AQA, how would you structure an answer?

  • 0 votes

I'm answering Inspector Calls and To Kill a Mockingbird.

To Kill a Mockingbird contains the extract and the rest of the novel.

Whereas Inspector Calls will contain a thematic or character question.

What is the best way to answer this to gain the most amount of marks.

Im studing thoes books too. i would say make sure you have a good intro and conclusion because thats what the examiner reads first and last, make sure you grammer is correct and go in with a cool head. If you can back up your points with quotes (although this might be hard in to kill a mockingbird because its quite a big book). Always plan, then you know what your going to write, however dont spend ages planning because you only have 45 mins for each section!

Good luck!

write about 4-5 paragraphs depending on the marks avalible and write the usual PEE paragraphs but make sure you add a bit on in the same paragraph after the explain to write about the writers technique like use of language and punctuation etc then write a conclusion to sumnevery thing up. Also plan your answer before you write. Here's some notes I made on exam technique:
