Title: Mock Analysis

Mock Analysis
  • You need to show that you can
  • Read with insight
  • Show that you understand what a writer is trying
    to do
  • Use quotations to support your ideas
  • Distinguish between facts and opinions
  • Follow an argument
  • Make cross references and compare
  • Understand how writers use language, structure,
    and presentational features to achieve effects

Paper 1 Section A
Gadgets for Girls
  • For too long men have had all the great gadgets
    to play with, while girls have been left out of
    the fun. Well, we say its got to stop. So heres
    the low down on one of the most girlie, but
    gadget-laden cars around the new Nissan Micra.
  • A run down of its features reads like a list of
    essential lifestyle tools. For those of us who
    tend to over do it with the shopping, the new
    Micras got a rear sliding seat, so you can
    enlarge the space in your boot. Or, if youre
    cruising around with a load of leggie mates in
    the back, you can slide the seat back and give
    them more room.

  • Then theres the Intelligent Key, that is also
    useful after a shopping spree. Say you get back
    to your car loaded down with bags, if youre a
    Micra driver theres no need to go rummaging
    around for your keys, the car will sense youre
    near and then all you need to do is press a
    button to unlock the door or boot. As long as you
    have the Intelligent Key in your pocket or bag
    you dont even need to fish it out to start the
    engine, the ignition can be started with the
    twist of a switch.
  • The new Micra will do wonders for your social
    life too. The rear parking sensor will help you
    squeeze into the tightest spaces so you wont
    find yourself parking half a mile away from
    wherever youre meeting your mates, and then
    having to tramp all that way in your dancing

  • If you need somewhere to leave your work things
    while youre out on the town, the front passenger
    seat lifts up to reveal a large, extra storage
    area. When you get home at the end of a night,
    the Micra will still be looking out for you the
    friendly headlamps will stay on for up to two
    minutes after you get out and lock the car, so
    you wont ever have to walk to your front door in
    the dark.
  • The drive computer will tell you bags of useful
    information, such as how many miles of fuel you
    have in your tank, but it will also remind you of
    anniversaries and birthdays, so theres no excuse
    for forgetting any crucial dates. You can control
    the drive computer and the stereo from buttons on
    the steering wheel, so you can flick between CDs
    and radio stations without taking your eyes off
    the road.

  • On top of all this, the new Micras got
    electric, speed-sensitive power steering, which
    makes city driving a breeze.
  • Its curvy in all the right places, retro in all
    the right ways, but cutting-edge and intelligent
    on the inside. In fact the new Micras such an
    individual it speaks its own language. The
    perfect balance between simplicity and
    technology? Thats simpology. Inventive but
    convenient technology were talking
    conventive. The largest luggage space in its
    class, with the option to slide the seat back to
    create more legroom that spells leggage.
    Modern yet retro? Modtro of course. Grab a
    brochure and become fluent today.

Marks 0 Skills Nothing written Content
1 Little evidence Little content General or descriptive comments Key fob has no actual key It looks good
2 Attempts to engage LARGELY DESCRIPTIVE Some identification of the more obvious presentational devices Handle shows nature of the sensor Might be dangers in the background
3-4 Clear attempt A clear attempt to engage with MEDIA CONCEPTS Comments on HOW different pictures / devices are used MEDIA TERMINOLOGY used Links owner with big smart house and attractive woman Smaller pictures make it look arty
5-6 Detailed Clear and DETAILED A full understanding of task Sophisticated use of media terms Lips are sexy, futuristic and talk Micra to you
Example Answer
  • Most of the images are very effective in helping
    to support the claims made for the car in the
    text. This is because most of them show exactly
    what each gadget is or does, but also they are
    modern or arty create the same impression as
    the text.
  • Two pictures show how the cars friendly
    headlamps will stay on for two minutes after the
    owner has got out of and locked the car. This
    feature dominates in the advert and have their
    own style they are a little blurred which makes
    the reader look harder at them.

  • The two pictures in the top left hand corner
    also support the claims made in the text. These
    are that the car does not need a key. The left
    hand picture shows the Intelligent key while
    the right picture shows the button which is
    pressed to open the door.
  • The only picture that I do not think is
    effective is the one in the top right corner as I
    do not see what it is meant to show.
  • Overall the pictures support the idea that this
    is an innovative key which attractive, trendy
    women would be interested in buying.

Extracts from example answer
Even though the initial cost of a car is high
compared to public transport, in the long-term it
is cheaper
Schools are meant to be places of knowledge, so
they should give us knowledge about driving!
To those who say that more people driving means
more people will be unhealthy, I say it is up to
the individual to take care of their health
Let students learn how to drive at school.
Since all of you readers are so bright and

young and alert?

of it / The small splash, echo /In a tin mug,
The alliteration of s and the onomatopoeic
effect of splash does help the reader to

create such joy and to associate the noises with

General Advice for Literature Paper
  • Know the texts well! Revise from your anthologies
    and exam notes carefully.
  • Take time to think about what the question is
    asking the best answers use a plan
  • Use quotations to support your answers and do try
    to use technical language in your comments
  • Consider the structure of the texts stories
    where is the climax? Is there any symbolism? Do
    the endings provide a significant resolution?
  • For poetry consider the structure of the stanzas.
    Is there any change in the mood? Is the
    punctuation significant? Is there alliteration,
    imagery, or interesting phrases that are used for
    effect? What effects do the poets want to
    achieve? Are they successful?
