    For the second question can you do part a and b together or does it have to be separate?

    I asked my teacher this week. We thought that the way it's structured ("and then part (b)") suggests they should be separate entities. Also, they cover different assessment objectives so it's probably better to start a new paragraph and mark (b) in the margin. It'll make the examiner like you more, too, if you make it explicit where (b) begins.
    What books are you doing?

    Either. It is under one mark scheme and some people prefer to do them together as they find it fits the timings better. However, some examiners have said they prefer a and b separate so it is easier to mark

    Hiya Part A and Part B are marked together so you get a total for those two segments as a whole. However, making each section clear with a short introduction and conclusion (it doesn't have to be more than 2-3 lines long) and marking the second section with 'b)' would be clearest for the examiner, as there are slightly different criteria for each section. As far as on the page, though, I just skip a line and then write the part B introduction. I hope that helps

    If anyone is doing sunlight on the grass can you help me come up with a plan for paragraphing? Do you have to put paragraphs under themes or writing techniques such as similes? Also, in sunlight on the grass do you have to mention writing techniques or do you just talk about themes? Thanks ☺️
