Hi,
I have written my answer to Q4 in paper 2, could you mark this and let me know what went well and how I can improve.
This is only 1 paragraph, so in the exam i would have to write 3 of these. Can you just let me know if i did 3 of these paragraphs what i would get.

For this question, you need to refer to the whole of Source A, together with
Source B, the father’s letter to a family friend.
Compare how the two writers convey their different attitudes to parenting and
education.
In your answer, you could:
 compare their different attitudes
 compare the methods they use to convey their attitudes
 support your ideas with references to both texts.
[16 marks]


Although both sources resolves around parental relationships, both have completely different attitudes concerning education. The parent in source A uses humour to express his relaxed and unstressed attitude to education: “remorselessly take the mickey out of you” emphasises that his son is able to treat his father in a friendly manner and this also eradicates any tension or respect from the son. The use of the colloquial language of “mickey” heightens that the father does not see himself as a superior and someone that has to be treated with respect; the father’s attitude to his son evokes the sense of equality in the relationship. Additionally, the adverb “remorselessly” can imply that the son teases his father on a regular basis and that the son feels no guilt or sadness. On the other hand the father in source B contradicts this easy-going attitude through the use of his formal language which creates an authoritarian tone. The father doubts his son’s accusations and creates a generalisation by conveying “Boys will sometimes complain without cause”, this leads to the fact that the father believes that he is always correct and does not have faith in his sons. This impacts the contemporary audience as it is unusual for parents to act in this manner, and it leads us to question why parents in the 19th century would be so pessimistic towards their sons.

Probably, if there is anything in your explanation that might have some differences listed, then you might get a couple of marks. Sorry for the late reply.

I would say around 12 marks. Your answer is good with very detailed interpretations however you would need to write another paragraph comparing another aspect such as structure, perspective focus, tone, etc in order to show a more detailed understanding of the texts. Grade 7 answer

I would say bottom of level 4 (grade 7-8) because you have included multiple techniques such as 'colloquial language' and 'adverbs' etc but I believe you may need to write more as 1 paragraph for a 16 mark question is definitely not enough to gain you full marks. Maybe try writing 2-3 or maybe 4 paragraphs next time if you are aiming for the full 16 marks. I would give it 13/16 maximum .
