    English JC essay 2013 rachellebowden1

    Along with some of you I had English paper 1 and 2 today. For anyone who doesn't have their exam paper, the final essay option was: Write an essay entitled "Sucess" with all these things in it: (4 points) There was a list of 4 points but I misread the question and only included one. How many marks could I get docked for this?

      Unfortunately, the Marking Schemes for the English paper is not on so I don't think there's any way to know.

      Maybe you added one or two of the other 3 without even realising. You never know

      I agree with Onedirection. But just so you know, if you do lose marks for this, I'd say you'd probably lose some of the marks for Content.
