I'm pretty sure that lots of a people, like you, wrote about a time when they lost someone and not something. This certainly included many people in the school, so I don't think it will be an issue, and you have nothing to worry about!

I did really well in my mock papers but I can't help feeling like I messed this paper up.
Especially the writing.
I can't quite remember the wording of the question but my first thought was that I'd do about losing (and finding) my son when he was he was a toddler.
Now I'm stressing myself out and thinking I didn't meet the brief. Would they expect you to strictly write about losing a 'thing' rather than a person? If so will I lose marks?

I hope so. I've been trying not to think about it but it's been in the back of my mind all day.
Thank you 😀

It could be anything that you lost. Doesn't even have to be animate or physical as this wasn't explicitly stated in the question. I wrote about the loss of a relationship Missbax81

No, I think as long as you can argue that you lost something it'll work. All I did was rewrite my piece I got full marks on and then at the end add "I lost everything", so it should be fine. I hope...

How did it go today guys?
For the imaginative writing i feel like my story was very slow and didn't really go anywhere. I talked about being lost in the rain. I think my middle and opening were really well planned and had lots of description but my ending seemed rushed and a pit out of place. I ended it very abruptly. I just said i had fell in to the trap of mother nature. For reading section i wrote 2 paragraphs for question 3 and 3 for q4. I could've written another or q4 but i thought all my points are good. Hopefully i can get an 8/9.

Well, that's good then. At least you feel it went well.

It's over now. You've probably done a little better than you think.
I hope so

I'm sure they will be flexible. I doubt that this will have any effect on your final mark for Section B. They're not insanely strict about the brief. )

Interesting. I know someone who did something similar with a 'secret' in last year's exam and ended up with a 9 lol.

Hearing whisperings of some controversy about this paper. Was the extract particularly harrowing? Can you remember which part of 'Dombey and Son' it was that was given?

Thanks.

So I'm really worried about the imaginative writing from yesterday. I did the question about happiness or relief but for some reason, I thought it was a good idea to write about a murder? Like I put that the character was felt relief because she killed someone, but now I'm worried I didn't answer the question properly... There goes my Eng Lang grade down the gutter lol

If the character is a psychopath or something, maybe that befits them?

I didn't say that the character was a psychopath outright, but I did heavily imply it. Also I kept saying that she was relieved to commit the murder and then at the end, she was relieved because her friend was safe (she murdered someone that she thought was going to hurt her friend).

I did even worse. I had a plane crash and there were no survivors. this lead to me feeling guilty about my survival so when I died, I felt relieved. I don't even know why I chose this question but oh well, let's try and ace paper 2

My writing finished similarly to yours. The character was given the death penalty and she said that she was relieved to be killed by a lethal injection than the cancer she had developed. I don’t know what I was thinking when writing that lol
