Key to Success in Paper 1

How to write a great Paper 1

This is a very brief Blog post for all of those Senior students (and teachers) with one or both eyes on the Paper 1 examination.

There's nothing more important than having a clear strategy for addressing whatever texts come up in this examination. There is plenty of advice in this site about how to structure the response... but what is brand new is this post - Paper 1 - Student Examples: Comic Strip - which not only gives two real student examples with grading quizzes and examiners' comments, but also provides an excellent model example, with a clear explanation of what is required in each paragraph followed by said paragraph itself.

If there's one page you use to help you prepare for Paper 1, let this be it. It's probably worth a monthly subscription alone for all aspiring M22 students. Good luck and enjoy.
