    Question 1

    Question 2

    Question 3

    Question 4
    24 mins

    For question 1 you should make perceptive inferences so not the obvious points that everyone will make and you should be looking at making between 4 and 8 points depending on the detail of your points.

    For question 2 you should focus on again perceptive points so not the obvious ones and these should link to the text and you should explain their effectiveness on the reader you should be making around 4 points for these 2 for headlines and 2 for image.

    For question 3 focus mainly on feelings and not thoughts as with feelings you have a greater range of detail you can use to answer the question thus increasing the marks you get. Look at sentence length for example a long sentence without breaks makes the reader feel out of breath after reading it which creates a sense of overwhelming and short sentences create dramatic effect also structurally they attract more attention due to their shorter length.

    For question 4 you need to be perceptive and detailed again using less obvious points but also comparing the effect and reason of the device being used and evaluate the use of the device in each article, remember you can compare using:
    Same device - same effect
    Same device - different effect
    Different device - same effect
    Different device - different effect (try to avoid using this one as it doesn't really compare well)

    Hope this helps and if you have any questions feel free to PM and good luck😃
