    Since our GCSEs are upcoming in a few months, I thought it would be beneficial to myself and others to discuss the English Language creative writing section. For anyone doing their GCSEs in 2017 with the AQA exam board (or even other exam boards) we could discuss potential themes that the creative writing question could revolve around. From then, we could help one another prepare a few stories so we are ready for our exam! Does anyone have any suggestions on which kind of question they're likely to ask? (e.g. Create the opening of a story that describes an area with extreme weather conditions)
    It's unfortunate that we are the first to do this new spec so we don't have much to base it on. However, if people could formulate a few types of questions like this, then we can create stories that encompass a variety of questions and ace that exam!

    research universal human experiences and write about one of them within the question, it helps a lot to base the story on something emotional, something that will make the examiner want to read it and not just mark it.

    Yeah, I agree and something emotional could fit into many themes. I'd suggest writing one very gothic story and one very joyful and euphoric story.

    I've seen most of your posts and you seem to try to trick/ get people to tell you what was in their mock exams, so you can cheat, and you ask for a lot of 2016 papers...

    It will not be beneficial to you if you try to ask for mock exam questions/ trying to cheat.
