    35 minutes - listening
    40 minutes - reading
    45 minutes - essay

    however you can finish the listening and reading within 45 minutes max and spend over an hour doing the essay

    If advertising does come up can someone just run through the main advantages and disadvantages of it
    Advantages:
    1. They can be informative/educative - anti-smoking/anti-drinking adverts, for example.
    2. Charities depend on them to persuade people to give money to a good cause.
    3. Sometimes they're creative/artistic so they encourage creativity and originality etc.
    4. They benefit the economy because they create new jobs.

    Disadvantages:
    1. They can be very expensive to make.
    2. They're often sexist - they use inappropriate images of women etc.
    3. They're annoying when they interrupt shows/films!!!

    That's what I've got anyway, hope it helps a bit!!

    I agree, I don't think La Publicité has been an essay question for years. I am so ready for it!

    I usually say something about it persuading people to buy things they dont need and then possibly they spend too much and get into debt

    Has anyone else been told by a teacher about a change in format in this exam for tomorrow? Apparently different sections will be weighted differently??

    And if anyone has pros and cons/sample essays on music I would be entirely greatful

    what are your points for music?xx
    "Donnez votre opinion sur l’importance de la musique dans la vie des jeunes."
    1. It helps you to destress after a long day at school/relax before exams
    2. It can make you happy when you're sad/something bad has happened
    3. It's a way of showing your mood/personality
    4. It helps you make friends if you share a common interest
    5. You can introduce/share music with your friends so it's social
    6. Music concerts/festivals are social - you go with a group of friends and you can make new friends there

    Hope this helps!!

    Does anyone know of any other questions we could get for the music topic? Or would it pretty much just be this one?
