Oooh I hope so...
I don't think relationships have come up before in spanish, or questions that ask for a specific scene?

I don't think so, but I feel like they're likely to stick to their normal set of question types (well I hope so lol)

My teacher has predicted that it will be to describe a scene in the play/book and how it reflects the themes of the novel.

She guessed right last year so that may be possible!

What are everyone elses predictions? And how are you revising?

Hey guys!

I'm doing El Laberinto del Fauno for the arts and literature question, I have a feeling a scene will come up as well, possible linked to themes or something like that!

How are you revising for the exam? especially for discursive and translation?

I'm doing the German exam on the 18th, so even though it's not same subject they appear to be linked in some way, right? In German at least we've had pretty much every essay apart from historical context and scenes. Last year was techniques, before that was themes , then an important moment in the book, followed character development, and finally a relationship between two characters.

It seems likely, do questions repeat themselves between subjects or are they always different?

Discursive I'm hoping that Immigration comes up, it was my unit 3 exam, and we haven't had an immigration question for two years, so hopefully there's something on it. For translation I'm just reading a lot and making sure I'm in the language zone before the exam. What about you?

Yeah I would be happy if immigration came up too, I've done a few essay on that before! I'm doing the same really, just doing some past translations then gonna go over grammar and stuff like that!

The questions repeat themselves!- a scene hasn't come up since 2011 or something so its likely!

German hasn't ever had a historical context one before either, so both of them are likely for me, I doubt they'll have the same titles between subjects though will they?

Yeah I don't think they'll use the same questions for both languages but I do think that something to do with a scene will come up for Spanish, possible linked to history or a theme or something

Hiya! Yeah I'm hoping for an A overall too but worried what the essays will be on! Are you doing a film/book for the research essay? I'm doing el laberinto del fauno. Do you have any ideas of what the question could be on for the literature essay?

I'm doing Mar Adentro - I was going to do El Laberinto but I didn't think it would be as easy to write about. People are saying theme which I hope will be the case. I'm beginning to panic a bit.. I go through phases of being okay with it and then freaking out a little. ahhhhhhh

Are you hoping to do it at uni?
