It is a bit annoying that exams for this module are only taken in June so there aren't that many past papers. I wish there were more!

I'm doing this exam too! I've studied 'Volver' (film) and 'La Casa de Bernarda Alba' (play) as my cultural topics, but I think I'll probably just talk about the film in the actual exam

According to examiner's reports, La casa de Bernarda Alba is the most popular cultural topic to write about. Although personally I'm leaning towards writing about a director instead.

I'm studying 'Como Agua Para Chocolate' (book) and Diarios de Motocicleta (film).

The hardest bit I think is remembering quotes!

Buena suerte a todos!

I'm doing La Casa De Bernarda Alba as my play, then El Laberinto Del Fauno for film.
I agree with everyone else that La Casa is the easiest.

Are the questions pretty much the same every year?

How are people finding translations?
This is by far the worst aspect of the exam for me, particularly the English into Spanish. I'm so concerned about losing more than half of the marks. Does anyone have any idea which of the topics is more likely to come up? I wish I could find some vocab sheets with words which often come up on these sentences, or at least a list of grammar points to look out for e.g. subjunctive phrases which are commonly used. At the moment I'm just working through AQA's online examples. starting to panic, Tuesday is not far now :eek:
