I just did my GCSEs and now I am on summer break. I am known both at school and at home to be an extremely hard working student, and I usually achieve 7s 8s and 9s in all subjects.
I know that I have done well in all my sciences because those are my stronger subjects. However, I am really worried for English. I do English AQA and I found the language papers quite hard, especially paper 1.
Both of my sixth forms that I have applied to require a 6 in English. For me, English is either hit or miss. I have previously in mocks gotten a 7 in paper 2, a 9 in paper 1 and then a 6 in paper 2 again.
It’s not that I stopped working hard, but I found the test and extract hard.
I am worried because I really need a grade 6 and I am in top set but I still feel as though English was weak. It has always been my weak subject since day 1. I really did revise as much as I could for English but I’m just really worried for that subject. I am doing biology chemistry and psychology next year for ALEVELS so a high English grade is required.
I found literature much better but that doesn’t matter.
any ideas ?? it’s really stressing me out and although my parents told me not to worry, English is so important and there’s no point in getting high grades in other subjects if English is a low grade
