GCSE English Mock Exam Questions /  Writing Model Answer

GCSE / IGCSE English Model Answer for Narrative Writing + Practise Exam Questions

This is a Narrative Writing model answer that I wrote as an example top level creative writing piece for my GCSE and IGCSE English Language students (AQA / Edexcel / CIE / OCR / WJEC). It is based off the following prompt:

**Write a story about a time and place, real or imaginary, when you felt trapped. Concentrate on your surroundings and your feelings at the time.

The title of the piece is ‘Pyramids’, and it explores themes such as history, tourism, nature, maturity and consumerism / materialism.

At the end of the resource, there are also exam - style questions imitating the phrasing of the AQA syllabus. These could be used to further assist students in their exam preparations. Therefore, this resource can be used as an example model answer for Creative Writing questions, and / or as a comprehension ‘insert’ text when combined with the exam style questions. Though the questions are most closely linked to AQA, they would also suit the OCR and Edexcel syllabuses quite well.

For those wanting to use the resource as exam practise, the Paper 1 AQA GCSE English Mark Scheme would be suitable to mark answers on this paper.
