    I did Variant 2

    My analysis got progressively ****ter :/ and I wrote way too much(400ish) for the speech. I'll just hope my coursework/speaking and listening doesn't get moderated down and rely on that instead. :/

    You?

    P.S Do you know when we find out the results for these?

    Question 1 was a talk which I was hoping for and question 2 was alright. I got to question 3 confident because it's usually the easiest and I crashed and burned. I got seven points and I couldn't see any more which meant I had to drag really irrelevant points from the text. I need 39 for an A* so I think I'm gonna get an A on this one how did you do?

    that's cool
    Because i was taught to do question 3 first, followed by question 1 then question 2 , i spent wayyy too long on question three and trying to find the 15 points, which i think wasn't too bad- only worry is if i put more than the point grouped on one line.

    Personally i found question 1 a bit confusing trying to write about each bullet point which seemed to be grouped (eg i think one was to write what the parachute students will be doing AND why) -it was like writing about 2 points in one lol

    and question 2 was okay i think chose the wrong quote about the woman's parachuting experience -i think i mentioned about her 'parachute opening like a flower' instead of choosing the 'body hurtling' quote
    hope i did okay though,
