    Please please please PLEASE would someone help!
    I can't find anything online for this anthology as our year is the first year to do this anthology. In previous years, it was 'travel'. I am finding it really difficult to get anything higher than a B- in my essays, and my exam is in two weeks!

    My coursework is at a High A so that is fine (40% of my grade), but i just can't seem to get these essays right!

    All my teachers keep saying is closer analysis is needed, but how?! If anyone has any model answers or anything, that would be so helpful. thankyou

    It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out MarkedbyTeachers.com, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK.

    They've got over 181,000+ coursework, essays, homeworks etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level, University and IB students across all topics. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying £4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.

    All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site's used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.

    What's more, you can take a look around the site and preview the work absolutely free. Click here to find out more...

    Perhaps she is referring to language analysis. Are you analysing specific language choices in each paragraph? And do you know the appropriate terminology regarding it?

    I did this exam last year. Indeed, it was on travel. I have an A* essay somewhere - if you are desperate, I could try and type it up for you.

    Hey would it be possible if you could just quickly type me up an essay plan - how to structure it and what to include. It would be ever so helpful! Thank you x

    What is GCAPS?
    Genre
    Context
    Audience
    Purpose
    Structure & style

    and one of my teachers went to an examiner meeting the other day and said that candidates are usually scared of writing about grammar and they like to award marks for grammar so maybe we can try to pick things out about grammar in our texts (like complex sentences)
