    It was pretty nice, I guess you could say that the wood that was used to make the paper was also "blessed". I am interested in what you guys wrote for Q5.

    I think it was great, since I'm pretty up to date with sports news. So I used a lot of examples, like Neymar's move to PSG, Russia doping, Chinese businesses taking over clubs in the west...

    Ikr! There was so many other things to talk about but they ask us about the boards which were only mentioned once or twice. But at the end I was able to make good inferences.

    True, Q2 is only worth 8 marks. If you are confident in all the others then you could get into the top grades!

    If you used enough of other devices I think you'll be alright. Using too much can be a problem as well. The markers will probably look at the structure of your essay too, and the flow of your writing. SPAG's important too. My teacher gave me an example of an essay of someone who got 9 last year and he only put 2/3 metaphors. The way he structured things was amazing though.

    Oh noo... But its ok, its only 8 marks. But you can still get higher than a 6 and pass. Plus if have a good grade for P1 it should rasie the overall mark.
