    Hey guys,

    Did you include a conclusion in your essay?

    The word count is so small that I would have to cut a point to fit one in that would actually have meaning and not just summarise the points I've already made...

    I'm afraid I am pretty sure you will have to do a conclusion. I remember the word count being such a pain

    Thanks so much for your help! I'm already 200 words over the limit, looks like I have a lot of work ahead of me :lol:

    I can't stand AQA coursework, I got an A in my as exam and a C in the coursework and I think the same thing will happen this year, I just can't get my head around how to write it

    Coursework can be a pain! What are you doing it on?

    I think I will be in your position too! My question is
    'How does Blake use symbolism to put forward his ideas in The Tyger and The Lamb?'It's not going too badly to be that honest I love the poems because I take RS too, it's definitely the better out of my two pieces (don't even mention the comparison piece to me:ashamed:) I just struggle with wording so much! My teacher said the ideas I have are band 6, but my wording and organisation of them is band 4, so I'm always stuck on a C!

    Rather than cutting stuff out, what I do is I write everything I want and then go through at the end and try to compress everything as much as possible. That way you get to keep all your ideas and your AO1 is good as well as it looks like you can write really succintly. Go through each point and work out where you're repeating yourself and try to merge sentences together. Then go through again and compress each sentence, even by just a few words. Even if you cut down every other sentence by one word then that's still a good start in the right direction. Keep doing that and go over it with your parents or a friend and eventually you'll get down to the word limit. That's what I do and I've got an A on all 3 courseworks I've done so far
