The quotes available for question 2 were a joke, question 1 required a lot of inferring and I didn't finish my summary so yup an A* is a hallucination.

Yeah Question 1 was calm the last point about what you would do for the rest of the holiday was a little tricky so I flopped that part but question 2 there was nothing to explode I wanted to talk about pathetic fallacy and use English terms but the quotes available was so rubbish. Question 3 the 15 points were easy but I rushed the summary.

Yes like "(something) gowns" "rainbow of..." and "tratty blah blah" and had to guess the meaning and the effect

Question 2 was honestly awful, I ended up using 'complaining loudly' as a result of not knowing what to quote and I know a lot of my bullet points were probably wrong due to rushing

For Question 1 it took me 15 minutes to understand the boring passage

But question 2 I had to guess the meaning and the effect because I didn't understand most of the vocabulary they've used

Question 3 was the easiest for me

Can't wait for that bee grade

Of all exams to f up on I'm glad it was this one tbh at least now I know this isn't a joke and not to look at invigilators instead of writing as if I've never seen people before
