    The writing for 2014 was much worse than this one! And the translation wasn't that bad. I managed to get through most of it with guessing at a couple of things, I didn't get the Yamanotesen. I finished and left the exam hall with like 20 minutes to spare after having checked it for 20 minutes. Does it really take everyone that long!? :/
    I finished early but spent a lot of time checking through the essay; there was a lot I was unsure on. I suppose the problem with constantly checking is that you over-think everything to the point where you doubt it completely aha.

    Oh phew. We were worrying about that. Haha erm well I've read them a few times and my mum said she'd just write a generic essay for me to memorise because the questions are similar. I think I'll just cram read them nearer the time... :P How are you revising the rest of the paper? :P

    Hey guys,

    I'm retaking Japanese A2 this year, as I didn't get the grade that I wanted last year!

    Last year, I studied Tokyo as my chosen prefecture and Duke/Hana. Have any of you read Duke/Hana and what are your thoughts on them? Also, what area are you guys studying? I'm changing mine to Hiroshima and maybe another place like Kamakura.

    Also, how are you guys planning for Section C in terms of the structure and use of language? I've never really seen a 'perfect' essay for Section C apart from some in the examiner's reports!

    Sorry for all the questions!

    What do you think the author's message is in Hana?
    Cool, I've never been to 愛媛県! How are you planning to write an introduction for the 日本の地方 question?
