    My commentary was dire.
    I didn't refer to any of the texts I used.
    Actually the whole thing was awful.
    It sounds like everyone that chose question 2 started to regret it halfway through.
    I was close to getting up and leaving it was going so horribly.
    No money for me on results day...

    I did question 1, radio 4 for witches all the way

    Lots of my classmates did the question 4 for dyslexia though. I did seem to write a lot (11pages) my handwriting is medium to fairly big, especially towards the end haha. I just worry it wasn't enough of a dramatisation... and my commentary was a pile of poo haha.

    Sooo glad thats over, now for change/aquisition revision xxx

    Oh you star! I'm so glad I wasn't the only one

    That activity sounds ace, I did one called "Which Witch is Which", which was to do with the witch families, and another called "Witch is the way to Pendle Hill" and I did a poster task too at the end :p:

    I had a similar problem with my commentary, I found it was very difficult to get all of the necessary info into the guide, and I ended up glossing over very important information...

    I just hope a got enough in
    Yeah it was hard to simplify a lot of the stuff as it's so complex and there are so many little details that needed to be known in order to fully understand the story.

    I just made sure that the text wasn't too patronising (something they were talking about in the examiner's report). I don't think I did too badly, but you never know what's going to happen with this exam.

    Bring on ENB6!

    We got to keep packs too.

    Haha! I know what you mean though, I regretted picking question 2 when I was too far in to change...

    On the plus though, it's only 15%... I guess that's a plus???

    That's what worried me, and I feel as if I may have fallen into that trap... But as you say, you never know with these exams... :rolleyes:

    I think i've done crap tbh - i did Question 1 like an idiot. When i got to the end i realised the ending didn't make sense because of what i'd wrote before. It was mostly narration plus putting a few scenes in for the 'dramatisation' bit.

    That's English down the pan then (unless i scrape a lot of extra marks on Thursday )

    Do you reckon this should change to the ENB6 thread now, because i'm guessing that's what will be discussed lol.

    Yeah I'd rather start posting in a new ENB6 thread, I don't feel like going through the 40+ pages on the other one.

    I have no idea what to do for Language change, acquisition is okay though I think.

    The adjudicators in our exam hall didn't really know if the packs were needed lol

    We handed ours in but one of mine was at the top and the other was somewhere near the bottom, they don't have my name on so...

    I don't think they get sent away to be honest.

    they didnt collect ours either, mine went straight in the bin - very dramatic haha.

    They won't care at all that you have written that stuff on, worst they could do if some official person saw it is to knock a couple of marks of that bit... im sure it will be fine xxxxxx
