    OK I found the official thread I don't feel ready for the exam tomorrow but I'm not exactly dreading it either...

    I was advised to do the reading first because it's the easiest part then the essay and leave the listening last so you have more time to listen and rewind the CD, but that's because listening is definitely my weak point. For essays, I'm really hoping music, TV, drugs/smoking comes up, but 8-10 paragraphs seems really excessive (never been told that before)

    One thing I don't understand is why can you paraphrase in the reading questions where you write in French but not the listening??

    No it's not lines, it's 10-12 separate paragraphs - 5-6 paragraphs addressing one part of the question& another 5-6 paragraphs on the other question, with Point Evidence Explain (PEE) incorporated into each paragraph. It might seem like a lot but if you're a native speaker you'll probably have over an hour to write up your essay, and I'm sure you'll have plenty of points/arguments you can include, remember: it's only 5-6 points per question, it's just you have to split these points each into their own paragraph, explained and with examples - hope that makes sense!
    Nope, you don't really need to announce the essay plan in the intro, just make a couple of points on the context of the questions as I said in my first response to you x

    Check out the specification here: http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...95-W-SP-14.PDF (starts from page 5) on the exact things you need to know for the exam, and make a couple plans in your head.

    Lemme know if you need any more help
    So, from what i've understood we get 2 questions, so the essay plan is:

    1st paragraph - PEE on 1st question
    2nd paragraph- PEE on 1st question
    3rd paragraph- PEE on1st question
    4th paragraph- PEE on 1st question
    5th paragraph - PEE on 1st question
    (6th paragraph- PEE on 1st question)
    7th paragraph - PEE on 2nd question
    8th paragraph- PEE on 2nd question
    9th paragraph- PEE on 2nd question
    10th paragraph- PEE on 2nd question
    11th paragraph - PEE on 2nd question
    (12th paragraph- PEE on 2nd question )

    ????

    Damn we need so many points n examples

    woo thanks so much for this, I love the intro btw, definitely goon try and use "rein d'étonnent que..." tomorrow.

    Also, we've been told 3/4 points for each question then into + conclusion. For 45 mins you would have to write pretty fast to write 12 paragraphs; plus you need time to check for silly mistakes and stuff like that.

    Hmm I have no idea why my French teacher has always told us 10-12 paragraphs when you guys are capable of getting away with just 3-4 points on both sides. That's so strange, now I want to do 3-4 paragraphs on both sides of the Q but it's too late now for me to change the structure of my dissertations now in any case good luck everyone, whether you do 10-12 para. or 3-4 on both sides
