    It was alright, wish I'd had more time to check over everything better to be more relaxed about it but hey.
    Didn't like the exercise about explaining words with your own words just cos its such a paaain. especially when they asked to explain 'buraco'!!
    I did the one about renewable energy, always seem to go for meio ambiente :P the woman one was probably the 2nd most attractive to me, also a good one

    On the OCR exam board, there is no literature review / research based essay. There is however a 400 word essay you have to answer out of a range of essay titles. (Every title being related to one of the 10 sub-topics)

    When I sat my OCR Dutch A2 exam last year, I answerd an open ended question on integration/society. Simply because it was the easiest for me to blag.

    I believe the Edexcel mainstream & minority languages include a Research Based Esaay.

    You're very welcome!
    Btw you'll need to get at least 180/200 on the A2 paper in order to get an A*
    (I'm aware that you got 198/200 at AS)
    You can do it easyyy lol
