    On the translation, if there are numbers do we have to write the numbers out or can we just put the number? E.g if we had to translate '20 people' can we just write '20 personas' or do we have to say 'veinte personas'

    Usually if the passage uses numerical digits I use numerical digits eg. 20 but if the passage writes the number in words then I translate it into words

    Anyone else going into this exam cold? No prep done at all... too much maths to revise but my level of Spanish was great a month ago so I hope I'll be good

    That's true - it's so tough to know what to revise for the essay because it can be so broad! How many quotes are you learning? Or how are you choosing which ones to learn?
    Do we have to learn quotes? I've written several essays throughout the year and I never put quotes in them, but I have gotten pretty decent marks.

    I was thinking this earlier I never use quotes and my teachers have never said you have to, I was looking at the mark scheme earlier and it just says you need evidence but not specifically quotes, but if other people are going to use them I think I might learn some quickly?

    You have to refer to the text/film but this doesn't necessarily have to be quotes, just using detailed explanations of an event or scene is just as good x

    The mark schemes don't specify quotes, but I can't think of any better evidence. I personally think it'd be a waste of time to try and describe a scene and not have the point of the paragraph get lost. If I were you, I'd learn a couple of versatile quotes (about love, food and other key themes etc). But totally up to you

    Night before revision here! I've been panicking about both bio and Spanish but decided that I could probably try get through the Spanish without revising but bio? Hell no.

    Day before exam revision expert here. I've honestly gone through exams with this technique so far, and none of them went badly (below a B I think). I'm still thinking whether I should bother revising for spanish, as I have Core 3 from maths on Tuesday which I'm more worried about.
    Also, anyone doing Lorca for their essay?

    I have C3 on Tue too, C4 on Friday, and S2 on the following Monday. Like someone else said, I might be able to get away without revising for Spanish, but definitely not for maths.

    Yup, C3 and C4, I'm done with my applied module tho since I did S1 on Wednesday. I guess we could both study for spanish for 2-3 hours, then just do maths. ^^

    I think the problem with Spanish is I don't know where to start. Like with maths it's obvious, you have questions you do them. It's easy to make a plan and do it. But with humanity-ish subjects it's more difficult. Wtf do I revise

    Just grammar based exercises. Assuming you're okay with the vocabulary used for listening, just focus on grammatical structures and verb tenses to use in the written section.

    How do I avoid dropping silly marks in the listening and reading parts?

    Whats your guys tips when it comes to the reading ones and it says to write (N) for not mentioned and (F) for false??? Sometimes I put down false when it is actually not mentioned and its silly to drop such marks!!
