    My paper 1 english exam is on the 16th of may and im seriously struggling and can't get the grasp, of section A and the description in section B. It also doesn't help all my GCSE's are starting and i haven't done any revision yet so i'm panicing. So any hints or tips would be greatly apreciated

    Section A - In the exam, just make 10 points with evidence, 1 point + evidence = 1 mark. Do this for each question - make sure you're switching from the general to the specific aswell.

    Section B- Description - Write clearly and coherently, with a logical structure (from general to specific, or from left to right or as time passes etc.) and get an original point of view (eg. a person, or animal). And use lots of adjectives.

    Story - memorize one you've written before, ensuring its written really well. Providing the story isn't to bizarre, you shouldn't have any problem adapting to one of the titles/beginnings/endings given in the exam. Also, make sure the story has a climax (be it at the middle, end or beginning).

    I've got this exam on the 16th May too.

    I can always see the obvious stuff its reading in between the lines that i can't get. Im doing foundation tier so i need 7 or 8 out of the 10 and i struggle to get it.
