    THIS IS MY VERY FIRST DRAFT SO I DONT EXPECT THIS TO BE IMMACULATE PLEASE CHECK WHAT I HAVE DONE WELL + IMPROVE UPON + GRADE SO FAR (GCSE LEVEL BTW)

    The Accident
    Deep down, I didn't know what had happened! In a flash of a second, my life had transformed from promising to an absolute disaster.
    Meanwhile, I preferred to be alone, in the dark, gloomy shadows which had all but been attractive to me. It was who I was as a person. But we should just get to the point. My name is Navid, I study at the University of Manchester and everything happened 6 months ago.

    As I merely started University a week ago, I felt at the top of the game of life. I had it all. Subsequently, leaving home was one of the easiest moments, I ever had to do. You heard me right, my family had mistreated me, ever since I was merely a child but it didn’t stop me from achieving what I have in life. Every night I studied in darkness, so much it becomes the usual reality for me. That was until I received the letter, finding out that I could join one of the most prestigious medical schools in the world. From a child, being told you would never be bright enough, to a medical student studying at the University of Manchester.

    Immediately, I made friends in Manchester, my best friend was Stefan – he was the son of a wealthy real estate owner in London. Whenever, he asked about where I was from I uttered with assertiveness “…I’m from West London”. Yet the truth is, I wasn’t from West London I was born and bred in a terraced house opposite a one stop on the less attractive side of Middlesbrough. At that time, all I wanted was to live a life that was worth living, after all I have been through surely I deserve at least this?

    Before very long, I always used to bump into a girl almost everyday whilst walking into the lecture halls. Silently, she smiled with her pearl-white teeth glistening to the heavy sun beating down. Incautiously, she planted one foot onto the unsatisfying-grey tarmac ground of the car park until … CRASH! SCREECH! BANG! Windows hesitantly, shattered like crystal snowflakes covering the ground like a transparent sheet of see-through paper. Shattered. On the floor, lying (with limited movement); it was the girl. Only to realise, I was in the car. I killed her.

    Your detail and setting is good, but in the last paragraph things seem to not make much grammatical sense and while I get what you're trying to do it starts to sound a bit sporadic. The rest is nice though

    What grade do you think this would be roughly?

    Possibly a C or a B? I generally make a point of only giving feedback rather than grades because I'm not trained on the mark schemes
