    Hello! Does anyone know what writing skill will come up in question 1?
    I have no idea sorry, I asked my teacher if she had an idea and she doesn't because they're so unpredictable

    word count doesn't matter a lot but they will lower maerks if its under because it sa must develop ur points. If u are under it is showing tht u don't develop point. Also just because they aren't gonna penalise u if u go over doesn't mean write tons
    So they'll penalise you if you're under word count but not if you're over?

    Sorry, my bad, didn't explain the question properly. I meant like what writing convention will come up in question 1 e.g newspaper article, report etc
    Newspaper article, letter, formal report, journal entry, interview, speech

    For question 2 does it matter if you use a phrase/word and use 2 words and analyse them? Or would that be too much writing and will I be marked down for it?

    I mean if you took 2 words from a phrase and analysed them.
    So like 'worn mattresses were crammed together'. I say what the literal meaning means and then analyse it. But could I analyse the word 'worn' first and then develop it further by analysing the word 'crammed'?

    Even if you got 15/25 for speaking then you would need around 40 for an A grade. Just assume you didn't do that well for your speaking and use that as a motivation to get around 45+ marks in the exam

    Oh right! I think an A last year was 98/125. 98 - 35 is 63 so your coursework and speaking adds to make 63/125. Really good

    My teacher says you'll get penalised if you go over the word limit. This paper is all about being succinct/concise, not verbose. It's a reading exam.
