Down with this sort of thing


We are very focused on Unfamiliar Texts at the moment but you should also be working on your essays. You know  that you need to develop a critical response to relevant text(s) – so what does this mean? Well, this is what it doesn’t look like! A Not Achieved essay may be characterised by some of the following:

  • weaknesses in organisation and / or stylistic control
  • randomness and uncritical response – may be short and / or simplistic
  • insufficient knowledge of the text(s)
  • insufficient link with the question
  • reliance upon plot
  • lack of references to, or detail from, the text(s)
  • some relevant points, but without much support for them
  • little personal response or appreciation
  • likely to be shorter than 400 words.
