I am. I have been trying to find a past paper to use but apparently you need an edexcel account to download them. I have practically no idea what we are supposed to be doing. Any ideas on where to find past papers? Maybe we could help each other?

I know right? I just wanted an idea of what sort of questions would be asked but you can't get a full idea as it changes every year. We are being taught things for gender identity and dialect but for my investigation, I'm hoping to do gender identity and superhero comics. What about you?

Neither have I but I find it really interesting and there's a site a friend of mine found i think that you can read them on. Have you started tour investigation then? We're still being taught about georgie dialect which is so boring by the way in my opinion and gender identity. Apparently we get to actually do the investigation after half term. We just had an assessment on dialect and have another on fender tomorrow. We got a sheet on how to anser the questions. I could show you if you'd like?

You're so lucky! I wish we could start it already. Instead we have to research Geordie dialect and I hate it. We've been doing it since the materials came out and I've had to do an essay on it even though I'm never going to use it again. I'll send you pictures of the sheet we got in a bit. Can't send it right now.

I don't suppose anybody got any further with the Gender and Identity topic in Superhero Comics, have they? Our class is kind of stuck in a little bit of a rut at the minute trying to find some good sources. We're happy to share our stuff with anyone that can help us out. Thanks, everyone!

I think some of the suggested books are available online, although I can’t remember which ones. A good place to start is with the 3 D Models (Deficit, Dominance and Difference) and use these to go through comic books and try and prove/disprove them. There is an online vault of comic books that you can access. Also try making a mind map of all the different levels (graphology, grammar, phonology, lexis etc.) that should hopefully help get you to know where you need to do some more research .

I was in the same boat. English is my second language too and I know how hard is to cope with all these grammar rules and writings in the foreign language. Currently I study abroad and I often apply to professionals for grammar and plagiarism check. For me it's the only way to get good grades in English. I found info about best writing service PapersOwl UK and found real professionals.
