    I'm doing the exam. I feel quite confident about the essay questions. The questions are so vague that they're so much easier than unit 1 essays.

    I'm feeling pretty much the same - there's not an awful lot more you can do. I'm making sure I know the cultural topic really well but generally the essay questions are always quite similar so shouldn't be too much of a problem

    La Casa de Bernarda Alba and Pan's Labyrinth, but I want to do the essay on the former

    I'm just going to look through the booklet for each of my cultural topics and try to cram in some last minute vocab. There's nothing else I can do really. I hope it'll be ok though

    I'm sitting this exam along with the French A2 the week after. I'm feeling pretty good as I haven't fallen below an A/A* all year, however I do worry that nerves in the exam will get the better of me. To prepare, I've done the past paper, and have just been immersing myself in the language whilst revising key vocabulary. I don't believe there is much more you can do, if you've put in the hard work and effort over the 2 years it should pay off.

    Hey

    I've noticed that every other year it is a question on the environment and it was pollution last year so I think something about the multicultural society!

    How are you feeling overall about the exam?

    I don't know what the rules are, but the examiners reports say that candidates with a narrower focus do better. So one region might be more successful
