Revolution 1- The Beatles
Hello to anyone out there! I’m back with a mock exam update.
I’ve had a week of college since my mock week and it’s been tough. Tiring. I felt like they should have ended off the half term. I don’t get my results until after half term, but let’s break them down.
28/1: Media Studies
I worked the hardest for this exam, making mindmaps in every single product we’ve studied. It was 2hr 30min and my hand nearly fell off writing 12 solid pages, but I think I answered the questions well and when I read it through, I was happy that I had included a lot of theory and even some criticism in there too. I’m happy with how this one went!
31/1: English Literature
I oddly enjoy lit exams because I like the feeling of accomplishment when you write a load of essays in one sitting. I am on the AQA board and study Othello and Brighton Rock. I liked the extract Othello question, and seeing as I had practiced an extract question the night before, I think it went well. The Brighton Rock question was more difficult as it had several questions in one. I had to consider the ‘varied’ ‘motives’ for ‘betrayal’ and their ‘consequences’ which are ‘fateful’. That’s a lot.
1/2: Classical Civilisations
Several of my friends had finished their mocks by now, so I was getting demotivated. However, I wrote solidly for 2hr 20mins (too long if you ask me). There were so many questions it was exhausting. But I think it went alright.
Normal college is going okay I suppose. I can’t wait for half term and for MEDIA COURSEWORK TO BE OVER. The deadline is this Friday. I’ve got two tiny adjustments to make and then it’s gone from my life forever!
I’ll either update in half term to let you know about some of the revision I’ll hopefully have started, or afterwards with news of my mock results. If you had any, I hope they went really well for you.
Remember- success is the result of the effort you put in. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.
Bye for now guys.
