    This is a bit of a weird question, but do you read all the sources before you attempt question one? Or do you read source one then do question one, source 2 then q2, source 3 then q3 etc? Or do you read all of them then reread them when you get to the relevant question?
    Source 1 -> Question 1
    Source 2 -> Question 2
    Source 3 -> Question 3

    Another question. If they ask you to argue do you write both sides?
    For example, 'Argue that school uniform should be abolished'.
    Do i just argue why it should be abolished, or why it shouldn't too?

    Organise your points well, structure your answer to make it clear to the examiner what you are talking about. Write the arguments for, then against, then explain your view.

    Good Luck!! Don't be nervous, you'll be ok! I hope all goes well for you!

    I agree, but I managed to get all the questions done cause that was my main target in the exam..
    However!.. Question 5 was 16 marks! So not even attempting it does put you in a unstable situation, wish you the best on your result though
