If you're looking for a sample GCSE essay on holidays, this is one I wrote a few weeks ago. My teacher gave me 31-32/32 for it. Please tell me if it's helpful!

Hey, I know that you weren't the one asking for help but I just wanted to tell you (if you don't mind) to be a little careful with your writing in exams, especially for foreign languages. Even if your spelling etc is perfect, if the examiner can't read your writing then you may not get the mark for it. I remember in school getting marked down so many times for mocks etc because the examiner couldn't read my writing. Once I started writing without joining up my letters, my marks literally shot up because I wasn't losing marks due to illegible writing.

There's also this psychological aspect to marking called an 'impression mark'. Basically, when someone firsts sees your exam, they'll have an impression of it - it's bound to be more positive if your writing is extremely easy to read. Of course, examiners aren't allowed to mark you based on your writing, but their impression of you could be much more positive if you're making their job easier. :fluffy:

Even during university, I've always made sure to write extremely neatly without joining up my letters. I've lost too many marks in school for no reason than the examiner being unable to read my answers. :mob:

:lol: I get you. It reminds me of written letters from the Victorian era that you might find in museums.

Hi, thanks for your replies - yes this is something loads of people tell me - when I did this in the real exam I didn't write in italics - it was much more legible! Looking back on it now, I completely agree - it's not the neatest, but I just loved that handwriting at the time...

I'd don't think it's shockingly bad though, right...? (Please tell me I'm right... )

It's not bad at all, it's so elegant. At least it's legible. Btw, was this a 32 marker for GCSE?

Yes, this was an example of a question 2 for the AQA GCSE French exam my teacher gave me to do as homework.

The only thing I'd recommend is to use the subjunctive
