I didn’t know how similar this was to the Nat 5 course. It’s basically all the same but RUAE is longer.

For Set Text, my class are doing the play “Slab Boys”, and for the Critical Essay, the novel “Trumpet” by Jackie Kay. We are also going to be studying a film which gives us a choice for the essay.

Hello, I have a problem: my teacher wants us to think of an idea for our discursive and I had an idea of doing a topic about brexit but the problem is that it’s a quite hard topic to discuss and if the marker is the supporter of brexit then the marker would get really triggered talking about being a non-supporter and blah blah blah. So I thought that I would do about how technology have an impact on us or how it contributes to today’s world plus its cons and pros, and do you guys think it’s a good topic to do or is it just another boring topic that will not score anything?...

I’m in the same boat! Would like to do something political but unsure if it’s too broad a topic and maybe the marker will disagree. Personally I wouldn’t recommend the technology topic simply because a class in my school did that last year and I think it is probably quite popular and a wee bit overdone. My teacher said to choose something relevant but not something that will be too overdone e.g animal testing. I’m not sure what I’m going to do though lol

Any of you guys started your discursive essays? Or is it just me? The topic I've chosen this year is:

"The impact of screens on our youth"

It’s basically about its economic problems and government. How could UN resolve problems in Venezuela.
