, well done! Just to let you know, I recieved consistent 7's and occasional 8's near the end of course, you're on the right track at the moment! You never know, your teachers may just be harsh markers
Macbeth and Silas Marner -if anyone asks me help about Silas Marner then soz I refuse to help I've only read the 2nd page oops
I just googled a summary of Silas Marner... It's so frigging boring. How did you deal with that?

no worries, when analysing quotes it's better to analyse/specify which particular word gives u an impression for example When Macbeth states 'We are yet young in deed' the word 'yet' indicates that he intends to further commit murder

see I was exactly like that, I didnt get how everyone managed to write so much, focus on quality of content. when youre in the exam itll all just come to you and you'll write much more than you realise -dont focus on quantity, do quality.

I ended up writing 4/5 pages but that was because my writing is really long and messy

no worries I would honestly say just do the best you can and in the exam dont even stress yourself out, once you do the exam just accept it, dont talk about answers unless you want to make yourself feel worse and just focus on your next exam, its not the end of the world if things dont go to plan and most of the time you often do better than you think
