Hey everyone,

For my two cultural topics I've picked a region (Mexico) and a painter. I'm looking at the past paper essay questions and they look horrific. How am I supposed to write so much about the economy of a country or the techniques of a painter? It seems like there's so much terminology to remember and I'm scared I won't have enough content when it comes to the exam...

I'm also confused on how much to write or how to structure it. Last year it was a bit like:
Intro
P1
P2
P2
Conclusion
But this year we need to write much more...

Any tips?

Not sure if the same applies to you because I'm doing an author and a painter, but most of the essay questions are 2 part questions in which (a) and (b) link. Therefore you should try and split the question into (a) and (b) and then answer accordingly.

For instance your answer could look like:

Intro
P1a
P1b
P2a
P2b
P3a
P3b
Conclusion

Depending on how you would want to write it.

Hope this helps

No no no this is completely wrong! You only answer one of the parts-either a) or b)

I meant two parts as in, there are two parts to one question . E.g. The question may be - 12(a)"Analiza las acciones de dos personajes principales en la novela. En tu opinión ¿que revelan de su personalidad y actitudes?"

And if you were to break that question up:

Part (a/i) would be "Analiza las acciones de dos personajes principales en la novela."

And part (b//ii) would be "En tu opinión ¿que revelan de su personalidad y actitudes?".

Sorry if I explained that in a confusing way before.
