Hey guys, I’m a private student doing the above qualification and I would really appreciate it if someone can answer me the followings:

1. The new exam seems to put much emphasis on linguistics features, with linguistics terms such as hyperbole, syntax filling the mark scheme. Do they still give credits to literary analysis such as schools of criticism / characterisation / interpretation of the events (e.g. Wuthering Heights: Heathcliff’s name originated from a dead son indicates the potential of belonging to the Earnshaw family)?

2. I've read some of the mark schemes and exemplar works of the old specifiation. But they are just confusing as they used a different mark scheme. So for my exam, should I always start with one key event/moment and analyse it in a paragraph (and add in some contexts and connections with other text where possible)?

3. For connections across texts, can I compare within the text itself (i.e. different poems in the anthology)?

Thank you so much guys!
