Yeh same I’m not sure whether I did good or bad but Q1 was okay, Q2 was okay I just analysed the personification of the “gigantic malformed hand” and used some over the verbs: “snarled” and “chocking”. It gives the garden an animalistic vibe. I then did Qs4, I spent a lot of time on this and i kept crossing out and starting again but I managed to come up with a few points for and against. For qs3 I was rushed for time and I used 5 mins of my qs5 time but I just wrote about the beginning middle and end and the circular structure as well as the shift in focus on the stranger girl e.t.c and effect on reader- sinister and threatening tone. Qs5 was okay, only had 40 mins but lI preplanned descriptions that I just wrote up and made some things up on the spot but on the whole I found qs4 the hardest.

This is the QS5 picture, however the clouds were more grey, more Misty and fog everywhere and the black gates were wide open. Also there were more bushes on the floor and trees with no leaves behind the gates

What did you write for Q4? I was a little confused and I started to write about in one para about how the Rosie and the stranger girl had similar characteristics and perhaps the stranger girl could’ve been Rosie as a young child she was imagining as she ‘unconsciously’ recognised the girl was left handed like her. I also used to quote ‘Cara seemed unfazed by the presence’ of the stranger girl which is ambiguous as it could suggest the girl is real and Cara is used to seeing her or that actually the girl was a figment of Rosies imagination (I worded it better, analysed quotes as well). What did everyone else write ?

I think i done okay, for question 5 i basically used the extract we got and described the picture as a garden and linked it to a grave yard and also added an imaginary boy, i hope the examiner understands that im trying to foreshadow that the boy is a ghost.

I did something along the line. I had memorised a good weather paragraph, so I went into the question diverting my reader to long for good weather. I also wrote about how someone mysterious glided towards the gate, followed by his sister misty, then followed their parents holding hands like lovers would. I basically implied that it was the gate way to heaven but did not state they had died. Left that for the marker to assume. ... Think I wrote a story boys and girls.... Balls
