NEA “one stop shop” – all resources in one place

Dear Year 13

NEA intro slides deadlines/ rubric/ideas for links

nea-plc list of what you need to include

The exam board shared the following 5 essays which they marked. These should give you an idea of the standard and also see the examiner comments to explain the mark. I know it is difficult to read essays about texts you haven’t read but you need to persevere. Look at how they have structured their essay; how many primary text quotes have they used?; how many critical quotes have they used?; how did they incorporate structure and form?; how did they write an intro? How did they signpost their argument at the start and end of paragraphs? How much context did they include?

25 marks  25 marks examiner’s comments
