    I wrote like four pages for the last question. Is that enough?
    No way, you're joking.

    More than enough lmfao, I don't know where you found the time or the ideas, but defo expect a high grade if you wrote that much and used loads of good writing techniques.

    There was like six pages available though! I was unsure of whether the extra space was for those with huge handwriting. I wrote **** all on the 8 markers; like one and a half to one and three quarters! I can't recall how much I wrote for the 16 markers - over two pages definitely though.

    LOOOOOOOOL that's me, honestly me. I could hardly scrape two pages for the 8 markers, I just hope that my marker appreciates quality over quantity

    Even though my teacher's always out here saying NO IT'S MARKED FOR QUALITY AND QUANTITY. but f*ck that, idc, no more english forever so suck on that

    Skydiving and appreciating the world and seeing it in a new light, all that bullsh*t. Even though I have never gone skydiving, thought it would be good to describe. But I cringed so f*cking hard when writing it.

    Like I wonder if examiners literally think we're all sensitive losers according to the way we write. Cos I know I sound like a tit in my creative writing.

    I'm praying that the examiner respects my work because I don't want to redo that paper ever again I think I've got a B or a C hopefully. I've never been at an A, so there wasn't too much pressure.

    Well last year you needed 46 for a B and 43 for a C, you'll defo hit that. cos that means you're allowed to lose 37 marks max, so you're in safe hands regardless of the examiner (because tbh, I reckon they're all bitter)

    Maybe. It depends on your coursework and how well you did in the other questions

    You had to argue whether it was worth travelling to other places beyond Great Britain.

    Since it was an 'argue' question, you did need to pick a side, but you still had to include contradicting views: for example 'some people think that going on holiday is expensive. But can you really put a price on an experience?'

    so you provide contradicting views, but only to trash it with your view. if that made any sense

    Nahh, but that may have been a better idea cos I didn't have the greatest portion of time for my question 6. acc no, question 4 is f*cking stressful, I'd prefer to get it out the way before section B

    That's heavy, what did you write about then? cos describing can be subliminal, like it slips out when you explain stuff etc
