    Hey basically, you seem really clever and stuff
    But I accidentally wrote it was an internationally charity instead of local. Will I get marked down because I misread the question? I'm so nervous! And I think my handwriting was terrible for the speech one. And I wasn't able to check and now I'm really really worried.
    Unfortunately, it is possible to be marked down for your mistake because you weren't particularly focused on the question and so your content would be a bit off. However, since you were talking about a charity, they could slightly more lenient in not taking marks away! Hopefully you will be okay though and if you're coursework is not too bad, then that might pump it up!

    My handwriting was a disgrace haha, i went to my english teacher and she said it doesnt matter what the handwriting was like, as long as youce wrote what they asked then its fine.

    I also didnt write about a local charity, at least i dont think i did, i did cancer research. I remember in mocks, my english teacher said that the examiners try to give as many marks as possible, and are usually quite generous. Also according to other tsr users, i think its okay! Hopefully theyre right!!

    Did everyone do the report in 1st person or 3rd person? Or a mixture?
    I did it in third person but many people did it in 1st person because the question asked for 'Your suggestions and views'.

    Hi!

    I personally wrote about a local charity; I very nearly did international, though(until I read the question again). However, I'd imagine the examiner won't mind too much. That's only a small part of your writing! Plus, technically, they shouldn't judge you based on your knowledge; it's all about the creativity! As for the handwriting, they probably come across tonnes of messy handwriting (probably much morse than yours!), so I'm sure they'll have the ability to read it! Haha, hope that helps! 😊

    I just talked about Cancer Research becuse there is a local charity for that in our town. To be honest I doubt they would take marks off you for mentioning a different charity since what they care about is the quality and content of writing so I wouldn't worry about it. If you mentioned a charity in Britain like Cancer Research, then you will be fine since it is a major charity in all towns and cities. They do not know where you live! That is why I used a British charity. Since like you, it can technically be seen as local for many.

    I personally love it! Each to their own, I guess. I've no idea; potentially something linked with German/Business Studies. How about you?

    Did everyone write in subheadings and did you write a bullet point recommendation?

    crap I just noticed something, I wrote about a charity event held locally (a summer event) , but it's purpose is to help people world wide (children in poorer countries). Was the aim of the charity to help people locally? Also forgot if I mentioned that the money raised was going to be used to help these people, or would it be obvious to the examiners?

    I didn't have enough time to check and honestly I think I made so many grammatical mistakes. Could we retake this exam later (if we get a bad grade in which I honestly think I will)
