    Question 2

    Para 4 general effect is beauty and there is a sense of awe?

    Phrase(roughly): orange trees laced with sun- metapharical phrase showing beauty of sun etc lace is a soft word links to the embroidered gown or weddings i dont even know

    Gifted writer :she is talented

    Entranced: hs is mesmerized stood in awe and speechless

    I forgot tge rest of what i was gonna type but here is an idea
    The quotes I used was the one about sandy roads and the one about the white washed walls and orange trees being laced by the sun for part a

    For part b I used 'tatty trinkets' and the rainbow of produce and sourced ingredients.

    Hello, apparently you had to start in a specific way... i completely missed this!
    How many marks would i lose?
    You don't loose any marks for starting your own way, unless it is not in the format of a letter. They give you a starter, but it's your choice wheather you choose to start that way or not 😊

    Honestly, that was one of the harder papers I've done, especially question 2. While question 1 had scores of information to draw on, question 3 was somewhat vague and I'm pretty sure I merged points which should have been singular.

    They won't read it if you didn't put at the end of the question of the original lines (see additional pages) or something along those lines. Maybe they will if they're feeling nice though!
    No don't worry you don't have to write that
    You should be fine

    Who used the extra space provided at the back cuz I used it I don't know if the examiner will see it though. And who else put a signature for Maria? Do you get credit for that?
    I think you'll get credit for signing it off because it's you acknowledging the fact it's a letter - and the examiner will see the additional pages, they'll make sure to check everything

    For the pain in my neck bit I wrote 'Little did he know the pain in my neck was my husband' would that be counted as a mark?

    Don't worry they will 100% read it as long as you put the question number that you continued from! We had the chief examiner for the paper in at school and she said any additional papers and booklets are scanned in and the examiner isn't allowed to submit your mark without viewing them first

    Do you know how many marks you needed to get a B? That's all I'm aiming for now, seeing as I signed off as myself in the exam😥
    Well, grade boundaries change all the time. For us it was 84 for a B which was slightly lower than previous s years ( I think 2014 was like 106 for an A* - sure, it's not a big difference, but still)

    For you, you would only need 15 to get an B. However, your exam might have been harder or equally easier. Hopefully you'll be fine

    Only 3 people got A*s in our school so I presume they are really strict with marking - I was 4 marks of an A* :'(

    looks good although it was said iirc that they were going to pick him up from the hospital, it was only some light bruising, so there's no need to visit, rest of your points look good mate
    Phew Thanks for the advice that made me a lot less anxious

    What did you write about these quotes? Because I used them as well but I don't think I explained them properly.
