Thank you so much Mustafa! You're extremely helpful and generous :3
Do you guys have some descriptive writing examples? Because I'm going to pick the descriptive essay choice in Paper 2 and I need to read some descriptive essays to boost my writing skills. The candidate responses only have descriptive writings for "E" grades T_T
See this i guess
Do the essay and get it checked from your teacher
Yeah that's what I usually do. But you know, it's kind of hard to make up your own creative metaphors and similes which is why I need some inspiration for descriptive texts to extract some of those imageries and use them in my texts.
You gotta practice putting them in your writing
Hey megan. It happened with me too. I aced an A in English P2 but got U in Paper1. They overall gave me a U. Its their rule that if you get U in one paper. You’re fail overall nomatter you get A in other components.
Not in every subjcet
Yes not if you’re giving Excel (Both As & A2 mix). But in As its what they do.
Ok edexel maybe
Nooo. Not edexcel. In CIEs. Edexcel is something different.
Not sure, because one of my friend got a component U in Physics AS level but still managed to get B
can anyone please guide me to the link from where i can download this book..(or if anyone has it on PDF and can post the link)....please it would really help me in my exam on 14th may 2018..
"O Level Challenging English Essays" by Redspot Publishing
This is the front cover of the book...
it is THE book to study for A level Paper 2....!!!!!!
There is no online link. You have to buy it
No i specifically meant for "A level" Paper 2...as the essays in book focus on narrative, descriptive, as well as comparative writing examples...plus you get loads of ideas which can be tweaked and implemented in A levels writing exam!!!
Thats what i was afraid of ... searched lot for it.... my only hope is if someone here has a soft copy and is graciously willing to share it.... (i dont wanna buy the book just to study for 2 days )
You have absolutely no idea about how papers are graded.U isin't 49/100 or below.It means scoring less then 15 marks as far as I know
He said ‘for eg’
Separate names with a comma.
