    Re: English Paper 1 - Thoughts

    The exam was sooo easy. Section 3 was the easiest. I moulded my memorised essay with the question real nicely. Section 1's Text 3 picture was something I felt like I should use in my answers but didn't. Not sure if I really regret that minor decision. It was just a photo of a soccer goal or something.

    yeah totally!! as we left my friend brought that up and i thought that maybe they wouldnt put a photo in unless they wanted some sort of reference?? maybe a answer that was a amalgamation of literary and visual techniques?? god knows

    Yeah except I'm not entirely sure if the picture amounted to anything with regards to the question. What was the question again? Something like how did the language convey discovery? Once I read over the question I kinda thought maybe the picture is a distraction from the question asking for the language used.

    The only technique I used for that stupid Mango question was something dumb like 'truncated sentences'. I actually regret that decision now.

    something about language showing speculation or something like that?? yeah youre right but maybe it can be viewed in the context of visual language too.

    Truncated sentences is good I always use it

    Also I was dodgy with the 6 marker didn't know how to say it well since the texts were weird so I wrote 3 pages for it LOL let's hope the technique dump works

    If you are feeling a bit glum, have a look at band 1 samples, such as this classic

    Re: English Paper 1 - Thoughts

    I went pretty shit to be honest. Think I did better in trials *sigh*

    Section 1 was ok but annoying how there were only three texts.
    By section 2 paragraph 2, my hand was ded. I sat there for three minutes and massaged tf out of it "tenderised tf out of it"- snowflek
    Section 3 was pretty shit as well lmao. The stimulus wasn't bad just that I took too long to write because of my arm.

    All in all probs got 13+11+10= 34/45= 75% *fml*
    Would have done better if I didn't tire my hand out so early. Worked too hard for this
