    (Original post by johnhall027)
    **** i did the same !! does that mean i wont get any credit for my 'shoots' interpretation. fs i only did 2 paragraphs for question 4 loool
    As long as your analysis of headline and image are pretty good, then you should only lose like 2/3 marks if it's marked equally for the headline, image and sub-headline.
    looooooooool, same, i was ripping people who didn't wanna travel outside great britain pretty bad

    omg literally the same, only did two paragraphs, i dunno man, there are some people on here saying that you're allowed to analyse the sub-headline, but the question did say 'texts' but IDKKKK, imma have to ask my teacher, he's gonna be pissed

    does anyone know how many marks you can get on question 5 if you don't actually answer the question? i meant to write about getting lost and how it pushed me to my limit finding my way back but i never actually wrote about limits and only wrote about getting lost,not finding my way back cos i ran out of time...basically my question 5 was just describing me getting lost. i didn't explain anything either, would i get any marks?aha

    reckon grade boundaries will be higher or lower than last year?
    I feel as though the grade boundaries will stay the same since it didn't change from 2014; I'm not exactly sure. What d'you think?

    You've answered the first part of the question about describing what pushed you off your limits but did you write about how it affected you in anyway?

    i swear grade boundaries went down one mark in 2015 cos it was 58 marks for an A* in 2014, and 57 marks for an A* in 2015?

    I really don't want it to go above 57 marks for an A*, but I think a lot of people found this exam alright, so they may go up.

    Hoping that they don't have the goddamn nerve to raise it to 61/80 like they did in 2012, cos some b*tches may get hurt

    as long as you've used creative techniques in describing what happened. You will for sure get some marks, dunno how many and dunno how many you've lost. but content isn't as important as your use of techniques.

    But then again, i could be chattin a lot of ****

    I don't think it'll change tbh, it should stay as 57 to get an A*

    How did everyone find it?

    I found that my time keeping f*cked up completely
    I had enough time to finish question 6, but I found that I still didn't write enough (one side and a paragraph)
    Also question 4 I accidentally analysed 'shoots' in the Bear Grylls source, which I'm not sure is allowed because it was in the sub-headline?

    And question 3 is always a misery :'(
    Chill, it did say in Q3 that use the sub headline, headline and picture
