Thanks for the advice! It helped me too
can you tell me how to structure my essay so I can fit everything in and it is A* standard as well please
(sorry for stealing the thread temporarily!)
OK well to start; English Structuring is the Same all round..
When you make a point Make sure you Back it up with an example..
I dont know if youve Been taught any of these [PEEL] [PQE] [PEE]
Take PQE for example
Always link what your talking about back to the original question
NEVER lose Focus on the question..
ATBQ- Answer the bloody Question [As my teacher Says]
As for Structuring your paragraphs, Start off with a strong Introduction [Most likely having to introduce the topic and maybe briefly introduce some characters]
[Then Dive staright iinto answering the question! dont Be Repetative]
Also Make a point and then stick by it.. the worst thing to do is Contradict yourself infront of the examiner [It will show you havent a clue as to what your talking about!]
Throughout the Paragraphs, you can briefly look into other areas, but dont completly drift.
I cant STRESS enough how important it is to stay focused on the question!
Make sure your Paragraphing is Clean and Neat [The examiners are more likely to give you marks if it is easy for them to follow your work]
Finally, Make sure you End on a weighty conclusion.
Review everthing you've said through all your paragraphs in brief points [NEVER bullet points] then try to expand on you ideas [Breifly]
then last but not least: end it in a way where yu are linking everything back to the original question...
Well, i Hope this has Helped!
