    I ended question 1 as "speak soon from (my name)" instead of Maria - however in the whole letter I showed that i knew I was Maria but I stupidly forgot when signing off, do you think I will get marks deducted?

    Guys in Q2 could we have talked about the husbands stubbornness and fussiness:

    "unimpressed", "complaining loudly"
    I think so, I used exactly those 2 and I also explained the adverb "loudly"

    yes as long as you used imagery and good annotations you are good, I used those two quotes but developed it of course
    I wrote about the use of 'tatty trinkets' and how he didn't like what they were selling and didn't like the town

    I got 38/40 on all 3 coursework pieces and 30/30 on S+L.

    How many marks do I need for an A or an A*?
    What is the formula for working out the marks needed for certain grades?

    I am partially concerned about the exam; question 1, 2 and 3b were all rather easy, however I soon found myself struggling to find points in question 3a. I initially only found 10/15 points and had to go out on a bit of a limb for the other 5

    I did the same as you, you're not the only one, don't worry about it. I asked a few of my English teachers about it and they said the most they would knock off was about 3 marks as long as you wrote it in the correct format and had the content.

    Speaking is out of 20 ?.

    To work it out you 0.843 x (S&L) + (CorseWork)
    -eg 0.843 x 12 = 10 + 36 = 46
    -eg C=76. 46 - 76 = for a c - 29

    HOWEVER the grades may change they can go up or down

    right guys so im really worried heres what i did
    q1) bullet point 1:
    - welcoming staff - met me at the airport and made an effort to provide me with a comfortable stay
    - exactly like the website description - tranquil, great views etc
    - impressed with the scenery etc
    -cant really remember my point
    bullet point 2:
    -husband had a bad attitude to the hotel and was rude to staff (complained about the market and thing
    -made the staff change their plans because they were dull
    -acted irresponsibly and hurt himself - injury disturbed the atmosphere of the holiday
    bullet point 3;
    -continue writing and enjoying the surroundings (she had a note pad and it said she was a talented writer?)
    -explore the town/highlights of the tour
    -write a good review of the hotel

    question 2 - focused my points arounf the idea of a 'mirage' thats only seen by those who search for it for paragraph 4 and talked about the connotations of sunlight and talked about the word 'entranced' and how it captivated the reader

    paragraph 6 - wrote about 'a rainbow of produce' because rainbows have a connotation of bringing fortune and are rare etc aand discussed the contrasting quotes like tatty trinkets etc

    question 3 i probably did all the bulllet points wrong and wrote similar ones and that

    i really wanted an A but it seems like i blew it judging by the comments
    lol i really struggled to create an effect out of mirage - i had no clue what it meant, along with a few other words. maybe i need to work on my vocab

    Can we have a separate thread for people who want to spam: "What's the grade boundary" and "How do I work out my mark".

    Anyhow.
    For "tatty trinkets", did anyone say anything like: repetition of the "t" sounds sharp/harsh on the tongue and thus reflects Mr Head's attitude and personality on the holiday. (utter s*** but possibility for marks?)

    Honestly I thought it was a hard paper with being question 1 the hardest then 3 the easiest.
    All I want is a C that's what I'm happy with but I'm not sure if I would get one ;/

    nope you don't get penalised at all for going over the word count in questions 1-2. it only matters on q3 - the summary.
