I have an English Language AQA iGCSE Paper 1 mock exam tomorrow (it's most likely going to be the exam from June 2014 I think)
I need some help on my analysis skills- what types of questions usually come up and how do you answer them? (Like for instance, in History our teacher told us a specific structure we should try to follow- for the 4 marker we need 4 points DESCRIBING, 6 marker is 2 points backed with evidence EXPLAINING, and for the 10 marker we need 2 sides and a conclusion- JUDGING. Is there something like this for English?)
What things do I need to consider when thinking about writers' techniques and stuff like that?


Also, for the second half, I always do the story. I write a lot in my own time, and so this is easy for me- I'm good at thinking of ideas and coming up with characters etc. However, our teacher has told us all to AVOID the story because it takes to long, and I admit this is likely to be a bit of a problem for me. How can I ensure I don't go off on a tangent and manage to complete the story in time?


Please help, particularly with analysis skills, because I'm really worried!

Thanks
