My advice for 11 plus stories in this article applies just as well to 8 plus, 13 plus or GCSE … in fact, although I have written with 11 plus creative writing in mind, my suggestions should be relevant at any level. I’ve been teaching these things to young people for many years, and I hope you also find them useful. Please write a comment if you do!
