What do you think about the BIG FIVE structure for Paper 1 ?

Recommended Posts

Hello :)

I was wondering if the BIG five structure for paper 1 is adequate. 

1-Audience / purpose 
2-Content / theme
3-Tone / mood
4-Stylistic devices
5-Structure

This structure makes a 7 paragraph essay (with the intro and conclusion), which may look good or bad.

Personally, I followed the following structure for my Paper 1 mock exam and I got a 7, but I have the feeling it was overrated :

 

1.Intro

2.Text one analysis

3.Text two analysis

4.Comparison (Contrasts and Similitude between both texts)

5.Conclusion.

 

This structure makes it easier to not repeat multiple times "The tone of text 1... The tone of text 2..." "The purpose of text 1 is... The purpose of text 2 is..." which I find boring. But it could not fit the question perfectly because it focuses more on the understanding of both text separately in order to compare them lastly.

 

If anyone could give me any advice for my exam structure,

Thanks you very much, Poilka.

I think its crap and you should not use it. I think you  MUST know it but undertake your own type of analysis that really shows your engagement rather than regurgitating some plastic model.
