Yeah, I really didn't like that question - I can't even remember what I put for it! As for the essay, I did think about the 'Werbung' one, but then I am only good at poiting out the negatives of adverts, e.g. Insidious, targets children, brainwashing etc. I'm not good at talking about positives.

I did the health essay in the end, I had about 1 hr 15 minutes to write it, and still didn't have enough time, there was so much to say!
1hr 15 minutes for the writing? does that mean you did the listening and reading in 45 minutes? i had hardly any time for the writing.. :/

Did not even get to that, I spent too long prancing about on the reading, hyperventilating through my rushed writing-which did not even make 2 pages and by listening I was having an aneurysm...
don't worry i did the same
i started with the listening spent ages on it rushed the writing and grammar and didn't make 2 pages on the writing.. F*ck and i am meant to get an A. does anyone know how much the Oral is worth % wise?

Yeah, ~40-50 minutes on the listening and reading. I just listened to some things twice, but mainly, everything once. I find my problems lie in getting full marks in the writing. I tend to get ~28/30 out of 35 in all of our practice essays, so I decided that I would give myself plenty of time, as it is the content I always lose marks on. For this, I got a bit about less sport being played, due to cost, and people doing other things - I also got a load of other things taht leads to obesity etc, and didn't even get chence to write about lung cancer, breathing difficulties etc caused by smoking, and the sdeath of nerve cells due to drugs, whichj I was oping to get in - even with 1 hr 15 mins I didn't have time!

yeah i did the health question too and wrote about exercise and sport in school and unhealthy food etc (the obvious) and a little bit about anorexia and stress but didn't have time to talk about drugs alcohol :/
timing is the issue for me, especially on the llstening. did anyone find the grammar section quite good? i hope i didn't rush it.

Okay, so I'm pretty sure I've completely failed that exam. I spent wayyyy too much time just listening to the cd and reading the texts and not enough time writing the answers! my essay was quite bad and I missed out quite a few questions :/ Bye Bye pass in German.

I didn't really use any complex structures, I think mine was a bit repetitive and the writing is out of 35 I think

I got Subjunctive, pluperfect, passive, past, imperfect, perfect and future, along with constructions like 'es gilt als' but I kept thinking I'd forgotten something, and only used one pluperfect, but then again, I didn't want it to seem like a ticklist making sure I had one of everything

listening was ok
reading was SOLID. the one about the cinema killed me and so did the last one where we had to write in german. i had 15 minutes for the essay and i didnt check any of my work and was not grammer aware in teh essay becauyse of the time. SO ANNOYED. but it was the hardest paper iv done in comparison to any of teh others.
