    I have just been introduced to GCSE's at school. We are having a Spanish writing exam on Monday and If we want we can put it forward for our GCSE's which I want to do. So I was wondering what would I have to include in it to get a high grade. The writing exam is about holidays and at the moment I have included past, future, conditional and present tense and I have included opinions. is there anything else you recommend adding?

    much thanks

    I am in year ten, and did my French GCSE two years early (in year 9) and got an A*, and I am now learning Spanish for the first time ever so I am no expert, however, from doing French, I know which things get you the good marks. In your writing, aim to have all of these at least once: four tenses at least (in my French I had 6 or 7 tenses I think - the more the merrier), a negative, opinions, comparatives, qualifiers, changes in subject - not always 'I', use 'we' or 'he', complex sentence structure, complex vocabulary - if you take away one thing from this answer, let it be this: use as many tenses as possible. They bump up your grade easily. This probably wasn't very helpful, but good luck!
