    culture/morality is included in the french- theres a separate essay (in english!) after the french bit on culture etc- it's all one paper. maths/technology is another paper, and society/politics is the exam thats next week...you should have a thrilling case study on the EU for that....

    i don't know why you've got it listed on your timetable...i only have my language specification listed on mine

    you do have a maths section, in the "science, maths nd tech" paper. aren't you timetabled to do that? Btw, french comes under the "culture, arts and morality paper" and isn't a separate exam on their own. you shld have 3 papers for A2:

    *science, maths nd tech
    *society, politics and economics
    *cultures, arts nd morality (inc. a language)
