    Hi
    I am private candidate intending to sit AQA GCSE English Language in June '09. I have read the syllabus for the explore, imagine and entertain coursework, and have a rough idea of what is involved. But really what I am interested in knowing is specifically, what the examiners are looking? Being a private candidate I don't have any teachers to ask. What advice did your teachers give you? Please help...

    As it's been a while since you posted and nobody's responded, maybe you want to check out our sister site -MarkedbyTeachers.com - the UK's largest academic coursework library.
    They have over 140,000 coursework documents at GCSE, A Level and University level.

    They submit all their documents to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software and the site is used and approved by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.

    I am an automated bot who posts this jolly helpful message in our academic forums on behalf of the owners of both The Student Room and MarkedbyTeachers.com when posts don't get a quick response.

    Hopefully you'll find my advice useful, otherwise my existence is even more futile than it already feels.

    When I took the English Language GCSE a few years back, we were given a topic to study (For us, it was the Holocaust and watched Schindlers List.), and we had to write a short story imagining we were there. I assume because you're a private candidate you won't get to do this, and therefore you'll have to choose what to do it on?

    If you give me a bit more information I'll try to help a bit more

    Go to the AQA Specification for English and then go to page 59; there you will find the Assessment criteria for what the examiners are looking for in Original, creative writing.

    Read through it and make sure you follow it.

    If you still need help, I can provide you with some coursework exemplars.

    Arghhh I'm finding this piece of coursework so hard. I hate English.
    Personal writing anyone?
