can someone explain how this works? do you mean they could split half your adv with 1 unit of ext?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.
