Band 4 is the highest you can get so if you're getting in to that point now I think you are doing well. I was hitting only band 3 in my class essays but came out with an A in my actual exam. The examiners are more lenient in terms of marking.

I thought Band 6 was the highest :/ or maybe that's for coursework then. And I've done the exam so just hope I pass, I highly doubt I'll get an A but I'll be happy with a B.

I'm doing AQA also and band 4 is the highest. You might be doing the other specification.

I do AQA English Language and Literature specification A. You must be doing specification B. Sorry to confuse.
