    1. How it impacts young people in particular, e.g. they follow celebrity cult, so girls for example. are made to believe that they're supposed to look a certain way etc

    2. Waste of money - advertising results in the belief amongst us that we HAVE to buy something, so essentially, we're wasting money, could create a succession of problems

    3. Misrepresentation of things - e.g. using images from religion to promote advertising, which is belittling, diminished value of product, creates discomfort.
    Wow! These are great! Did you have time to talk about advertising techniques and positives in as much detail though?

    for sport i talked about
    advantages:
    keeping fit to avoid illnesses, and obesity.
    combat stress
    having a hobby
    future career such as wayne rooney XD

    then for making children do more exercise,
    i said that its hard for them because they are distracted by our society of new technologies and stuff.
    so we should create new sports that are fun, instead of sticking to old and classic sports that seem boring.
    and i also said there should be more pe lessons in school instead of how it is now, which is 1 hour a week.

    -then the time ran out -

    do you guys think this is enough?
    i didnt know what to say to be honest.

    I'm really worried about the A2 exam to be honest because from all the past papers I've done I got pretty average marks it's really frustrating. I'm feeling quite positive about the essay though but I don't want to be too cocky haha. What about you?
    Me too I'm so worried, I'm hoping the essay will be okay, what have you done for the topics, we've done a book and a film.

    Did you do anything about why young people don't so sport? That was included in the question.
    I did:
    Advantages -
    - aids psychological wellbeing
    - helps keep in good health
    Why young people don't do exercise-
    - too much emphasis on school work so not enough time
    - rise in electronic items means they'd rather play on a tablet or sth
    To encourage them -
    - parents/teachers teach them the benefits of sport
    - big sporting events like Olympics which bring people together.

    Yeah, wrote about 5 techniques in detail. My essay was super long! I had an hour to write it which was sufficient for me

    I think that should be fine. Perhaps you could have said something about competitive spirit/teamwork for the first part, but they don't expect you to have every single possible point! Overall, you've made enough solid points

    I did
    1.Keeps fit/healthy both physically and mentally
    Team camaraderie, good feeling when you win
    2. New technologies distract us. There are better things to do
    This is a sedentary world at the moment. It's easier not to do sport
    3.More PE lessons
    As prime minister, I would introduce more awareness campaigns (using si clause)
    Parents should encourage their children to do sport

    oh and for the essay I did the sport one, I did paragraphs on
    why they don't do it
    -they don't like playing it because they're busy with technology
    -they don't want to play sport because it's regarded as violent in the media
    advantages
    -it helps the to become more sociable
    -improves their health (which i conflicted with the fact if you stop doing it later in life, it makes you worse than if you never did it!)
    and to encourage them
    -hold extra curricular classes in school
    -stop them from using technology

    then i did some poxy intro and conclusion with some basic vocab that might pick my grade up, I already know I'm a little screwed as I did a completely screw up and did the wrong conjugation of fait for 'ils' all the way through!

    About how many points do you need to do for a top-band content mark? If it is a three-part essay, then is three solid points for each bit (so nine developed points in total) enough?

    Cool! Glad I wasn't making crap up pretty sure you'll do well with essay! Wasn't the rest of the paper so gross?
    It was alright, It was certainly a bit more difficult than other papers. Sure I've lost loads of silly marks on the grammar section though

    so it actually asked why we don't do sport? oh god.
    i have failed.
    think my brain just ignored that from the stupid reading and listening questions D;

    I did the advertising essay. I did techniques:
    - les spots
    -la musique
    -les ritournelles publicitaires
    -les affiches
    -l'erotisme (ahem nicole scherzinger ahem)

    Then advantages-
    -si on se permet d'etre pousse a acheter, on contribuera a l'economie ce qui beneficiera soi et sa famille a l'avenir
    - les campagnes de sante protegent le public
    - les organisations caritatives nous tiennent au courant (le progres de SIDA, ce qui se passe) et ca rend le public plus genereux ce qui est admirable

    Then disadvantages-
    - il existe une risque d'esposition a un ouvrage inapproprie
    - ca encourage le conflit entre des adultes et leurs enfants
    - ca promouvoit une societe de consommation- un embarras du choix alors on se sent accable
    -solliciter les gens a se precipiter vers les magasins pour acheter des produits meme s'ils n'en ont vraiment pas besoin (integrated within techniques section though)

    Conclusion- toutes choses considerees, on peut deduire que les publicitaires se servent des methodes extremement efficaces pour repandre un message, vendres des produits (+something else i cant remember) pourtant en fin, something something something la pub mente et est insidieuse.

    It was sorta built in to the first question. Sounds like you might have incorporated it a little in some of your paragraphs on how to encourage them, so could still get the content marks

    yeah it was really hard! you must have a class full of native speakers xD and the recordings were so short they only spoke like 3 words, was quite annoying and all the recordings were separate so it was annoying.

    Ours were all separate also, but on ours we could press play all and then the tracks would play continously.
