    Hello, Citizens of TSR.
    I need your opinion on this.
    Ok, so, I am about to sit my GCSE Literature this year instead of year 11.
    I am doing well and am wondering whether I can receive an 8 or 9.
    My tests since this year were:
    29/40(Creative writing)
    21/30(Jekyll and Hyde)
    27/30(Poetry)

    I think I did well on the last test(3 weeks ago).
    I am doing another mock on Monday(12th) on Inspector Calls
    Anyway, do you think I can achieve a grade 8 or 9?
    Thanks.

    Although it may be too late for your Monday exam, my advice is to sit with your teacher and get feedback/advice on how to get 8/9 in the exam. Okay, you've done well in some past exams but you need to learn from them and how to get the top grades, and that is how you will get an 8/9 in the real thing; by identifying how you can do it.

    Thanks a lot!
    My exam on Monday is a miniature mock so no big deal, also I can easily get over 20 marks lol.
    I have given my teacher lots of essays which I did at home and she told me I had one thing only to improve, I just need to zoom more on keywords. This was what took 3 marks on my last exam. That's all really, I practise every day, write an essay every day so I am improving with every essay I do.
    I am getting distracted on here... Lol thanks for the reply anyway.
    BYEE
