    Is everyone who's taking their Oral exam this month/next month learning all 3 topics in the book? Or going to only learn 2, because obviously only two tarjetas can come up..

    I'm learning all of them. There are some cards from previous years which I would have hated to answer, even though they're from what I would call my stronger topics. I don't want to find myself in the situation in the exam where I have to answer a card which I can barely generate four points for in the one minute presentation, so I'd rather play it safe and learn them all.

    OK, how are you revising for it? Are you revising key vocab and just advantages and disadvantages from the book? I'm really struggling.

    I'm probably going to go over all of them, including vocab for just in case! At least you'll have enough to say whichever card comes up and if you happen to know more vocab for one topic then you won't need to spend as much time on it

    Yeah, lots of vocab and different phrases for each topic. I've done most of the previous cards from 2010-14 as a lot of the points can be recycled for similar cards so I find that useful. When's your exam?

    Okay, thank you. Have you also memorised your answers for your cultural topics?
    My exam is the 4th of May. How about you?

    OK, fair enough. What have you done about your cultural topics? Do you already know the questions for that?

    Well I'm doing Lorca; La Casa de Bernarda Alba and Almodovar; Volver and Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios, since we did Lorca in December I'm focusing mostly on that, as I don't actually remember it that well atm... We just chose our questions this week in fact, I know roughly the kinds of questions I will get, e.g. about symbolism, women, the era that kind of stuff. I'm mostly going to brainstorm these key areas and revise like that.

    What about you?

    I know my main points for the questions on the cultural topics, we were given ~130 questions or so in total to answer for them so I'm not even going to attempt proper memorisation :lol: I just hope they don't ask anything completely abstract! Mine's 27th April
