    Well done guys, did you write too much to get this grade because I always feel I can not write too much.

    I got a B on the exam, I think that you should just make sure that you ace the comprehension (Section A) , try to get as many marks as possible there. In Section B, try to use as many references from the two texts. Section C I suck at it so.... but do the one you are best at and practice it.

    Practice past papers and look at the mark schemes Fadim. There are about 8 papers I think. It's worth the work, trust me! I really believe that I got my A* because I meticulously studied them and knew how to respond to the questions properly. I knew what they were expecting.

    For Section B: write quite 'pally' and informally. Write as though you are talking to your school mates because you are. Just don't use slang etc. Use humour and show off! Lively responses get the most marks!

    Cover all 3 bullet points equally (use 3 highlighters for both the texts and use a different colour that relates to each of the 3 bullet points. Highlight all the info before you get writing section B. Takes about 15 minutes. Don't rush the highlighting. Do what the question is asking you. Highlight accordingly so you refer back to what you've highlighted and respond to each bullet point as you go along. It keep you on track for section B.

    Check out Mr Bruff on YouTube. He was a godsend!

    For section C, check out Mr Salles on YouTube and have a look at his creative writing videos. He explains what examiners look for no matter what exam board you're with.

    Good luck!

    I did this exam last year and got an A*. What really helped me was that I had a few story lines in mind for Section C so that I could adapt one of the 3 title options to it. Thankfully, one of the titles fit perfectly so the exam went well for me. I was also so worried about running out of time that I went through the exam really quickly and ended up with an hour to spare! I went over everything and checked my work at the end. For section B, I went over the rules for writing letters, speeches etc by watching revision videos on YouTube so I felt prepared for whatever I had to write. Good luck in the exam! I hope you get the grade you want

    Thank you Mols99 that's very useful. I've done a few past papers and am using youtube videos to help me. I need a C or above in this exam so any help would be massively appreciated as there seems to be a limited amount online.
