Paper 1 was pretty easy. Hoping paper 2 is just as easy but I am trying my best to get a good mark though.

Timing was a bit of an issue for me - what did you guys think of the 8 marker?

Harder than the first one I thought, mostly with timing but it could’ve been worse.. question 4 was definitely the worst for me

I really messed up on question 5, I got more annoyed at how the statement was worded over what the implications of it were - addressing this was a mistake. The only place I could get a job as a journalist is 'The Sun'.

Much harder than paper 1. Id say i did okay, but Q4 I completely messed up, didn't have time to finish it, so only wrote about 2 paragraphs.. Also, do they combine both papers and then you get an overall grade or how does it work? How much do you need to get a grade C?

For question 4 Do you only talk about differences or similarities as well?

I thought it went really cool bruh. Last English exam on surfing will be one to remember and quickly forget haha. Q4 didn’t finish or do it justice but rest I did. Don’t worry, grade boundaries are going to be low dudeeee

I did well in q2 and 3, but question 4 was a bit messed up for me. Talked about similarities but changed it to subtle differences. q5 was a nice topic.

You need an overall of 78-80 marks in order to get a grade 4 which means 40 in each paper

same issue with me on question4, yh they combine them and you need around half marks to get a grade 4
