Yo! I need help on how to answer the last 2 questions.....what is it that you actually need to show? For instance the November 2014 paper tells you to :
'Describe a memorable event from your school days and explain why it has remained unforgettable' , but what should I say if I have no memorable events, well at least no events that are exactly 'clean' for marking...
Looking at the mark scheme it says you have to included complex vocabulary and engage the reader and communicate in a way that is convincing etc but what does that actually mean? Thanks for any help

Then frankly you will have to make one up, at the end of the day nobody is going to check if you actually LIVED through your memorable event. The key bit is where it asks you to DESCRIBE the event and then to EXPLAIN why it's still memorable to this day.
Working on both of those different formats will net you maximum marks. Be sure to go into the exam fully aware of the distinction between the two and how to answer in both of those types of writing effectively. As the question is being generous by allowing you to gain marks for describing and then explaining. Not just one or the other in my old exam.
Best of luck and best regards, i hope this helped!
