    Done my first piece of original writing and started my second one First one went very well and my teacher really approves of it but struggling with my second piece. Its purpose is inform and persuade, was wondering if the facts and stats have to be completely true or can I make them up? any ideas?

    i've finished both of my pieces, i think they're getting marked by examiners now (ish). i did a monologue and then a travel guide in the style of lemony snicket (don't ask haha).

    @wilbourns i would assume the facts and statistics would have to be true if you have access to them but it depends i guess. i'd probably err on the side of caution and use proper facts if you know them.

    Thats great! Good to get some of it out the way I think it's best to keep statistics as accurate as possible in case the examiner decides to check up on the off chance

    Are you all talking about AS or A2. Coz Im doing A2 and was wondering about the second part of the coursework where you have to do investigation and research if I can take like articles and use it in my research or I have to record my own data (like record people or take questionaires) coz thats what it says in the book. And I really prefer to collect my own articles on whatever subject I decide to do.

    Also what's the deadline? 15 May right? Coz Im an external candidate so obviosly everything is a lot more complicated. When do you people get your coursework in?

    I'm doing A2 - i think in the investigation, you dont have to record your own data, just acknowledge it in a bibliography. My data was videos from youtube I'm not sure when the deadline is but my unofficial teacher's deadline is the end of this week

    That's cool - i think for AS i did an article and an analysis or something - it wasn't as interesting as A2 is

    hey, it was basically comparing interview techniques. I used two interviews with the same interviewee and one male and one female interviewer. Yeah i had to do two transcripts - it took ages! x
