    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!
    When it was a letter I was so happy...

    Same, if most people had low marks, they may bring the grade boundaries down.I didn't understand passage A and it took me so long to even work out who Maria was. Am i the only one who had to read the text 3 or more times to find out who Maria was and what her part in the text was ?

    I thought M.R Head was Maria Head

    For Q2: Was an effect of some of the quotes, for example "entrancing",that is showed how effective Maria's writing was?

    Q1: Great, got good overall points and make some decent developments I feel, 15/20 at most.

    Q2: Completely screwed up, didn't get the overall effects for half of the words, 7/10 at most.

    Q3: Lovely question, most confident that I achieved the bulk of my marks here, 16/20 at most.

    Predicted Marks: 38/50

    That is because it was a leaked image of the paper, it was deleted from the website and 'doesn't exist anymore'

    Looking at the unofficial mark scheme I think I did way better than I thought I did! Hopefully it's enough for an A my dream of getting an A* was shattered after figuring out what the hell the passage was on about hahaha!
    The only thing I did different from most people is that for bp3 in q1 I wrote that maria (me) is going to teach the husband a lesson and that he should think about other peoples opinions etc and wrote nothing to do with staying in the hospital, going out to town, playing with the cat while drinking mint tea etc!

    Question 1 was alright, enjoyed the passage actually. I did ramble on a bit though. Question 2 was okay, I just seemed to have way too many ideas and wrote WAY too much (over a page over word limit ) and for Question 3 I mucked it up a bit. I had 15 minutes to do all of Q3, so quickly found as many points as possible (left 2 bullets blank) and wrote pretty much what I needed to (but obviously did not summarize the full 15 bullets).
