    For the third bullet point I also had
    - write more in her journal
    - see if she can help or support the endangered bees in any way
    - carry on with the week itinerary that Al planned
    - explore the area more and the history of the place
    - Leave a good review of the place to make up for her husbands behaviour
    Don't really know how valid the majority of those are but that's also what I had
    These are the same points I wrote so hopefully they'll be on the mark scheme.

    What did you guys put for the third point on Q1?
    I didn't mention that much, all I mentioned was how she needed to look after her husband after been in hospital and how she will help get more business to Al's hotel by writing reviews and stuff🤔🤔🤔

    Q1 was really hard i thought.. There were no points and you had to make inferences with bullet point 2 and 3... But i thought the summary was really good.. Overall i think q1 and 2 will let me down the most

    Question 3 was a gift, the bullet points were clear! - Question 1 took me a while to get into but I think that I completed it quite well! - Although question 2 was a horrible question compared to previous years, paragraph 1 was pretty good although paragraph 2 was very limiting! bye A*

    i died in question 2 omg there was legit nothing
    I know the question was worded so weirdly that I didn't even know what I was supposed to analyse in 2a and the fact that the quotes were disgusting just adds to the frustration. I want to cry.

    Guys omfg it was so bloody hard! While I was writing about how sweet Al was it felt like I was having an affair with him because my 'husband' was being a douche 😂😂

    Anyway guys for q1 for the last bit I wrote how she's gonna teach his husband a lesson and how he needs to listen to other peoples opinions and not think he's superior than anyone else!

    I obvs wrote that in a better way but would that be ok? I think I got a B and maybe if I am lucky an A! terrible paper. The worst I have ever done!!!

    Hey, well did you actually count the number of words? Because if your writing is small enough, you could hit just about 200 without knowing. How much did you write a4 wise?

    I think if you manage to mention all15 points, even though some a wrong, you can still get 5/5... However it says write 200-250 words so im unsure? But let's say you get 4/5, you only loose a mark! That's one of the reasons they recommend us to leave the summary last, don't worry!
    I actually counted the words so I am certain I didn't get to the word count. Anyway, I know I included all 15 points.

    I only managed to get 13/15 for 3a, so I had to guess the other two. Yeah I agree for the other two. Really struggled to pick out 4 things from the 2nd part of question 2, oh well😖

    This or just hope everyone nationally does worse than expected as well so the grade boundaries just naturally go down (although it's very mean to wish someone else did bad as well)
    I hope they lower it
