English language GCSE

I had my English language gcse aqa exam and well…
It didn’t go so well. I panicked lots and I didn’t write enough for q2-4, i did pre plan my q5 though from a previous exam I had got 36/40. I have estimated that my minimum score is 52 and I’m going to keep it minimum so I don’t disappoint myself. I really, really need to get a 9 and for that I need around 75-80 marks out of 80 in my paper 2. I am really determined to work hard and achieve this but I need to know, is this possible? Is it possible I could get 75/80 or even 80/80 if I practice many questions and send them to my tutor for feedback in the one week break?
Roughly estimating around 2 hours of English language a day leading up to the exam.

yeah it’s definitely possible! i got full marks on my mock paper 2 and mine was externally marked! its good you have someone to mark your answers! keep practicing questions and generally the themes for q5 are a lot less broard than on paper 1, itll be some sort of ethical argument like the environment, travelling that sort of thing. keep up the hard work i bet youll do better than you think! :smile:
