    planning time for (a) = 30 minutes
    for (b) = 30-45 minutes.

    I was told about 15mins on A and no more than 30mins on B, although im looking ot spend less time then that on planning for B. they always say its quality more then quantity, but i think what they really want is a large quantity of quality!! We were given an example answer that got full marks on A and B and that was long and full of quotations and references and of the highest quality!! Anyhows, im so scared about this exam, Im just going to try and write as much as I can and use as many relevent examples as I can.

    Also, we were advised to draw a planning grid, with boxes for each of the five extracts, theres an example here.

    oh ok then, thats good. I'm absolutely petrified about the exam although I'm fairly confident because question B is always the same just different sources.
