    We're edexcel as well, but ours is about a music festival? I don't think we have any such task. Currently finishing activity 2, making the flyer and the model. I only took it because it's my "chill" subject - everyone should have one :P

    I think there are three different units and we only do one. Most of us in my class are doing the news broadcast and a few others are designing their own video game, or something along the lines of that. I only took ICT as my chill subject as well haha :P Now I'm starting to regret choosing it because I find it so boring; I think maybe I should have chosen History instead.

    Yeah, having taking RPE I'm fairly sure I wouldn't want to take another essay writing subject. Memorising that much material is hard for me, and stressful. But for ICT I can literally do my revision an hour before the exam :P

    What exam board are you on for ICT? I do it as well and I'm on Edexcel and we're doing Unit 2: In the News for our coursework where we have to produce our own news broadcast.

    i am on edexcel too but we are doing unit 1 so we have to do things surrounding a music festival , right now we are doing the mobile application and the promo. The sources and asset tables are real pains though and the activity reviews. Have you started any theory yet ?

    Nice, we're barely finished with activity 2... We did most of the theory in year 10 ;-) It seems as though we've spent more than 40 hours on CAB already, there needs to be a better way of monitoring that :-P

    We've done quite a lot of theory but we haven't finished it yet, what about you? I agree, filling in the asset table is so annoying!

    Hey, I wouldn't consider myself a pro in any way but I got full marks on my controlled assessment on comparing texts for literature and on the mock . I'll try and help you out if you give me a bit more detail on the task, but I think the general points with comparison are to show both explicit and subtle links between texts, compare the context/writer's ideas, and their effect on the reader.
    In any other general essay it's just so important to make sustained, developed points, sophisticated ideas, close language analysis and show a really good understanding of the text. Some things which are really important to consider: the form, structure and general ideas/plot of the text, the writer's purpose, the social and historical context and the effect on the reader. If you address all these things you should be looking at A/A* but if you need more specific help I'm happy to help, I've studied of mice and men and comparing poems but not inspector calls

    I got full marks on my Literature CAT too, though I think I'd find it difficult to help without actually seeing some of your work, but you you can ask me any questions you want about it if you need/want to. What kind of marks/bands are you getting at the moment?
    Thank you both so so so much for offering to help , well I have just done a timed essay on an inspector calls after improving from my last essay (on my last essay I got band 4/5), I will get back the essay that I have tried to improve on after half term, so would it be okay if I asked you questions after I have my latest piece back so I know what band I am currently on
    If any of you guys need help with anything(other than English obviously) ill be happy to help, thank you again

    I got full marks on inspector calls. The main thing I was losing out on in my first draft was the background info. If you look to the very start of the book, there is a lot about the background.

    I think it's good. Takes the pressure off on exam week, so we can revise harder for hard subjects, like Latin. Nice of Edexcel to consider our personal lives.

    Oh okay, so you add in a paragraph about context or do you link it?
    Do you mean like the dramatic irony with titanic and war because the play was written later than it was set?
