    thank you so much bro


    I would say start with question six, its the most weighted one ad you should get it out of the way then do 4 and 5 whichever you prefer, and then at the end do question 1 2 and 3, in any order but if youre running out of time then do it according to how good you are at them, for example im crap at question 2, no matter how hard I try I always get 3-4 marks so id leave that till last. but good luck

    I got an A however it was impossible for me because my coursework mark was a B and I got a C in the mock. When it came to exam revision I got newspapers and annotated them and I did loads of past papers. Most importantly I extended my vocabulary and that is what I think really boosts up your marks in the writing section. Also you should read a lot of books, when I started to read regularly, I improved in many areas which I also believe allowed me to perform well in my exam.

    I agree with you, ever since reading books, constantly, I've improved my vocabulary.Hopefully it works well in the summer .
