help gcses english language

Postby babby_shrek » Thu Jun 09, 2005 10:08 pm

this week i have had a WHOLE week of fricking exams; two each day and i am seriously suffering from sleep deprivation but i need to analyse poems for tomorrow because my teacher is really rubbish and gave us no notes whatsoever. i'm really worried now and i think my history exam today went awful - i didn't manage to finish in time and now i'm feeling so drained and tired. sorry for ranting, i just needed to vent my frustration

i have english language tomorrow aswell and this past year poems has been the thing i daydreamed through the whole time because there so boring! lol well thats my view.

trust me hun you will do fine i mean it cant be as bad as me when in that first english exam we had i broke down crying because i couldnt read the questions!

try suffering from dyslexia but not finding out soon enough before my exams!

i feel sorry for you having so many exams i havent had that many this week. all i can say is try your best tomorrow thats all anyone can ask for and get lots of sleep over the weekend.

heres a bit of advice when you read the questions on poems underline the key words in the anthology book (if thats what you use) and the question paper. it will help. trust me.

wish you the best in your exam and please dont worry!

good luck!

Oki um...well I'm not so good on the poems either but a few of us stayed behind after school today and a teacher went through some notes with us. So if you were really struggling I could try and point out a few things for you, because I'm sure your teacher should have gone through them with you a bit.

Also, we have books on the second task...Analyse, Review, Comment. So if you needed any tips I could try and find the most useful things for you.

Good Luck with the exam xx

Just realised the time...so you probably wont see this!...Hope you do okay though! x

Are you allowed to take the books in with you? I was allowed a copy of the book with pencilled notes to take into the exam - they're not looking to see who's memorised the poems, they're looking for how well you understand it. You'll be fine. Just take it easy and don't worry about your history exam - I didn't finish my history paper either and I still got an A.

Yeh...they only changed the rules this year :evil:

In our school, last year the GCSE students were allowed their annotated copies.

I've finished school now!...Last exam was yesterday. How is everyone else finding the exams?

Yeh, a lot deeper than it first seems. Like all the stuff about hopes and dreams.

Lol...when we watched the video in class, I was the only one nearly crying when they were going to shoot the dog! :oops:

Yeah, it's a deep book.

Lol... yeah, that bit is really sad. Altho it's also really emotional when George has to shoot Lennie.
