    How are you revising for French?
    Um well I've done all the past papers so I'm just going through a CGP book, SAM Learning*, Linguascope*, and the vocab booklet which is in the AQA specification

    Very decent analysis and excellent use of historical context. I'd say the start is more than a little waffly though - there are way too many unnecessary sentences there which will likely kill the time you have available to write it. I'd likely give that an A, A* if made more concise.

    Thanks so much which. Bits would you say are waffley?

    I'm frantically trying to motivate myself to revise. How do you guys motivate yourselves?

    I worked pretty hard for the January exams (I had 6) and came away with 3 A*s and 3 As yet I can't seem to get the work ethic inside of me going.

    "J.B Priestley uses ‘An Inspector Calls’ written in 1946 butset back in 1912 to voice his socialist views about how he feels the world would develop after world war two and as a warning that if the ruling classes do notchange their selfish beliefs we could see another war happen, which was very topical at the time written with the invention of the atomic bomb."

    Not relevant to the question. It's specifically asking what Mr Birling and Sheila have learnt, not what was Priestley's view on Political Ideology. You could link it to their lesson at the conclusion but I don't think it's appropriate for the start.

    "The play is centred on the Birling family whom we see each breakdown with the arrival of the elusive character of the Inspector who has arrived to make each member learn oftheir mistakes."

    It isn't necessary to introduce the play, since the examiners are fully aware that the play is based on the Inspector and the Birling Family. You'd be wasting time writing this part in the exam.

    "This essay will focus on the two protagonists Mr Birling and Sheila Birling and how their characters develop in the play and what they are taught by the Inspector."

    This is what my ex English Teacher calls a posh cough. Don't state what you're going to do, just do it! It's just repeating the question.
