    Don't worry bro you brought me down at the start saying my point is silly as i made a mistake when i was writing it up but then cheered me up by taking a look at the actual work i produced , now let me do the same we will pass if we get near to 72 marks which is very possible im sure you will have done great in the essay question , the descriptive writing and we still have paper 2 left so aim to not mix up for that paper ! :P

    For the essay question as one of the points as to why you agree did you use the fact that she wasn't wanting to join her friends , ask for help while digging to prove her self.

    Yes , at the start i made 3 points 1 about pathetic fallacy/personification and one about verbs and one about adjectives the extract was really limiting on what you could pull out .

    is this for the new 9-1 specification or the old A*-G one? I did really poorly in my paper 1 which brought my result down to a 7. I was wondering if there are any resit opportunities next year assuming it's the 9-1 spec.

    Do you reckon violent verbs is 1 as it contrasts with the use of the positive adjectives.
