    I chose gender but half way through regretted it! It was so hard to use theories to explain so I had to come up with general stereotypes from myself.

    Quite tricky!

    Same! :stupid: (That's me by the way!)

    I slept like 3 and half hours which was a really bad idea!

    Grouping was hard - I only did two groups. I didn't get Text G - it was confusing what it was saying.

    Gender was crazy but categorising texts was actual hell. I done pragmatics humour and to inform, I had terrible timing. So yeah. I think I'm retaking next year

    I'm quite embarrassed to say it! It's absolute waffle mine is!

    I said women were portrayed as if they're machines. The shopping experience and the woman together is represented as if it's a game because of the word 'mission'.

    And then the part about the woman asking the opinion and then comparing the man to a middle east envoy - I said it portrayed woman as animalistic lol! Is that even a word?!

    My examiners just going to laugh when he/she looks at my paper!

    I don't think I talked about the effect on the reader enough, and I was grouping texts together for example A, B and C for imperatives (this is just an example, I can;t remember what texts A, B + C were) and then halfway through the paragraph I'd say something like: Text B uses deictic language and then I'd just say Text D also uses deictic language (even though I didn't mention it in my initial grouping). IDK if this is allowed :-(

    those aren't bad points at all. they were portrayed as machines 'programmed' and also as animalistic (which is a word). I talked about the extended metaphor of war as opposed to a game though like the middle east bit, then at the end it said 'patience and tact'

    Yes they're allowed as you're overlapping which the examiners like. You probably didn't do as bad as you think. It's done - you tried your best.

    Try to focus on your other exams now!

    those are decent groupings. i did genre conventions, humour, imperatives and interrogatives, mixed register and metaphorical language.

    Yes - war would be a better comparison due to the words as machines can come into that! Thank God it's a word! You've made me feel so much better! - thank you!

    Those were probably my best points then the other bits I can't even remember I felt very limited on what I could say.

    Do you remember any other points you made/
