The actual sources? Or the questions?
They're very similar every year, and the first 4 questions follow this pattern:
- "What do you learn/understand about ....... from the article .... ."
- "Explain how the headline and picture, with caption, are effective and how they link to the text."
- "Explain some of the thoughts and feelings ..... has about/during ..... ."
- "Compare the ways in which language is used for effect in the two texts. Give some examples and analyse the effects."
The next 2 questions are more random:
Question 5 will always be something like "Your local newspaper has asked readers to describe/explain ..... . (or 'Write an article/blog for .... .') and it will then say something like "Describe/explain your experiences of ..... ."
Basically, you have to use descriptive writing techniques.
Question 6 will probably be asking you to persuade, inform or argue a certain point of view. For example, "Many people now .... and ..... . Argue for or against the views expressed in this quotation. Your article/blog will appear in ......"
