I wrote pretty much the same as you except for questions 6 and 7 (wrote the correct definition for pilot study then crossed it out :mad:) so I'm really hoping you did well haha!
I didn't find it too bad to be honest, was definitely expecting it to be worse than it was

Your documents points refer to disadvantages of using documents rather than advantages of using documents.

Advantages can include things like; allow an insight into the writers personal views - especially in diaries; they are easier to access; more time effective; more cost effective; They may be the ONLY way of studying things from the past.

One of mine is mentioning the past , if they were written without the researcher in mind doesn't this mean they have increased validity and less researcher bias??
