I always find it different to think of something to write about in an iGCSE English exam.
Some of the exam topics to pick from are quite generic, for example:
- write a story in which it ends with the words 'It was over'
- Describe an embarrassing situation
- Describe a frightening place
- Argue for or against the idea that 'There is no place like home'
- 'We should always help others in need. There is never an excuse not to help' Discuss this point of view
Which one is the best one to pick?
In the exam, I normally go blank and it takes a little while to think of something to write about. What is the best way to plan for the exam or any writing exam revision advice?

Do any of these story lines follow any genres you have been studying, anything so that you know what kind of techniques to use whilst writing because that might help you if you blank. I would try and come up with ideas for each one otherwise and decide each one would be easiest for you in the exam. If you know a basic story line already you can elaborate further in the exam but you can already have an outline. Don't know if this helps. I always like to have some guidelines to follow so I can quickly write down the outline and add deails and technique once I have a whole story.Last edited by OMGhelpmeplease; 03-05-2016 at 19:35.
