    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

    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.

    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.

    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!!!
