    Hi, Im in Y.10 and We are going through our third controlled assessment where we have to pick a movie scene and go of on a tangent and describe the rest of the scene. So basically pick a movie scene and creatively write the rest of the scene. I can't think of anything I easily got A* in my Shakespeare which is regarded as the hardest but with this it's doing my head in!! Does any1 have any useful ideas to share please and any tips cos I really want to nail an A* in this one like I did with the Shakespeare. So yeah Ideas and tips and skills to get an A* thanks everyone

    I would suggest my ideas to you.
    However, you copying them would account for plagiarism. And THAT I will have you know, can result in you being disqualified from all further examination on the board. Mm hmh.

    Anyway, have fun honey!
    Alas, Earwax

    I thought plagiarism was like when you copy bits of text and call it yours a simple idea isn't.

    Well, actually, you didn't expressly get an A* for your Shakespeare, you got Band 5 - which is completely different. It depends what mark you got really - I got 40/40, but things like 33 might be A rather than A*.

    And just write. Honestly, the best way to practice for this is to do similar things and just write about them, maybe posting them on internet forums for critiques and the like.
