    I started from question 3 because it has more marks and I was instructed to by my teacher but i absolutely loved Q3 it was so easy.

    Q1 was next and it was pretty good but I doubt I got a reasonable amount of marks for it but I reckon I got 9,10 or 11 out of 20.

    Q2 was the hardest because the quality of the quotes were **** and all I said for the effects was about imagery,making the person want to read more etc.
    I couldn't have said it better myself!

    I almost fell asleep reading rhe passages...and why the hell were both of them about bees XD q2 was a mess .. The powerful phrases were NOT powerful XD
    ikr!! I've practiced so many past papers and this was the worst one. Most past papers are about adventures and stuff like that, but this was about bees and staying at a hotel??!! I even tried to learn vocabularies surrounding advetures before this exam but i wasted that time. There wasn't anything for them to describe really.

    This is bad to say but I am so glad that everyone struggled with Q2 its making me feel a little more confident about it. I was glad it was a letter because is messed up in November when it was a speech. However the text was unbelievably dull and I also found it hard to understand. Had to read it through about 3 or 4 times just to get the general idea of the the passage. Did any one give a name to Mr Head? His initials where M.R Head right? I called him michael :3 and said that I was euphoric when he left, not sure if thats gonna convince the examiner, but hey! at least I squeezed euphoric in there!

    Yeah I did. I foink it rather easy actually but Question 3 *The summary) was rather annoying as since the notes from Passage B about some stupid Empires Villa was sort of hard to pick your 10 notes from. Question 2 (The directed writing) WAAAAS easy!!!. I was zoo happy when I found that we had to do it in a form of a Letter. Wbu???

    ermm well question 1 was okay i guess, I kind of enjoyed answering it (hopefully this don't backfire on me cry lmao) question 3 was also okay but for my summary i think ill onlyget 4 because I did't have the time to check it and I know i've got a mistake in their somewhere. Question 2 was a tip i mean seriously where th were the pharses/words, still managed to complete the whole paper but had no time to double check sigh.
