To be honest mate I don't think it really matters. AQA were very vague in the question - I took it as an argument but a persuasive piece would also suffice. I'm going to try and find a past paper with a similar question and see what the examiner report stated.

Yeah, I agree with this.

They didn't clearly state, so it could be interpreted in different ways.

Couldve been both tbh, I argued for, but also tried to make my points persuasive, and also considering other peoples points of view.

What exactly is the difference (in terms of when actually writing your response) between persuade and argue? Different techniques? Tone?

Persuading is with your heart, arguing is with your head. So you use emotive language and back it up with opinions for persuade. For argue, you use logical and reasoned points that are based solely on fact so no opinions are addressed.

To be honest, why the **** didn't AQA just write Argue or Persuade........................ . But the question was more towards argue though. I better well be bloody expecting low down-to-the-ground grade boundaries in august...

My article was biased as hell - the opposition got a mere few lines of defence which were all counter argued. :P

I forgot the headline too, don't worry. I actually thought of the headline whilst I was writing it but I had no room to write it above my text so I just left it. Surely that doesn't matter though... it's something you'd hear in primary school.

Thanks. My response was a mix between argue and persuade then.

Oh no they are almost the same thing so don't worry. Just as long as your points are backed up by heavy statistics and not 'too' much opinion

I seem to remember saying something on the lines of:

When your precious little Jimmy has spent the sixth hour of his day on Facebook telling his mates 'rofl' and an arsenal of other appalling acronyms, it's not difficult to see why he's doing bad at school.

Every time your child 'likes' their Pringles or any other brand they are playing into a clever con.

Before polling for persuade... ask yourself a question: ''AGREE OR DISAGREE'' - Would this be an Argument or a Persuasion? Now do your poll.
