English GCSE can tackled with blagging and bull****, should all else fail. As long as you can reasonably back it up, you can make any point you want, within reason.

Hmm. I think you may be a troll. People may say I'm too quick on calling this, but you seem trollish.
If you are not of Troll breed, then I wouldn't worry about trying to get a better grade in English, it looks like you wont be getting a C anyway.

The extract shows that Jane has got long hair. This is shown when the author/writer/whoever explains "Jane wrapped her extensive hair into a bun to keep it out of the way". The word 'extensive' gives the impression of great length, which is further implied by her ability to form a bun from it, which requires a substantial amount of hair to begin with.
A little like that

Enjambment is also used to great effect in “Island Man”, particularly before the line “he always comes back” to emphasise the phrase which is demonstrative of the Island Man’s powerlessness in his situation – it is inevitable he will remain in London
On the other hand, the Island Man is peaceful and more resigned to his situation. This is especially shown in “steady breaking and wombing” where the created word “wombing” creates a sense of warmth and security like that felt by a foetus, showing how the Island Man is returning back to the place of his birth in his dreams. It also conveys his steady slow contented breathing while he sleeps, showing how happy dreaming of his island makes him. More literally, it symbolises the ebb and flow of the tide as it breaks on the rocks and re-forms.
Generally, you want your point to be very brief: a general summation of what you will proceed to say. Then a relevant quote. Then explore the impact and effect, with more close language analysis (so more evidence) to build upon this.

i found this somewhere n it really helped + some of the users points in the thread
point ~ the writer shows/does/writes about...'
evidence ~ quote/word/part of a quote 'for example.../for instance'
explain ~ 'here this creates the impression this emphases/this shows (effect on reader then effect on you - opinion)
i may have structured it wrong to make it look unclear, but it's really helped me.
