    Hey, if it's not too late... Can you summarise how to write a formal report??
    Hey! You can go about it in quite a few ways, you basically have the freedom to do what you want with it!
    You can just split it off into each bullet point- you can pack the points in there!

    I've been taught to do this- this is on the very formal end of the spectrum though:

    Aim : What you're inspecting
    Date of Inspection:

    Observations:
    1: one point
    (you can add more details using 1a,1b,1c bullet points here)
    2.
    3.

    Conclusions:
    1
    2
    3

    Recommendations:
    1
    2
    3

    Signature:

    Name of Inspector:

    FULL SENTENCES NEEDED! No Q1 will assess you on writing in notes and using informal language.

    Also: don't forget that you can get a magazine report here as well! I don't think there's been a talk since the 2013 june paper so there's a possibility of that coming up!

    Good luck for today!

    hi, do you know the exact marks you got for both your written coursework and your speaking and listening and would you be willing to share them pleaseee?
    Hey!

    I can't help you on that one, unfortunately. I know that I got 29/30 on the speaking but I'm not too sure on the coursework. I thought I got 36/40 and 9/10 for the other bit but I don;t think that's the case!


    Anyway, good luck for today! Hopefully the exam paper won't be hellish like last years!

    Good luck everyone! Remember, don't go into the exam set on an amount of marks you need. Try your absolute hardest and achieve the best mark that you can. Just remember to keep your bullet points balanced in your answer to question 1.

    There's no exact structure to a magazine report. I would just say that it's slightly less formal than a newspaper article (a little more subjective at points, possibly) with one paragraph per bullet point.

    Finished my paper. I live in India so I'm doing the paper (0500) which is different from what you guys are doing. We got an informal letter (remember you guys will probably get something else) and hopefully the mark scheme won't be too harsh and I kinda rushed the writer's effect :/

    For a Speech , it is almost certainly formal, however the Character's voice is crucial . You must also use RHETORIC devices.

    Hope this helps.

    Just to remind you guys, to always read the instructions carefully because SOMETIMES the passage is different to the character they want you to answer in.

    For question 2, how should you write the first effect introduction before you go into the writers effect?
