I reckon it went 'alright'. Q1 i made some good inferences, Q2 i analysed a good amount, Q3 my points were bad, Q4 i first failed on but then corrected towards the end (So should be fine!), Q5 was a nice bit of descriptive writing and Q6 was decent How did you all think you did?

you know when it's just really hard to tell?? I didnt leave enough time for section B though, Q6 especially had like non-existent structure but I'm hoping it went okay... Just glad I never have to do English again tbh ahah

it was easy lol, but Q5 weren't you supposed to write to argue? Because my friend wrote to persuade, for what reason I don't know

I did the higher paper and missed Q3; I just didn't leave myself enough time. What do you think? I've achieved A's and B's in my controlled assignments.

Did anyone mention anything about metaphors in source 3 for question 4? I think I might have done something wrong...

I literally had to rush every question to keep up with the timings. ugh.

I still couldn't keep up and had little time to complete question 6.

I didn't even know what I was writing half the time.. probably all BS tbh hahah

Was that the question where you had to compare language features, and what effect it had?

If you compared source 1+3 they used the identical simile about a magnet

I defo failed. For question 5, I wrote about New York but wrote about culture and the Broadway musicals and how no one understands my love for New York which isn't describing!!!!!!!!!!!!
For question 6, i argued against the statement and talked about Malala Yousafzai and her work for charity. But idk if that's right since it said young people from developed countries?!
The sources were all so similar wtf

Source 2 and 3 had lots of imagery, but it was annoying how there were tons of rhetorical questions is source 2 and nothing in source 3, their was onomatopoeia in source 3 but non in source two, how frustrating, but there were lots of adjectives, and direct address pronouns in both the sources

It was to write about a place, where the images stuck to your mind and you couldn't forget about it, something like that.
