    I sat the English Language CIE IGCSE Reading Paper in May. For question 2, where you have to select powerful words or phrases, I selected all the ones I was meant to, but did a short explanation on one word. All the other words were analysed and commented on with sophisticated language, but for one word, I did not do that. Judging from the mark scheme I have attached, what mark could I get. I am really good at English and have a really good vocabulary but really want 10/10 on this question. Would I lose 1 mark?
    I know it is hard to tell because you have not seen my paper, but I am really worrying about this!
