    another quick question guys , for question 4 as it is 16 marks would 4 paragraphs (all comparative) be sufficient enough? Secondly if i were to write 4 paragraphs what type of things could i mention , i want examples of topics to talk about in my paragraphs e.g. sentences, imagery ect. ??

    thanks !!!

    Hi!

    I have this exam and i'm dreading it. In the mock i got a B with no revision so hopefully i will get an A or A* in the exam.

    Does anyone have any tips for revising? There are 3 past papers so i think i should just learn how to answer questions from looking at the mark schemes.

    From school i brought a book called "AQA Gcse English and English language revision workbook higher" by Esther Menon and Peter Buckroyd.

    I have been trying to find the mark sceme for it online as in the book it says "You can find answers to the activities online" except i cant find them! Does anyone have a link? I really need it!
    Thanks and good luck

    Does the book have any good tips you could share?

    http://web.aqa.org.uk/qual/newgcses/...ials.php?id=01

    Go to the link, but the PDFs never load so just copy the codes from the URL (The end bit where it says AQA- etc) and paste it into google, you'll find it there Hope that helps :P

    Thank you so much! I was looking for the mark scheme for a book! But the papers will also help! Would you happen to know if there are older papers before 2011 for this?

    As much as possible :/

    My teacher said 3-4 pages for the second one is sufficient.

    I think you can start writing. Im probably gonna skim the first extract start the question, and skim the rest when i come to do the other questions. Timing is crucial in this exam....every second counts.....
