    Was a report required for the higher tier... I see it was for foundation tier but erm my sister sat the higher and said she never realised it was a report but being it was a higher paper I'm wondering whether it was still a report or not ?! She got As on all her assessments and now she's in tears because she may have messed up due to not reading the question correctly. She explained she highlighted the keywords in the question (all questions) and referred back to it several times.
    Thanks in advance

    Yep, the first question was a speech and the second was a report. That's unlucky for your sister.

    She wrote a letter to students why a plum.... It's ok this year she can still forward all her assessments and retake in November so she just needs to improve her exam technique.... It's a lesson we all have to learn she just learnt it at the wrong time.... I've told her crying won't solve the problem nor will self pitying you messed up you have one more chance to fix it so dry your eyes and get back to your desk....

    Leaving her to allow self pitying is probably the worst thing we can do because she'll just feel defeated and worthless by doing another past paper she can reassure herself that she is capable and that this was just bad luck...:

    Thanks again

    No offence dude, but the SEN kid in my class seen that it was a report. No worries anyway. Now that you speak of good CA's and at least a decent attempt on the reading paper? Im sure it is a moderate B. If not a high C

    What's a SEN kid?!
    Thank you!!! I've seen the picture of the question page on Twitter and shown her it and she said she didn't see it.. Or she might have skimmed it either way she didn't write a report and that's tough, she said she would've written a good report and it would've been easier than trying to write a stern to the point letter.... Hopefully she'll scrape through but she's not holding her breath... Lots of wine for August 25th

    SEN kid is a person with learning difficulties, basically a less able student.
    Can you link the twitter post please

    It's for the foundation but it's essentially the same question.

    I'm assuming she'll lose all marks for that wuestion regardless because it's not a report...

    For the unit paper I made the biggest mistake analyzing the wrong text for 15 minutes then realizing so I had to rush it so much spending olny roughly 10 minutes on each question.
    But it's a good thing I found out could've lost me 10 marks.



    Btw tell your sister not to sweat it too much for the report,I know she deserved those top grades but she'll probably come out with a pass because there was loads of people in my school not knowing how to set out a report and a lot of people did stuff like a formal informal letter and review. About 15 people told me this happened to them and I'm sure there's many more so I'll tell you not alone .
