    Hi,
    I'm taking the new Edexcel English Language (8EN0) Specification. It's the new specification. I'm just wondering, how do I answer the essays?! I've really been stressing about this. Could somebody give me some guidance as to answering each question:

    Paper 1 - Context and Identity
    Question1: 25 Marks - Multi-Text Analysis
    Question2: 25 Marks - Single Text Analysis

    I know this is a lot, but I am REALLY struggling with what to write about and how to structure my essay!

    Thank you so much!

    Have you talked to your teacher? Have you looked at the specification?

    I checked out the specification and exemplar materials. However, I found neither to be useful in telling me how to actually answer the questions.

    I know all the knowledge required, it's simply putting all of that into a coherent essay response. I am aiming for the top band.

    Thank you for your response!

    Thanks for the response! We have done essays before, I didn't do overly well. I've checked Edexcel and there aren't any resources available to assist in essay writing & planning. I'm just wondering what other students are doing and what their teachers have suggested?
