I honestly cannot believe how you got through a year with your teacher not teaching you the first section... I mean, it's half the exam! And surely you must've looked at past papers?

Back on topic, I thought the exam went ok :) I thought the power text was wonderful! Definitely had plenty to write about, whereas the gender text looked rather difficult. I didn't even turn over to have a look at the technology text because we'd barely done any work on technology, what was it like?

Yeah, spending only 15 mins on the categorising texts may have been a little bit of a mistake... :P

So by grouping - if it comes up!- i plan to hopefully group by audience purpose and formality etc. And then go into more specific detail as to why - i.e if to persuade , interrogative senteces etc and then contrast both texts i.e one uses graphology. and hopefully link in with context. BTW how many groups do you advise i do ... i was told on average 3 groups with 2 texts in each - oh and do you hvae to feature all texts . sorry to waffle - my teacher hasnt really taught us anything so ive had to teach myself practically
