    Sorry to be nosey but what grade did you get? that is true, a spanish boy does it in my class and he gets near enough full marks every time, he is an absolute genius though, he is doing maths, further maths and physics and chemistry all in a foreign language!! I think he's going to Cambridge

    last year I memorised generic intro phrases/paragraph leaders etc but not like specific sentences for each topic- I just made mind maps with general ideas and learnt those

    Ahh okay I'll try that then Do you remember how long you spent on the writing section? I've had a look at some of the exemplar essays from 2014 and I have no idea how they managed to write sooo much

    I'm not really planning on revising tbh.... I could dig out some of my AS essays for you if you want? I think the lowest mark I got on one was 30/35....

    I'd love a look at a couple of your essays! I'm averaging 20 on mine so seeing where I could improve could be very beneficial to me!

    My teacher who has been absolutely amazing at predicting essays in the past thinks that something on Tourism will come up!
    No creo que el turismo aparezca de nuevo este año porque este tema estaba en la prueba del año pasado.

    espanish.org.uk es un sitio web muy útil para practicar las habilidades de lectura.

    Y diría que la mejor manera de practicar estas habilidades es a través de hacer las pruebas pasadas que puedes descargar desde http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/langu...d-mark-schemes

    Sí, practicar con exámenes de años anteriores es una idea brillante. Sin embargo, en la página web de AQA solo puedes encontrar exámenes hasta el año 2013. En myspanishexam.com/resources hay exámenes de los años 2012, 2010 y 2009.

    Is this your prediction of a topic that may come up?
