I didn't write a conclusion. Does it matter?

I think u have to do a range to show the examiner that u fully understand the text and what the writer wants the reader/audience to feel. what was the one u managed to do?

yh I think a conclusion just rounds off all ur ideas and shows that u made a coherent argument. but idk if u'll lose loads of marks for not doing one

okay so if you mean writers methods like simile metaphors i didnt do it but i did add in context does that count as writers methods technically or their ideas?
if u did context then that would count towards AO3 which is max 6 marks. writers methods would be AO2 and that's like 12 marks and that includes similes metaphors etc.

honestly paper 1 is a clear flop for me im just gonna make it up for paper 2 so i can get that 9.....i dont even know why i think this, maybe high standards? you see im a top grade student for english. but anyways yeah if similes and personification part of ao2 then its clear flop for me. the thing is the examiners probably gonna think i dont know when in reality i do know subject terminology i just really didnt have time
