    Who is a expert on the mark scheme here and knows how it works like e.g. if I asked a question about how many marks would I get if I wrote 1 paragraph etc (assuming its top quality) or something like that?

    I remember the part about should stay in the UK and not do unnecessary expenses to go on holiday in different countries.

    Good! Same, timing was really hard and i had to write until the last second. Well done for finishing the questions - that guarantees a good grade (unless you wrote about cupcakes for all the questions lol). And for question 6 I agreed with the statement. I just talked about all the disadvantages about travelling abroad i.e.
    grieving children in poorer countries, the expense, dangers travelling

    My 'for' points were:
    - for all that Britiain gives us, we should give the same back (spend money on shops n stuff)
    - other positive descriptions of britain (can't remember them)
    a counter argument was that staying spending your holiday in Britain at home is boring, but then I said that you don't need to actually stay indoors - you can have an adventure.
    I can't remember really what I did but I used a lot of techniques like expert opinion, stats, emotive lang, simile etc so i should be alright

    And you?

    don't know exactly but it said that staying in Britain for a holiday is better than the uncertainties and cost of travelling abroad

    I don't think you lose a lot of marks but form is very important on the mark scheme. A lot of people forgot to sign of the letter with 'yours faithfully' but I'm sure you'll be fine.:emo:
