How did you guys find the test?

I ran out of time and I’m a little worried because of that. The last question threw me off

To be honest with you I totally wrote anything that I think Rosie imagination. Something like that, I think I have done bad in that question, I haven’t really structured my answer well, kinda scared.

My whole year group sat the exam, which is unusual for the November series I think. I found it alright and definitely better than some of the past papers I've done, but really not sure what I'll get grade wise. Hope everyone else found it okay and good luck for paper 2 on Wednesday!

Q1 2 was easy 3 4 bit harder and done bad on Q5 because I only wrote a page. Praying grade boundaries are low but even if I fail or get a 4 I will still be able to keep my predicted grade 5. How’s everyone revising for paper 2.

Hey, Q1 seemed relatively straight forward Q2 I struggled on slightly, but managed to do it, didn’t have time to check back on it.Q3 found easy Q4 also relatively straight forward I don’t think I made enough points as I didn’t have time Q5 I wrote a story that I had written for revision but rushed the ending and didn’t make the ending in as much detail as I would’ve wanted. The exam board did say the grade boundaries will be low though. How is everyone revising for paper2?

I wrote for q4 that the writer portrays Rosie as insane and incapable to carry out tasks , he also repeats strange a lot also Rosie could have been abused physically or by her mind in the past before she is also overwhelmed which is constantly stated

that's rly good, I just said she keeps seeing the girl appear and disappear which must mean its part of her imagination as her own child was unfazed
