It wasn't too bad, the 90 minutes went quite quickly for me. Found it hard to analyse the text in 20 mins..

The time keeping was quite difficult, I found it odd that this was the second exam question for this paper ive seen that had a text based around Nigella Lawson.

What points did you do for A and B

Can't remember lol!
I think I mentioned that women were stereotypically 'kept' in the kitchen but now they choose to be there. Analysed some verbs and did some connotations. How about you?

For question one I wrote a lot about how the text did a good job of representing itself as calming through semantic fields and declarative, And represents the writer quit every positively.

I didn't feel as confident on question two but I did feel good writing about how it represents transcripts as limited because their was a line that seemed like it needed visuals for context.

I had to really rush question 3 though and ended up writing mostly about differences and similarities in things like audience and purpose.

What do you think (and hope) paper 2 will be in tomorrow?

Yes, I had to rush the final question too. I'm not sure about tomorrow, probably something about language and gender, I've been brushing up on my theory tonight so I'm not feeling so bad. Having the opinion article makes me feel like I will (hopefully) do better on the second paper. How about you?

Really hope it's on gender, I find the four Ds easiest and Howard Gilesto remember. I really hope the option article is something more engaging then the occupation one from last year, I really hope theirs some low mark boundaries and I'm just going to have to cram theories now and try to stay focused when I write the answers

Honestly I was feeling sort ignored positive about t but then I realised the final question was a paper about accent in the workplace and I wrote this whole article around the premise of why people should adopt RP for work and I'm worried it doesn't technically answer the question

I did a similar thing, couldn't remember any theories to do with accent, so wrote about accommodation theory instead. I felt like I was 'reusing' some things for the two questions
