Missed out section C of AQA GCSE English lit paper 2, am I cooked?

I accidentally didn’t flip the extract booklet page for GCSE English lit paper 2 yesterday and stupidly ended up missing out the whole of section C (Unseen poetry)
Can I still at least get a grade 7/8?

32 in total 🥲
You miss out 32 marks. Based on previous year grade boundaries, if you got full marks in the previous Q then you would get a 7 (you could only miss 2 marks in total in Q1 and Q2, or you would get a high 6). I think if the grade boundaries go down and you have high marks for all questions, then you could potentially get a 7, but realistically, a 6.

It's the total score for two papers that matter. Just hope that you will get high marks for P1.

also remember that a lot of people made a ton of mistakes like that this year… people wrote about mR birling instead of mRS… the grade boundaries should be fine!
