Help desperately needed for English language 9-1 edexcel watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I'm quite worried about English language. To start off, I find it really difficult to do the creative writing section b question, on both papers 1 and 2. I still find it difficult to use writing techniques. Our teacher gave us this acronym for different techniques, daforrestpie but tbh it doesn't really work for me. The evaluate questions are a hell to answer, I don't know how to evaluate. I find myself analysing it instead and I just don't know what to do. Also I want to know, exactly how many language and structure points should you do for the 'how does the writer engage the reader using language and structure?' questions (they're worth 6 marks on paper 1). And do you need more for the 15 mark one on paper 2? What exactly should you write about for these questions in general? I get 6's but I reallllllyyyyy want to get an 8. I'm currently having my mocks, tomorrow is my last one and it's English language. I'll be happy if I get a 7 now. But I want to hit those top grades for my GCSEs. Before you start asking, yes I do look at the mark schemes and yes I do practice papers. But still I only get 6's, barely ever get a 7.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
