    They shouldn't. If everyone is given the same amount of time then it is fair. I think that tighter time makes it easier for the board to distinguish the stronger from the weaker candidates.

    I did questions 1, 2 and 11. Doing Option V and Z.

    They were all typical questions.

    Don't get on your high horse, i understand why the board sets limits, i'll just add that if sum VVV annoying teachers took their heals off whn walking into the gym then maybe i would have had an extra 30 seconds instead of thinking, "how annoying im trying to work!" but doens't matter now probs wouldn't have gained any more marks anyway.

    i think its more important to see who can properly evaluate and analyse info and who actually has good history knowledge than to see who can manage their time better so i think it should have been a two hr paper.

    Maybe ideally so, but it is possible that with 2 hrs everyone would do so much better that different bands of ability would be less distinguishable.

    I think that its only just possible to get decent answers down in that time, but you have to write non-stop.
    Its should definately be 2hrs. I just managed to finish, but I suppose I could have done with more time to think and plan...
    then again even if there was more time, I doubt there would be differences in people who get which grades, because everyone is in the same boat, and grade boundaries would be higher
