As part of your planning for the Original Writing, you will have have selected a style model and looked at the linguistic strategies that it uses. This is a really important starting point as you need to make connections (A04) to your style model.In order to write a successful commentary, analyse the language levels used in your style model. Your commentary cannot just write about your own Original Writing piece as you need to justify how they relate to your selected style model.So an A from both pieces of coursework would be 52/60!
I'm currently supposed to be doing my English Lit A2 Coursework - the one where you have to compare two books of your choice.
For others who are doing it/those who have done it can anyone give advice on how you decided what to write?

Do not write about the language levels in a disjointed fashion. The attributive adjective “gold” within the noun phrase “the gold surface.” Through your knowledge gained from the style model, you will need to demonstrate an awareness of genre. How have you shown understanding of how individual genres work (and possibly overlap)? A05: Throughout the entire piece, you will be assessed on your ability to express ideas clearly and carefully using an effective structure.
For example, Marjory says 'Said it was Rawdon anyway." This has been imitated in my own original writing piece through..." This does not need to be a lengthy part of the piece. Your concluding paragraph should very succinctly summarise the overall representation that you have created in your original writing piece.
The General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Level, or A Level, is a main school leaving qualification in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
