The structure question is one which can cause all sorts of problems for students approaching GCSE English. So, there are a number of lessons on our VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) which cover what might come up in the exam – and the approach we take to it may surprise you.
However, of course, just like the language question, Paper 1 Question 3 (of the AQA exam) demands that you know some terminology so that you can describe the structure of a text while responding to the question.
So, here are some of the structural features that you will see in action on the VLE. Knowing what to look forward is straightforward enough, so as you can see from the list below, there are a number of important structural features to look at.
Knowing how to take this terminology and put them together to make an exam response is, of course, something altogether different. We will leave those lessons on the Virtual Learning Environment!
In the meantime, take a look at the structural features below. They come with a set of graphics that may blind you!
