i did specification B... what a waste of almost 2 hours of my life. i don't care about castles!
and i did question 3- the one about the arts
what did everyone else think?
Castles??? Castles??? I couldnt care less!! What a load of poop it was. I did number 2 on the Oxbridge thingy, my essay was crap as I was just ranting but im not too bothered now.
Cant believe I bothered getting out of bed for that
Todays paper was like last weeks (and last years) - easy, straightforward, with plenty of scope for top mark answers.
The castles question was great, with the bullet points focussing in on the important bits - i wrote about how they increase the number of tourists in the UK, contributing to GDP; how they have educational benefits, with being part of the KS3 history syllabus and many schools opting to take students on field trips there, and finally how the land surrounding castles, and the castles themselves promote sustainable ecosystems through the conservation of huge areas of land.
For section B I did question three, which was strangely worded, but I managed to write several pages on how music/art/literature ask questions of a different sort to science, but equally importantly.
I take it none of you actually need the grade then?
Yeah lou, I did the same questions as you, castles then that arty-farty sciencey one. What a waste of my life! almost two hours of essay writing wasting my brain before I had to do my chemistry exam this afternoon.
Thinking about it I don't even know why I bothered, my uni's don't even accept it has an A-level (which is fair enough - you could train monkeys to do most gen studs papers - now theres an idea for a PHD research project! lol.)
