Peoples, im freaking out. I found the creative the easiest so that's the only one i did. My school told me that you only have to do your most strongest one and the BOS would scale it to a mark out of 40. Am i doomed? BTW, its the same with modules right? Like, you only have to do one? Thanks, and Good Luck!
lol screwed for sure. your school is stupid.

I'm sorry to hear about this news.

The best thing you can do about it is to forget about this exam and concentrate on the others.

Don't be silly, all 3 modules count. It's just for paper 1 that only 2 sections are mandatory.

I don't understand how people, after 13 years or so of education still can't finish exams and after two hours, write 5 pages in total for all three sections which is equilivent to my section one. WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING IN THOSE TWO HOURS!?!
But I guess everyone is different, I finished with three minutes to go.

I'm not. Personally, I did all 3 sections because I didn't find out about that till later, but very reliable people on here have told me you only need 2.

I couldn't agree more.. For anyone that actually reads the front of the paper, it clearly says that all 3 sections are worth 15 marks..

There is no truth whatsoever in that.

All sections of both english papers are marked and all count.

Then they'll count your extension mark. They take your best 2 units of english, and then your 8 best units - so if extension english is in those 8 then it will count. And all three sections of paper 1 count. My teacher is a senior marker and he never said anything about only 2 sections counting - and trust me, all my school cares about is the band sixes, if that was true they would have told us to just focus on two sections.
A bit off topic, but now I'm curious because I have 12 units and I'm basically writing off Legal Studies as I went poorly, so if my best 2 units of english get counted, if my Extension 1 marks is one of those, does that mean it doesn't count to the 8 and Legal Studies is then counted?

No, not at all. The only ruling is that a minimum of two English units are counted, but all three can be counted if they are in your best ten when it's all scaled and aligned etc.
