    There wouldn't be a word amount in the question if it didn't mean anything, so yes, you will be penalised. That's what my professor has been telling me for 2 years.

    There isnt a known 'penalty' for writing to little or too much but generally speaking you can sorta reasonably predict how much you need based on the amount of words they say to write plus your own judgement.

    is question 1 on paper 2 classed as directed writing?
    because I'm doing extend - which is where you do paper 2 and 3 (as opposed to 1 and 2 - for core)
    anyways for paper 3, isn't there a directed writing question on that as well?

    I'm confused..

    Question one:
    Possible writing styles:
    - report - talking about past events
    - journal - being reflective
    - speech - use rhetorical devices consistently
    - letter
    - newspaper report
    - magazine article - headline will be provided , use short quotations and over dramatise event (same applies for newspaper)
    - interviews - use the questions provided, DO NOT ADD YOUR OWN QUESTIONS AND DO NOT GIVE THE INTERVIEWER ANY PERSONALITY

    It's important to develop the style of the individual you are writing in the context in and evenly address all three bullet points. For A3 (where you have to infer) use ideas from the passage to develop your answer but DO NOT make things up.

    Question two:
    - write six words for each paragraph if you have enough time. You will not get penalised for this.
    - if you chose a safe word, most likely you won't get credited for it
    - always say the meaning of the word, if you write the effect only then you won't get higher marks (meaning makes up 6/10 of your marks along with the right words that you've picked)
    - always say the effect of the word NOT the effect of the reader (e.g. Don't say "this makes the reader feel....)
    - you can structure your answer like this: choice -> meaning -> effect

    Question three:
    - you cannot write more than 15 points below the lines provided
    - if you have two points as a bullet point then you will only receive one mark
    - if you have more than three as one bullet point you will receive zero
    - make sure your points aren't too similar as this is where you could lose marks
    - write in plain English, you're not writing as anyone

    I think what she meant was make educated guess about the situation, like don't create a whole new story that isn't found in the text. Eg: "he had a picture of his wife in his wallet" so you'd say "I love my wife blah blah"

    For question two she said that you shouldn't use individual words bc it's unlikely that they'll be in the mark scheme. By effect she meant why use that phrase instead of a more simple word. What image does it create etc
