    WJEC
    2 one hour papers, reading and writing.

    Writing you can't really give tips... But reading...

    Two texts 40 marks.
    a) explain bla bla
    b) explain HOW
    c) explain HOW
    d) compare and contrast...

    :reel:
    Alright.
    I assume its kind of like ours
    A) explain what you have learnt from source 1 (8 marks)

    Probably the easiest question. It's really just reading and explaining in your own words what you've learnt. Make at least 6 points & be sure to back up your points with quotes.

    B) explain how images and (sub)headline have been used and how it links with text in source 2 (8 marks)

    Not too hard, but be sure to answer the question. Focus on presentational devices, eg colour, font of HEADLINE and be sure to link it with what the article is about. Look for specific quotes that support your claim.

    C) explain thoughts and feelings of the person/which part did you find more tense in source 3 (8 marks)

    Really focusing on language and specifically looking out for language that could be used to convey emotions etc. If colours mentioned, use it, also try and find a rhythm in what you're reading.

    Compare source how language is used in source 3 and one other source (16 marks)

    This one is all about language, and how techniques are uses to fit certain peieces of writing, eg, language used in a leaflet would be different to that used in a magasine. Analyse language, and compare language as well as why they are suited for their purposes.

    Sorry if this is a bit vague. Kind of in a rush, and let me know if the questions are completely different. Because thats the setup of the AQA exams.

    My paper was like the one above. I didn't even properly attempt the reading. I think I must have got all the marks for the writing section. In my June resit I had to write a blog post (I have read countless blog posts, I was amazing at it) and I also recall writing a long argument about why Justin Bieber is a bad role model and Lady Gaga is a good one...

    Is anyone else being re-entered for their CIDA GCSE? I got a notice today saying that they thought it had been harshly marked and they wanted me to do about 3 hours extra work so it can be re-submitted?

    5a isn't too hard.
    You're told y = f (x) and told to find solutions for f(x) = 1, so if y = 1, what would any solutions of x be?

    Same logic for the second bit.


    B. These are translations and transformations of the graph,

    Yeah, you'd use the graph since they've stated figure 1 shows a graph of y=f(x)

    And what would I do to the graph since y=1 I was thinking of moving it down to y on y axis or adding one to everything?

    You're looking at it wrong.
    y = f(x),
    f(x) = 1,
    Therefore y = 1.

    What would x be when y = 1?
    5a isn't a translation.
