Here is my story that i used in my exam you can use it but change it depending on the question its probably worth around 20-30 marks if you are lucky but its better than nothing

"In a small picturesque village nestled amidst rolling hills, there lived a young girl named Lily. With flowing golden locks and sparkling blue eyes, Lily was known for her kind heart and adventurous spirit. She had always dreamed of embarking on a grand journey, filled with excitement and wonder.

One sunny morning, Lily woke up to find a mysterious letter on her window sill. Intrigued, she opened it and discovered an invitation to a hidden treasure hunt. The letter directed her to follow a series of clues scattered throughout the village, promising a great reward at the end.

Excitement ruptured within Lily as she set off on her thrilling adventure. The first clue led her to the village square, where she spotted an ancient stone well. As she peered inside, she discovered a small key glimmering at the bottom. With trembling hands, she retrieved the key and proceeded to the next clue.

The second clue led Lily to the enchanted forest at the outskirts of the village. Amongst the towering trees and dappled sunlight, she stumbled upon a hidden cave entrance. Cautiously, she ventured inside and discovered a secret room adorned with sparkling jewels and glittering jewels. Overwhelmed by the sight, she realised that the true treasure lay not in material wealth but in experiences and memories she would gather on this incredible journey.

As Lily continued her quest, she encountered various challenges and obstacles, each more demanding that the last. From crossing treacherous ravines to deciphering cryptic riddles, she showcased resilience and determination. Along the way, she met a colourful cast of characters - a wise old sage, a mysterious woodland creature, and a kind-hearted stranger - who aided her in her quest, teaching her valuable lessons about courage, friendship, and self-discovery.

Finally after a series of trials and tribulations, Lily reached the end of her adventure. She stoop atop a breathtaking cliff overlooking the vast expanse of the shimmering ocean. In that moment, she had discovered her own inner-strength,learned the importance of perseverance, and realise that the true joy in life lies in the journey itself.

With a contented smile, Lily returned to the village, forever changed by the extraordinary adventure. She shared her story with the villagers, inspired them to embrace their own dreams and embark on their own quest for self discovery.

In the end, Lily's story became a legend, passing through generations, reminding everyone that life is a treasure hunt, and that the true treasure lies in the journey itself. And so, the village became a beacon of hope and inspiration, as its inhabitants embark on their own remarkable journeys, forever grateful to the girl that showed them the way."

If you can put that much effort into getting something else to do the work for you (and as you admit, it's hardly a brilliant piece of writing), why not just do it yourself in the first place? Can't understand these people who'd rather direct all their brain power to finding ways around doing something when it would be less effort just to do it properly 🤔

Mb for replying super late. I think they've taken them down; the only way you can find them now is through your teachers. If you do a quick google search for aqa english language paper 1/2 exemplars a few of them come up. scroll down right at the bottom https://penketh.weebly.com/year-11.html

as for revising english language, as cliche as it sounds practice makes perfect especially with analysing language and translating whatever you've inferred into a decent answer. Can't really comment further cause its been ages since I've done anything related to english language or lit
