Hi guys!

Diksha here!

So with around 75 days to go until my first GCSE,it's all starting to sink in so I made this post to find out how you guys are feeling about these exams (like is anyone even prepared?) and how hard do you predict these exams are going to be? Like,I've been doing past papers and stuff and for maths especially ('Edexcel') some papers are mad!

Hope to hear from you soon!

The grade boundaries are deffo gonna be higher so the papers may be at the same standard or harder I doubt they will be any easier. In terms of languages the listening papers were unbelievably difficult so they might make those easier. Im jusst thinking what the english lit questions will be like.

Definitely agreeing with you on the language listening papers,they were very difficult,I had the Spanish one for my mock and it was crazy!!
English literature keeps me thinking as well because so far the questions seem to be samey but I'm scared they'll try and spice things up a little bit for our year,considering we're the third year running for the new spec for English-like can you imagine writing an essay on Eva Smith (if anyone does 'An Inspector Calls')...

No way- The Porter has 4 speech lines!

For GCSE they will keep it to main themes/characters. For the 2019 AQA paper, going off of the 2017/2018 questions and sample papers I reckon guilt or fate vs free-will. Most likely Guilt IMO.

Hi there everyone!
Any ideas about the English Lit poetry comparison essay? What the question could be? For those that did their GCSEs last year and the year before, what were the questions that came in the exam?
