    Nah, she hates her husband. Her husband is the 'pain in her neck' due to him being gone she can now go to all the other places previously mentioned.
    So would I be marked down? :/
    The text was confusing...

    I am sure you've done great, and I totally agree; it is very difficult to get 15/15 - I only ever managed it once in a mock. The examiners always find it necessary to throw us a few curve balls with what seems to be the simplest question on the paper!

    For the trees laced with sunlight I put that they the warmth was ingrained within it, representative of the fact that separation between the two was impossible is this okay?

    Exactly, now I'm hearing of how she could have went to the animal sanctuary etc. when I thought she going to the hospital to pick up her husband and go to the airport meaning she couldn't have done any other stuff, which has cost me bullet point 3 basically.

    I talked about how the husband was in hospital as part of BP2 to show that I knew he was in hospital. However, I tried to mention the husband as little as I could in BP3 because I felt as though the whole point of BP3 is talking about what she would do now that her husband is gone/ before she picks up her husband.

    Correct me if I am wrong

    For q2 I used the quotes 'white washed' as its an alliteration and said it suggests delicateness and how its peaceful as white is associated with angels etc.

    I used the orange thing tree lol and said how life needs sunlight and that nature is becomes enticed by the sunlight etc

    This was all written much better in the exam hahahaha so is this all ok?

    Problem with me is I describe instead writing in all the good facts. As in I feel like I only really said a few points where I could have said so many more ugh

    You know it's someone's bees-ness when #iGCSEenglish is trending worldwide on twitter.
    Hopefully they're gonna lower the grade boundaries because of this.

    Is it true that you cannot get an a* in this exam?
    I heard this actually! Apparently you can only get an A and the rest is reliant on coursework...
