So I sat my english language aqa exam today. For q5, I chose the narrative option but my narrative didn't really have a plot, like it began with the plot already occurring and nothing really changed from then. Will I lose marks for this and, if so, how many? I feel like my actual writing in terms of language was quite good. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
Oh well for the Section B I chose the story, but I talked about a walk in the woods from people with different backgrounds, which is totally off topic from a bus. Do you think I will get marked a lot down as a result, because I was really confused, and now I am so worried.

You may get marked down a little for structure, but I did the same thing in my mocks and got 34/40 so as long as you have a generally compelling way of writing and use difference sentence structures, language etc. you should be fine :smile:

My section A was strong, so thats reassuring. However, i ran out of time for Section B, only had about 20 minutes and managed to write about 2 pages. THIS IS NOT THE WORST:frown:( i cried to my teacher, as the description was supposed to be your journey home ON the bus, i misread/didn't see this and wrotes as though i was an outsider looking in. How many marks will i lose/40, will i lose them all for not addressing the question? Is it still possible to get a 6 overall? Actually so upset right now:frown:(

What did you end up getting ?

If they didn’t reply to the same question 4 years ago I highly doubt they would reply now…
