    I took Geography but it was a really weird paper like I have no idea how I did at all you had to summarise an article that was imossible to understand in your own words.
    I agree, I did the same paper and found it very physics-y :eek:

    Did you summarise the first process or the second? I did the first because I could somewhat understand it. No idea what it had to do with Geography though

    Nope it was the same for me! On the first exam he said 'you have under one minute left' and I nearly had a heart attack because I still had another question to go

    How did you find history? What did you write for the first question? When I first looked at the source I was like what on earth is this, why is a baby falling off the railing, and why has a man got a baby/person on a stick in the background?

    I also did the first because it sounded like the pressure belts we studied, in relation to the Sahara desert, they may have been two totally different topics though.

    Hey someone else who's doing maths and a language what are your other options? Completely the other way round for me, French was a disgrace but maths was quite good

    Don't know the exact date but the principal said that it would take 10 - 14 days

    I think it went okay but I didn't finish the last question. I also did History and luckily the source was one that I had already covered back in year 10!

    I studied that source last year! It was about how people resorted to drinking Gin because there was no reliable water supply as it was contaminated. I also wrote about how the people were possibly a working class population because of the types of clothes they were wearing. I guess it was open to own interpretation. What did you write?
