Need an answer to this. I did Section A relatively well and i think scored pretty well on there. BUT on Q5 I used the priest story but tweaked it. However, i stupidly forgot to make it a "life changing event" as he ended in hell. However, i included loads of ambitious vocab and punctuation but I'm sooooo scared i may lose marks as its not quite life changing, but at the start of the story he finds out he goes to heaven so could that be classed as life changing. but the fact he ends in hell really annoys me and i really hope to get a 7 minimum because that's my target.

Please can someone reply.

basically where a priest wakes up in after life walks to heaven, gates shut walks to dwon to hell.

I used this plot but wasnt the question on life changing or life saving, so u think id still get high marks despite my answer not fully answering question however, at the start the was a life change/ rescue when my character wakes up in dark room and finds out hes going to heaven???????

in my mock for example, my story didn't fully link to what they asked ..well hardly..but as long as there's even a little hint of what they've asked in the writing it should be alright..but seriously ambitious vocab is what they're really searching for so plz don't worry, I'm sure u have done great! just have some faith

as long as you didn't copy it word for word..it's fine to be inspired by another story

I think it might be plagiarism as you used the priest story (but it’s okay if u didn’t copy it word to word), also as far as I know from my teachers if it doesn’t link back to what aqa asked for you to write about them you might lose marks.

thanks and to some extent my story begins like this
a ex boxer wakes up in after life in a grave which i describe as very menacing and repugnant i go really descriptive on the disgusting nature of it

- then i describe how he breaks grave open and opens door at his house to find hes going to heaven and i go descriptive with the walkway to heaven.
- then i go off topic when he finds out he doesnt go to heaven and walks down the menacing stairway to hell and end up at the gates of hell.


DO YOU THINK THAT SINCE MY FIRST PART IS ABOUT A LIFE CHANGE/RESCUE IN A SENCE THAT HE IS ANGRY THAT HE INA GRAVE THEN HE FINDS OUT HE GOING TO HEAVEN AND GOES THERE, YOU RECKON I STILL GET GOOD MARKS ON THAT PART AND MAYBE THE REST AND IT CAN BE CLASSED AS A PLOT TWIST.

ALSO I INCLUDED LOTS OF SOPHISTICATED VOCAB AND PUNCT

Just concerned that too many people have used it there was only a plot to use he didn’t write a story but he did write a plot. If so many people have used it will they get suspicious?
