    Hi, in exam paper 2, IGCSE English First Language 0522 for CIE , on question 2 it says: "Select four powerful words or phrases from each paragraph. Your choices should include imagery. Explain how each word or phrase selected is used effectively in the context."

    Do you have to write in paragraphs?

    I just listed the quote and underneath it I explained it using the LICE technique (Literal meaning, Implicit meaning, Connotations and Effect on reader). After doing one quote I then listed the second quote and did the same. Is this allowed because my teacher stated in her powerpoint to "Treat each of your choices separately and do not present them as a list"?

    No, I'm sure somewhere it states only to write one page for Question 2 because you only spend 30 minutes on that question (because its worth less marks.) It is split into question 2 a and question 2 b - you have to find 4 words or phrases (with one imagery) for both a AND b so you'd run out of time writing a paragraph for 8 phrases. One paragraph for 2a (4 phrases) one paragraph for 2b (4 phrases) hope this helps
