    Hi, so I'm studying CCEA AS English but my class is nowhere near finished the full course and I'm afraid that we might not get it all finished before study leave...we've finished A Streetcar Named Desire and have done most of the poems, but we're literally 4 chapters into The Scarlet Letter and it's really heavy going...I don't know what to do...

    1. Talk to teacher.
    2. Take revision into your own hands and get some revision notes plus use youtube to see if there are any videos. Amazon.

    I might be tempted to buy

    might even be for gcae but some knowledge is better than not having covered them.
    They have them for the other two as well.

    Try not to panic and just make the most of the situation. That is what will be most productive for you.

    thank you!!
    Worrying can be damaging and doesnt change the exam date.
    Take it into your own hands and move quickly. the situation has had 2 years to develop. Just sort out a workaround and get on with it.

    Theres a couple of 2nd hand books here one for 1p+postage and the other for 54p. I thought the lit charts were good and if you bought 1 month then you could dload the others as well.

    Ok that means less volume of material so easier to handle. Everything I said previously applies, just that it could have been much worse, so less reason to worry..
