I did 12 pages and probably got 70 marks or full marks. However my writing was really untidy and I am worried that they can lower my grade.
in the end I wrote:
'Dear examiner, I am very sorry for my untidy writing. If i had more time I would do it much better'
Izzy!, you're really big headed! "probably got full marks"!! You said that for Maths as well. Urgh. Even if you think it you don't say it! Although I do agree with you, my writing was absolutely awful. I could barely read it myself, I was gonna do a note but decided against it, didn't want to seem like I was sucking up as it where. But I can understand why you did one - mine was awful too.
I thought the questions were ok. I wrote fu cking loads! Oops...I filled the booklet altogether, within the first 45 minutes, and needed 6 extra sheets, but they're double sided so I guess that's 12 pages, and however many are in the booklet? How many are in the booklet? I thought they were ok, but I went waaaaaay overboard on question one.
NSiky, I actually think 10% of it is the sources, not the knowledge! It was the knowledge based paper after all
I filled it with knowledge...that I'd acquired like an hour beforehand. I'd misread my timetable for like the last 5 weeks, and had assumed all along that History was tomorrow. Imagine my horror yesterday at 6pm when I realised it was today! Argh!
Oh well, it wasn't too bad. What kind of thing did people put in their answers?
Oh, and NSiky, for the "Heil Hitler" one I think I said something about it being, um, not that reliable because it was from a "german newspaper" in the "mid 1930s", and I said that a large majority, if not all, newspapers in Germany 1930s were Nazi run. I also said that it provided very little information; it didn't say anything about the altered syllabus to teach Nazi ideologies, and that it didn't mention that only half of all boys had joined the Nazi Youth, and only 15% of girls had joined the League of German Maidens, so that in 1939, they had to make 'em compulsory. I said something about the Swing movement and the Edelweiss (sp?) Pirates too. Oh, and that the government had "ordered" them to do it, and thus, it wasn't their actual preference.
