    Hey as you are stuck for essays, I have like 30 essays planned out for this exam each wit out six ideas if you want them. As a summary of predicted essays these are the key one:
    - smoking/alcoholism
    - tourism - holidays in spain

    Also, I have made vocab checklists from our school's book and am doing grammar quizzes.
    Ahh that would be amazing if you could! Writing is definitely my weakest point so that would be really helpful! Thank you so much!!

    off the top of my head:
    Es una lástima que, me entristece que, me alegre que, para que, es *any adjective* que (eg esencial, ridículo, interesante etc), el hecho de que, tan pronto como, hasta que... there's loads

    can also use the imperfect subjunctive+pluperfect si sentence sequence
    (I'm an A2 student resitting)

    Si hubiera estudiado más, habría sacado notas mejores. If I had studied more, I would have got better grades.

    I don't think it will. Chances are that your increased command of the Spanish language will make it hard for you not to get the marks.

    Just relax for now. It's the best thing you can do at this point.

    It's unlikely to be all three; they all come under the same topic (Health and Lifestyle) and it would be extremely unusual for them to ask all the essay questions on the same topic!
