Had one of my seven exams this week this afternoon, Edexcel maths paper two. Thought it was harder than the first paper, but not too bad. Except the last question which completely stumped me... did anyone else do it?
English and History tomorrow
Think so. This is GCSE?
I did the maths one, and I thought the last few pages were horrid. I didn't answer most of them, well I couldn't answer them. Reckon i've failed maths, but never mind
And I did/do WJEC English and OCR History as well
Snap! History went surprisingly well, I was really really worried about it, but I was pretty confident with most of the questions. English made me laugh - "You are on a bus that stops at some roadworks. Describe the scene." I mean really, could they make it any less exciting
And my story was rubbish as usual
But I just can't write anything decent in that amount of time!! Unless I have a really amazing idea all of a sudden... which evidently I didn't.
Oh well, over half way through now
I thought english was okay, the section a was a bit tough because i thought they would have been better if they did it for the whole text instead of certain sections. Ha, the describe bit was funny. Our exam was started late because every single school bus had been stuck in a massive traffic jam that morning!!!
I had huge writers block though so didn't do very well.
History was okay, but i didn't do very well. Some of the questions were just mean haha. And I nearly didn't finish cos I wrote too much.
What other gcses have you done?
Well the ones that are finished not - Music, Citizenship and Maths. Still have one or more exams left for Add. Science, English, History, Geography and French
Not as stressed as I was over them now though, the important ones for me are over (Maths and Music
Oh I did that in Geog yesterday, it was all sunny and nice outside and I was all chilled out like yeah, I have loads of time to work on this paper, just read it through slowly and start answering a question slowly... and then at the end of the first section I looked at the clock like
and had to write like mad for the next our to try and finish it! Which I didn't quite, because I missed the last case study, but I didn't think I could really do it anyway so that was OK
Good luck for the rest of your exams
