Spoken Language English Gcse Coursework

 
  1. Hi guys,

    So as part of my GCSE Coursework i've got an essay coming up in a few weeks on the evolution of the English language, analyzing text speak etc.

    Now, throughout all of last year I was getting straight B's and literally just 1 or two marks off an A, and after getting yet another two B's in my Lord of the Flies mock and actual essay, i'm so gutted I can't quite reach an A.

    So, does anyone have any tips, advice, past essay examples, marking schemes, anything they can give me that could possibly help? Ideally that will help me reach an A or even A* (it's worth a shot I guess!)

    Cheers
    Adam

  2. well remember if you get a grade b overall in your coursework which is now worth 40% cos speaking and listening have been scrapped and a grade A in exam (60%) then your likely to get A overall

    don't know what exam board you are but this is aqas, the info on the age is for teachers but there are two links to the 2013 spec and the 2014 spec depending on what year you're in. It's all about why people speak a certain way and stuff I think, I can't remember to be honest but I looked at the spec and ended up with like 90% on this piece, good luck x
