the first paper actually went pretty good tbf, like for q3 I wrote 1 page and a 5 or 6 lines, then for q4 and q5, I written 2 and a half pages. About the question about the memorable weather, like I dont know to be honest, could I talk about when last August, there was barely any rainfall and that in previous years there was always rainfall and my parents were working for a million hours so no time for a holiday, I ain't sure, but I hope I didn't mess up.

I liked the extract. At least compared to our last mock this extract was amazing – most people misunderstood the last extract in our mock at my school but Dickens was good. His writing is relatively clear. And Oliver Twist! An interesting extract, compared to previous papers I've seen. The tension question wasn't awful either, at least in my opinion; I managed to write four paragraphs (which is one more than I was aiming for) although I was worried the quality had gone down. What I found odd was Q5 – this time it was so narrow. Usually it's just 'write about a time you were happy' or something along those lines, so you could adapt any story to it. Not this time. I couldn't use the story I'd thought of, so I ended up changing it at the last minute, but I still wrote about 3 pages for that, so it was OK. Ended up writing historical/fantasy fiction to do with the witch trials and I chose the 'stand up for what you think is right' question (5, was it? It's gone from my brain lol). It was something along those lines, anyway. How did everyone else find it?

It was writing about a time where you, or somebody you know, stood up for something (although I did a person so hopefully I'll be fine!).

Overall the paper was alright, although I'm not an English person.

Good luck to you all!
