    So I was going through my AQA English Language assessment resources and making sure I'm prepared (totally not :cry:) but I had a look around their A Level paper, not AS and I saw this. Basically in English Language you have to analyse meanings and representations in certain texts, usually the first one is a forum of some sort. TSR is one of the texts I could be analysing, it made its way on this specimen paper lol.

    Check this out! http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/resource...-77021-SIN.PDF

    Imagine if I had to annotate around my own thread and be like, "Rhythmical is a grumpy user and always complains about her threads. Here she uses the personal pro noun 'I'm,' in every thread to express her feelings and make it personal and intimate." I'd find that so weird. Reminds me of the time I analysed Mumsnet for my mock in December, they are such whinges on that forum, they were moaning about school proms and the language was dreadful.

    Beware guys, one of your threads could be making it's way inside my question paper! :rofl:

    But somehow made it's way onto an A Level examination paper! :rofl: If you look at the first screenshot there is something about men and women committing crimes and how men commit more crimes lol. It's a study resource. xD I want to analyse an Awesome Genius thread because it's filled with controversy I'd be balling it in with so much to write about!
