I'm doing that paper tomorrow as well. It's basically Section A: Reading is where you're given two items and then you have four questions on them where you have to analyse the adverts they give you. Section B: Writing is where you write to argue, persuade or advise where you choose from 3 questions to write about.

I too made this mistake in the recent English exam, although I did have quarter of an hour to go back and write about the three pages which I missed. However, I believe this did hinder my answer on section B. Theoretically, us candidates should be able to reach the higher grades if we have used Point Evidence Explanation despite the mistake, but I can't see AQA changing the grade boundaries. However, they should make allowances for those candidates who did make the mistake. Assuming that your other English exams went well, you should be fine so just relax and enjoy your time off :)

which english paper is this? the last paper we did, paper 2, quite a lot of people in my school thought that there was only one page for item 2. but there were 3 in total. and i really hope the grade boundries do go down :D

I had question 2 Not My Business and compared it with Search for my Tongue. I considered doing Presents from my Aunts in Pakistan... maybe I should have actually. There was definitely a lot about conflict. And I described a car journey. Did everyone else do it in first person perspective? Because I did it in second person perspective ie. "You" - that might have been a bit weird, but I still described a lot of things, so hopefully that'll be fine..

Yes, There will be 2 sections, The first section will contain usually 2 articles, one is advertising usually and the other is an article (again usually) You can guarantee you will be asked at least one of the following: about the presentational devices of the advert, the language of the article, the key points of the article, and you usually have to compare the 2. You get 1 hour on this question Section 2, You get given about 4 questions and you choose ONE to answer. These are always either writing to ARGUE, ADVISE, or PERSUADE, then one of the questions uses a combination of 2, such as: write an article to persuade the reader to buy the magazine and argue that it is better than any other. That is quite a bad example but hopefully you get the idea! Good luck, i have my exam tomorrow too!

I did mine today too. 1st question I wrote about responsibility and guilt shown in Sheila and Eric Smith. 2nd question I compared the poems War with Dirge of the Dead Sisters and 3rd question I wrote about the importance of prejudice in Roll of Thunder. I though it went awful, I ran out of time even though I knew what to write I just kept having blocks urgh I'm so annoyed with it, I want to do it all again :( I've got the same as you tomorrow, can't wait (sarcasm)

Hi I studied the novel "Of Mice and Men" and answered the question about dreams. Then i answered the poems one. Compare 4 poems: i chose Havisham, Sonnet 130, On my first Sonne and Mother any distance. I regret picking that question now as i think i could of done better picking the 1st question (section a and b). But hopefully i have done well. :) x
