    My teacher said that the texts will likely be based on class division in society as well - Like rosabel and her fury for the red haired hat girl

    I believe the two extracts are meant to be on a topic that affects young people - which would mean class division shouldn't be there.

    Possibly, but it's AQA so they could throw anything at us!

    You should include language and structural analysis and the message in Q4 and in Q5 it is likely to be a debate speech or newspaper article. Just know who you're talking too and use persuasive devices.

    How do you layout your answer to Q4 ??? Like what do you write in paragraph 1, 2, 3 and so on ....
    Compare how the writers convey their different atritudes/views.... ( 16 marks )
    Also, how much should we write ??? Like how many paragrahs and pages ???

    It may sound stupid but for the first question, do we shade the whole box or just the oval or does it not matter? Also, are you guys using any techniques like PEE, etc to help you with the layout of questions 1-4 and lay the foundation for question 5?

    Just shade what it tell you to; sometimes it can say "shade the oval" or "shade the box" so look out for that!

    For question 4, I would 2 PEEs. After your point and quotes, just keep flushing out the writers message and all that. If you write around 1 1/2 - 2 pages you're safe - obviously if it's good.
