    I don't know TBH, I sat it with no clue as to what I was doing as I'd missed so much school before hand. I got a 9 though 😂 all I can say is do what you think is best, that's what I did ahah

    Hiya,

    I'd say watch Mr Bruff's, Mr Salles' or even Stacey Reay's videos, they contain a lot of useful tips and advice! My teacher also gave me some pointers for each question which have been compiled by an examiner so I'll share them below, credits to them!

    Question 2: Make sure you identify clear differences/similarities between the text - you should be able to infer meaning. You must infer otherwise you would be limiting yourself. Check the question focus - read the question!
    Question 3: Focus on comments on the effects of language. Explore in detail the effect of specific words and phrases. Make sure the analysis is in context.
    Question 4: Comment on methods. Engage with a wider variety of methods. Comparison needs to be explicit.

    I hope this helps you in some way!

    Hi,

    I highly recommend visiting 'Mr Salles Teaches English' channel. He does a how to get 100% on each question. He also does a language ebook on amazon full of examples. I found using his structure sent me from a C grade to getting a 9!
    Hope it helps you too
