I will concur that I did the same..
Orwell basically was forced into a position to act and due to the pressure from the crowd did not want to dent his ego even if it went against his judgement.. Bloody hard question to be honest and when I looked over what I wrote at the end of the exam I did have to make a fair few adjustments and even then I thought I did a poor job of compiling what I wanted to say.

My issue is I have the hand writing standard of a 4 year old doctor and my brain is about two lines ahead of my hand!!!.

For Question 5 paper one I also wrote about a mountain scene, the picture with the snow globe did absolutely nothing for me in regards to viable ideas. In my case I wrote about K2 in the Karakoram mountain range,.

Paper one
Ref the Skiers and if Zoe acted quickly enough I basically just went with the premise that we was not aware of her experience level from the text and due to the line that, "she tried to remember something about putting her arms out" (or words to that affect) It showed someone that only reacted when it was blatantly obvious it was all going wrong and she did not understand the subtle warning signs that happened previously ref her having to take the "Fall line" when the snow moved. She reacted I believe in time but her lack of experience was what caused here to be Avalanched, she did not understand what was happening prior to that.

I half expect the poor soul that has to mark my diatribe to simply put "Who is this clown and why does his writing resemble ancient Egyptian Algerbra"


If I managed a grade 4 I will be very surprised to be honest,...
I think your answers sound good! Don’t doubt yourself! I answered similar to the paper 1 question about do you agree or disagree. I wrote something about Zoe was unaware there was an avalanche coming so could not have ignored the warning signs as she didn’t know what was about to happen. I remember there was a quote about her thinking the start of it looked beautiful, so I expanded on that.

I contacted my tutor Monday evening to clear up any confusion I had about paper one Q5. Section B did not need to be linked to section A, in other words we didn’t need to write about snow/mountains to get marks! Phew!!

Q2 I wrote about the language effects. The writer used phrases and words to make the crowd view him as a performer - actor, magic tricks or whatever it said! I rambled on a bit.
I found question 4 the hardest.
You were not supposed to write about language.....

I realised I typed the wrong question number in my post! Whatever the question number was about language... it was that! Q3 I think.

I based my answer on Mr Bruff saying the question was looking for the effect the writer was trying to create with language. I saw ‘actor, puppet, conjuring magic tricks’ etc and wrote about the effect was the crowd saw him as a performer, I elaborated a lot about that.
If it’s wrong well I’ve done my best!!! I’ve got to put it out my mind now! I will say it feels strange not to be revising English the last two evenings!

I used the noun puppet to say that he was manipulated by the crowd like a puppeteer controlling a puppet.

Yeah fingers crossed I get something remotely average as a grade, luckily I have nothing riding on the outcome either way.

You’ll get a strong pass if not most likely a 5. If you added all this description here i wonder how you did in the exam. Wow. The pour soul should also be amazed hopefully mate. We all need that goddamn 4 to put an end to this English Language Bulls*it.

I love the confidence you have but my downfall has always been my print quality, if the exam was on a laptop I would have zero worries but when putting pen to paper it is a childish scribbling, I have had to write in block capitals for what seems like forever. I will genuinely be very interested in how they mark my exam when weighing everything up..

regards
