The following points need work to make them full and accurate analytical points in response to the Mode question on the two texts about gap years.

What is worth keeping in each of these points? Does anything need to be removed or replaced? What could you add to make them decent points?

  1. Text A is a permanent, planned and written text which appeared online. Text B is a permanent, spontaneous blended mode text.
  2. Although Text A is written mode, it has some informal language, due to being written for students about gap years. This could also be because it is quite a personal text, sharing the writer’s own experiences.
  3. Text A is written in the first person, to show that her advice is good because it’s based on what she’s done herself. This will help the audience to trust her, as they can see that she knows what she’s talking about.
  4. In Text B, Becky uses non-standard punctuation to help make her text more interesting. She uses ellipsis and multiple exclamation marks: “so much… £2k!!!”
