    The essay questions are always really similar so rewriting essays until you can basically recite them helps for me.

    I've been doing past papers mainly in class. I do much better on the listening nowadays than I think. The reading section just requires technique- it all comes down to understanding and answering those questions. From now until the exam, I'll be planning answers to the essay questions that have come up. Why are they so picky with the translation from German to English- I keep getting 6/10

    Haha same here. My teacher says it's often easier for people to translate something into their own native language than into the target language.

    Either way those marks for the Eng to German are precious- I'll do what I can to get them!

    It's always that part of the exam where I seem to fall down, I can get near perfect in the listening and reading but the translations will literally make my grade fall by two... It's so annoying!
