    Hi, this question is probably too broad to answer completely at the moment! Is there anything in particular you're having problems with?

    I'm doing A2 so might be able to help a bit. I wrote general post about AS German (and a bit about the essays) a short while ago - see if it's of any use:

    By the way, I'm doing AQA - which exam board are you on?

    Maybe you can help guys ?

    This is aimed at typical debate-y 2 part questions. On my last essay I achieved 34/35 (I dropped 1 on accuracy and nearly flipped a table) so this should be of use

    - Have a strong introduction about what you're gonna be arguing and offer both perspectives in it.
    - Make sure you balance and consider counter-critcisms
    - Have a conclusion which sums up your overall position
    - Use specific/advanced vocab not basic stuff
    - Check a million billion times if your grammar is correct esp. verb-subject agreement
    - Use Konjuntkiv II und Passiv in order to gain 5/5 on grammar
    - Don't reiterate yourself.
