    It went al-right.

    It's ok if you feel you did bad keep you M.R Head up!

    I found Question 1 okay

    Question 2 was tricky

    Question 3 was 👌
    Yeah same here but I spent way too much time on Q3 that I didn't get Q2 finished I only done 5/8 points

    I thought Q1 was okayish considering that I'm usually AWFUL at that. Question 2 was quite good actually although I misread the question at first and realised how few quotes I was left to look at. I managed to analyse those available to me decently though. Question 3 was actually the worst for me... I just didn't like the text very much.

    I didn't understand Q1 at all , it said pretend you are Maria , but why at the end said Maria Rose Head= M.R Head ?

    The invigilators distracted me through the whole exam by walking around the room, making foot step sounds, it was so annoying, I couldn't even concentrate!

    Guy's do you think that the grade boundaries are gonna drop?
    I hope they're going to drop, just like how the populations of bees are dropping.

    I said in question 2 that the "orange trees" are that colour because it's exotic compared to our green trees at home oblivious to the fact that it meant ****ing ORANGE FRUIT TREES ffs

    Damn everyone's giving hate to question 2 im here like, I FORGOT HOW TO READ no seriously i didn't understand what i was reading because i panicked the first 3 minutes and i couldn't soak in the information. I had to give myself a pep-talk in the exam hall. I have to say, the text about the honeybees was extremely tedious and the examiners are so sly and crafty with the first text. I had to figure out which character was saying/thinking which thing and yes the last bullet point was very vague but overall i didn't think i did too bad.
