Hi, I recently did my english lit exam on an inspector calls and dr J and mr h but I so stupidly mixed the Victorian era and Edwardian era however I know I did well in most content and expression?
Could I get some advice?
Also If I were to do really well in my Romeo and Juliet know exam and unseen poetry could it boost my grade to a possible 5 or 6?

don't worry about it much it is just one mistake and think that lots of people don't even include context so you won't lose many marks if any as long as the rest of it was accurate. you will be fine!

I doubt that you'll lose too many marks as it is just one mistake and, as you said, you did well in other content and expression. This is especially if you included other context which was accurate. Plus, whilst I know they are different eras, Victorian and Edwardian aren't vastly different (e.g. it's not like you tried to talk about the Roman era) and so I would seriously doubt that an examiner would dock many more than 1 or 2 marks just for that. Regarding whether you can still get a grade 5/6, I don't know what grade you're working at now but that one mistake is by no means devastating - I really don't think that it would cost you a grade unless you were right on the boundary. Just keep focusing on your next exam and smash it and then, hopefully, those one or two more marks lost in the first paper won't mean anything.

Thank you soo much. I seriously was so scared when
I realised my mistake 2 days after given that I was so
focused on including other context I totally forgot about the most simplest one so thank you

i did exactly the same thing i wrote in my Romeo and Juliet Exam about how and "edwardian audience" would react and obviously it was just the pressure of the exam. I think it's quite a common mistake to make so try not to worry
