    I didn't like question 3! I wasn't sure what sort of tone to answer it, so I made it quite sober, but a tad conversational in parts.

    The question 2 article was easy enough (loads to choose from!)

    The summary was OK. My teacher always says that you should never put 'the author says' etc, but because it specifically asked about the guys views, I put 'A.S.Neill thinks.....' etc. Bad move?

    Not a bad move at all. But remember the trick was not to quote for question 1 because it's merely testing your ability to paraphrase something. The Specimen paper having been about UFOs, I was expecting something a little more "we're trying to appeal to what we think teenagers are interested in" - what a refreshing change therefore.

    i thought the paper wasn't too tricky, question three was slightly strange although question one gave me ideas for it. question two was probably the hardest but it gave many options to talk about.

    Don't worry, I'm not that stupid! (sorry to anyone who did!)
