Aw that's great! Hopefully we can help each other out then!
I ask myself the same question haha. I had my paper one mock today! I really enjoy the course so I guess it's easier for me to work hard for something that I enjoy if that makes sense!
I'm hoping to study English and Linguistics as a joint honours how about you?

Hello, I'm on the A course studying pre-1900 poetry, Othello, The Great Gatsby, Love through the ages, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, All My Sons and Feminine Gospels!
How's everybody finding the course?

I'm sorta lacking on critical quotes (A05) (Notably in the Pre-1900 poetry) so if any of you guys study the above texts, that'll be amazing.
