I put that as well as animal sanctuary visit(Original post by examhater44)
Man i talked about how what they did would determine what to do for the rest of the trip according to the husbands injury for BP3For example, -I said we would take more excursions if the husband was fit enough -I said we would just stay in the hotel and relax -I said we would maybe have to leave earlier than planned because the husband's injury was very serious and he wasn't able to do anything
Would I get any marks for this?

For Question 1:Bullet Point 3 (referring to her plans for the future), I stated that she could start writing a good review for the hotel, since her husband will probably not plan on doing this.

[Keep checking! I will be updating. This is only a guideline on what most people put, please be free to add any other points]
With the help of Kryll, j_ball_99 and a few others.
Letter beginning with Dear friend...
What were her first impressions of the hotel and the staff?
- Al was generous as he waited in the airport for the guests to arrive, quite unusual.
- The Gardners discussion was nice
- Pre-arranged journey after airport
- Al seemed to care about her neck pain and tried to improve stay whenever Al could
- Hotels dining room was good
- The landscape and artwork
- But impression that it was all 'put on' by Al.
- And perhaps a problem staff wise due to the half full booking...
- Threw a tantrum at market at her
- Child like immature/irresponsible
- Pressured Al into putting him in group
- During dinner said that Als plans were boring
- Refused to hike due to rubble on top of the hill- rude
- Refused to go to the animal sanctuary
- Arrogance lead to injuries in rafting
- To collect him from hospital
- Fill out any medical forms
- To persuade him not to file a complaint
- To go to the airport by Friday to go home
- Spend remaining days writing notebook
- Spend remaining days with bees and seeing how she can help
- .Explore the history and area of the place
- Leave a good reputation after her husband, before she leaves
- Visit the animal sanctuary
- Hike on the hill that her husband refused to go
- Staged scenes: carefully put together, dramatic like a play.
- Laced with sunlight: lit beautifully, lace is something fine and expensive, special, high quality, romantic...But also pure and spiritual due to connotations of light
- Half-forgotten sandy roads; like a picture book - nostalgic - movie like and also old/ ancient due to sand gathering on it
- Conjuring a charming mirage - skillfully constructed, like a wizard; impressive,magical
- White-washed walls: alliteration highlighting how perfectly painted they are. Purity due to connotations of white and sense of religion/spiritual.
- Embroidered gowns: fine detail, links to silk.Imagery of a fairytale kingdom
- Bits of cloth - cheap, incomplete material, poverty
- Rainbow of produce - varied, colourful, wide range of produces/ dishes
- Beehive that was the old town - busy, all working hard and quickly going their separate ways
- Straggling market stalls - slow, like someone losing a race
- Tatty trinkets - useless bits, cheap and cheesy, badly made
1. 30% of crops rely on bees like apples cherries
2. They use natural pollination
3. Without them could be global starvation
4. They help grow and produce healthy foods
5. The honey they produce is used in medicines
6. They can show us our environmental health
7. Help make costs for farmers steady/ under control?
8. Bees are essentially free labour for the food industry
10. Chemicals and pesticides which alter their behavior fatally
11. Lack of genetic pool- susceptible to diease
12. The blood-sucking mite
13. Lack of nutritious bee friendly flowers
14. Transportation of hives which causes stress
15. Putting bees in cities will leave wild bees with less nectar
16. Climate change and bizzare local weather
17. Fungal infections so viruses
18. Increase in bees in city restricting nectar available for wild honeybees
And more forgotten points...
/5 if you wrote 200-250 words, used all the points and was concise.
Secondly Question 2 I only wrote 3 paras, although I have the same explanations above how many marks do you think I'll get

The word count is not a limit but a recommendation, it says in the chief examiners report that going over it will not affect your mark

If you don't cover bullet points equally you can only get 6ish marks for content
- 04-05-2016 13:39
you're in the 7-9 band + /5 for writing. If I wrote 3 for first BP 4 for BP2 and 3 for BP3 is that uneven?

In question 2 I wrote about the "orange trees" and said how trees aren't usually orange so it's exotic and etc ... Then I find out they meant the fruit !!! FML ☹
