    Hi I'm doing the WJEC English Lit. Unit 1 next week, I was just wondering about a few things...

    1) Would the examiner mind if I were to say, write quote 'An' live off the fatta the lan'' as 'And live off the fat of the land'? Is mixing up the odd word or missing one out going to make the quote invalid?

    2) If I lay out each paragraph like this - P.E.E, close analysis of quote and then put the quote into the context of 1930s America - will I get maximum marks? Or is there something I'm missing?

    Thanks for reading this far, would really appreciate some clarification.

    Heya :wavey:


    1. Probably won't penalise you for it. They could refuse to give the mark though, as part of the importance of the quote lies in the colloquial connotations.

    2. PEE is the top stylistic band for GCSE. However, to really guarantee a top mark you should subtly incorporate hints of Link into your answers. That's to say, at the end of each paragraph, point out why what you've said answers the question. It's a very important style to adopt for A level, and as marking is done on a curve essentially, if anyone else is doing it you might lose an edge.

    Rather than PEE, think PEEL.
