    Guys omg I just realised that for Q5 you were meant to write it as a letter. If you forgot to put dear sir / madam and yours sincerely will you lose a lot of marks if it is still well written could I get at least 12/16
    Omg I never wrote it as an letter either 🙃

    noo not at all:/ do you think I'd get about 5 marks at least?
    I'm sure you'd get more than 5 depending on how you've written, if you've used all techniques etc you should be able to get over 9 marks or at least 10 marks hopefully so I'm sure you won't lose many marks as once in my mock I couldn't finish it off but still received 10 marks for how I wrote and techniques used.

    I didn't write it as a letter either, and I wrote it in a bit of a more informal style!! Do you think I'll lose loads of marks? Also how much is the controlled assessment worth?

    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 ****

    hahaa, thinking about it now I phrased it well but only used about 2 language feautures - it took me so long to think of anything that had 'pushed my limits' that i had no time to actually write about it... so I'm guessing I didn't do too welll

    i've just realised that I included barely any language features - my writing was sophisticated and had emotive language and short sentences but had little else as far as I can remember... ****

    Yes, it said write a letter to the newspaper talking about a time you pushed yourself to the limit and overcame it, and how it affected you

    What did everyone put for question 4? I wrote about studying for exams and went all meta but everyone I have spoke to has wrote about physically pushing limits

    Oh no I think I messed up question 6. I argued for staying in uk and not travelling abroad 🙄😫 did anyone else do this? Have I lost the marks?
    I did to, as far as I know it doesn't matter what side you pick

    Wasn't question 5 a newspaper article? Yes it was. It's an article called 'off your limits' or something. I'm not sure as to whether it was a letter or newspaper article.

    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 :'(
    Don't worry, I did the same thing but I read the question and it asked for techniques in the title, picture AND sub-headline
