Anyone really, especially worried about english lang and lit? Watch

    To be honest, I'd say you'll be completely fine, the wonderful thing is, everything is subjective, they aren't marking you on your factual knowledge of the novel, they're marking you on your capability to analyse and argue, so as long as you've talked about all the usual stuff (language, character relationships, themes etc.), you've got nothing to worry about.

    In my friend's English class (different school), their teacher taught them the wrong poems, and they all left the exam thinking they'd failed, so trust me, there are some who have it much worse

    Mm, I wrote all about the usual analytical stuff it was just at the beginning of the paragraph I mentioned about his non existant brother Arthur.

    but thank you

    A lot of people at my school did not open the booklet in the English Language paper :lolwut:.

    Judging from TSR, this happened across the country! So the grade boundaries in that subject will definitely be lower.

    Meh. I made some truly retarded points about the non-fiction prose..I know its "easy" but I always feel like i'm stating the obvious. I ended up just scribbling any old thing down. Hopefully my coursework will save me..
