AQA ELLB4 - Text Transformation - word count help! watch

    • Thread Starter

    So for this coursework, I'm writing two commentaries, but I'm confused on the word count. On the specification it says the total word count for the commentaries are between 1000 - 2000 words. I'm worried now because for my commentaries I did around 1900 each. Is it 1000 - 2000 words for each, or both of them together?? Thank you for any answers!


    Not sure if you still need an answer but the two commentaries must add up to no more than 2000, in other words, each will be around 1000 words (of course, one could be 900 and the other 1100)

    That is unless you are doing a combined piece, where the one commentary will then be 2000 words, but judging from how you said your commemtaries were '1900 each' I'm guessing you aren't doing a combined piece and will have to cut down.

    Also, since you're doing the same course as me, could you possibly help me with my question please?

    Thanks, and hope I helped!
