    i found the listening okay actually but the reading was a complete joke, even the people who usually get A* and full marks couldnt understand the last question, especially when they were talking about what she wouldn't miss about Paris
    Really I thought the opposite !

    Yah, I also did the horrible Welsh board
    Yeah, that extract was horrible! Had no idea what to write so was winging it a bit!
    I chose the candy essay question, I think I made enough points but I'm not certain... The poetry was horrible. I wrote loads about the 1st one and hardly anything on the 2nd, and I think I missed some key metaphors/language devices...
    This is literally me, the poetry was just so misleading.

    I decided on Snowball making the flag, creating Animal Comittees and declaring the single maxim. What did you pick?

    Yeah timing was a big issue for lots of people. My friend didn't have enough time to do question 6 and it's worth 20 marks! Luckily their practical was really good so they'll be fine

    Exam: Geography A Unit 1
    Exam Board: Edexcel
    Feeling:


    I really liked it, especially the six mark questions. A bit unsure about some of the 3 and 4 mark questions as to whether I put enough information or examples

    Which board is rs the hardest for? AQA and Edexcel look simple, i think OCR is probably the hardest for Rs, anyone agree?

    The Crucible questions were horrible : ( I didn't revise Parris very well, so I had to make things up and hope it makes sense XD Still hope that I didn't fail that badly though.

    Latin (language paper 1)
    OCR
    Feeling:
    My knowledge of greek mythology paid off ! Whoo! It really helped to be honest - tho the paper wasn't that hard considering. Let's just see if I made any stupid mistakes.

    Geography (physical paper - unit 1 or something...?)
    AQA
    Feeling:
    It was a decent paper - so much map skill stuff, and then all the questions were limited to like one line of the spec.. (WHERE ARE MY DESERTS) And the things I spent least time on came up. Geez. Still, hopefully my 'educated guessing' paid off. All those stats I couldn't use.... *sighs* Thank god it was all a bit 'vague' and wishy washy for the longer 8 markers so hopefully I'll least get a few marks. whoo

    It was ok, during the exam i thought it was pretty hard but looking back it seems to have gone rather well. Just expected geography to be easier....
