    im a year 11 student taking the GCSE language exam on tuesday and wondering could someone please help me with the structure of question 4? Like things to look out for in sources, introductions etc.


    I wouldn't bother with introduction or conclusion, dive straight in.
    Aim for 4/5 paragraphs (shortish, not like page long, more half page or slightly less) on 4/5 similarities or differences. Good things to go for is if they both use eg metaphors or something but one to create a negative tone and the other to create a tone of optimism or something like that. It tends to be easier to compare with source 2 not 1, so try that and also if stuck go for a total difference: for example, one may use statistics to draw in the reader while the other might use personification of food (idk I'm making this up haha) to make the reader feel repulsed.

    ps im taking this tomorrow too, good luck!!
