As the title states.

I do not know which one the tomorrow one is. What should I remember before going in? Like PEED, PECS etc.?

19th century extract with 4 qu's:
1. Identify a word/phrase
2. Give 2 ways the writer...
3. How does the writer use language and structure to... (make sure you talk about both language AND structure)
4. Evaluation qu (how successfully the writer does something; leave enough time to talk about the whole text chronologically)

1. Just quote
2. PEED?
3. PEED with 2 language paragraphs and 2 structure paragraphs
4. PEED + PECS?

Could you explain what we got to do in each one please? Anything I need to remember like verbs, nouns etc.?

Not sure about the structure of Edexcel, as I do AQA.

But if there's any creative writing, don't go over the top with vocabulary. Think of key phrases that you can use, one of mine is "Sun-dappled shade" that I like to use. Also some words you would like to incorporate, so last year I did "tremulous".

Don't be a try-hard, make it unique and most importantly succinct and not drag on.

qu 2: just pick out two example of what the qu asks you to find, no need for PEED
qu 3: can use PEED if you want, focus on 2 techniques for structure e.g. repetition and 2 examples for language (zoom in on key words), link your points on l&s together
qu 4: don't use PEE paragraphs because you'll just fall into the trap of analysing the text when you need to evaluate it like the qu says, refer to the writer's techniques + explain how each of your points you make does what the qu asks whether it does

hope that helps and it's not too confusing

Could you give me an example of what not to do and what to do for Question 4? I don't understand this part.

So what you don't want to do is just state the obvious (analysis) e.g. 'The first sentence builds the suspense.' because it doesn't really evaluate the text rather what you want to do is explain how the writer builds this suspense e.g. 'In this extract, there is an attempt to build suspense which is created by the narrator hiding a secret.' Then you would explain what the how successfully the writer does so and maybe explain the effect on the reader e.g. is the reader supposed to feel worried, scared? etc.
