    I think that me and you are the only one who think this. I didn't like it either.
    I really found it hard to find arguments!

    Same, this girl finished twenty minutes early and I was like wtf? How is that possible?! I finished my conclusion just 1 minute before the time was up, so I just made it.

    Yes I found arguments difficult to look for, combined with a lack of sleep and BK on smoking that was not too good for me. I think I passed the DME though, the few arguments that I had were well backed up. Did you do against or for?

    And sources I am sure. I was told this by my MS teacher. Maybe someone else here can confirm it.

    Usually on marking scheme it says in bold that: ALL sources must be used- even saying this on the exam papers. So it must be pretty significant .

    Same here...at least, I don't ever have to touch my notes again.
    Do you know the appeal rates for Higher MS? I just know that this year is the last year for them tehe. I may need one if I don't get an A. I really want an A. I just want to know if I have one or not now!

    And I will burning my notes . No MS ever again . That is the thought which is keeping me going today.

    Maybe go and ask your teacher? Hopefully she can clarify that matter for you. I hope that you are not penalized too harshly for that if the rest of your DME is good.

    I honestly cannot really remember now! For the arguments against though, I argued that it would be creating a nanny state and then countered it as part of the rebuttal.

    Hehe...I may have been guilty of that on a few occasions. I am not sure but if your statistics are WAY off then you would receive no credit. They mark positively in exams, you cannot lose marks but only gain them if that makes sense.
