I have to write a story for my English GCSE first person narrative writing, I am looking for highest grade which is A*.
Here are the options for the stories:
a) Write about a time when you lost something of importance
b) Write a story beginning with the following: ''I slammed the door as I dashed out...''
c) Write a story ending with the words'... There was no chance I could pass the examination now.'
d) Write about a time when you were forced into doing something that you really didn't want to do.
e) Write about a time when something you had carefully planned did not work out as expected.
Please, let me know if you need requirements to get A* or 20 points.
Here is my work which was evaluated D-C. Thanks in advance.
Story should be about 700-800 words
the writing is developed with originality and imagination
plot and characterisation are effectively constructed and sustained
material is selected and prioritised to maintain interest
narrative is purposefully organised and sequenced and well paced
paragraphs are effectively varied in length and structure to control detail and progression
cohesion is reinforced by the use of text connectives and other linking devices
devices to achieve particular effects are used consciously and effectively
a wide range of appropriate, ambitious vocabulary is used to create effect or convey precise meaning
confident and assured narrative which engages and holds the readers interest
there is appropriate and effective variation of sentence structures
there is a sophisticated use of simple, compound and complex sentences to achieve particular effects
accurate punctuation is used to vary pace, clarify meaning, avoid ambiguity and create deliberate effects
virtually all spelling, including that of complex irregular words, is correct
tense changes are used confidently and porposeffuly
I am looking to get this done as cheap as possible. Guys, Im really on the tight budget... I am eating only rice every single day...
