    Edging towards gender. Power is quite a popular choice and there is a lot to write about though

    I was originally edging towards gender but it's so hard to apply the theories for me

    I was going towards gender but they can always throw in a mens vitamin website extract like they've done once where it's difficult to apply many theorists. Probably going to go with power, technology is ugh for me.

    Same. We barely went through tech and there aren't many concepts to apply.

    If you're confident on power, go for it. If you're thinking about gender, have a look at a gender model answer graded A/B and see how they apply the theories?

    I sat this exam last year and chose that question due to time constraints. I'm resitting the exam this year.

    I found the Gender text to be easy to be honest, managed to write a lot on it and link to theories so fingers crossed.

    Ah I did power, found it alright but I would have preferred an advert/legal document or something. How did you find grouping texts? And what grade are you hoping for?

    I'm better at the theories part of the course than the grouping but I found the groupings to actually be alright. I did Spoken, Persuasive Purpose and Pragmatics - spoken and persuasive had a lot more detail however. I'm aiming for a B since English is the subject I chose just to fill the fourth AS. What about you?

    Me too usually, but for some reason I felt as though I did better in the groupings for once. Ideally an A, I did spoken, niche audiences and register.
