How can it be disabled? Disabled is in part B of the anthology.

I'm pretty annoyed that there aren't any past papers about Passage to Africa. I have no idea what its gonna ask, could you guys theorize a possible question for it

I think its quite unlikely they will ask about climate change webpage because there isn't really much to talk about

To be honest - I don't really mind what's comes up, just hoping the questions are not too complicated and are fair suitable to answer.

What's do you guys have got for your speaking and listening?

I got 89 - worth 10%
Do you guys know how many more marks I need to aim for in paper 1 and 2 to get a C?

My study plan at the moment is using pass papers (only)

PTA: Normally they ask about thoughts and feelings(of the writer!).

Ah - there's a lot to talk about the climate change webpage! doesn't look it, but there is.

The questions are never really too complicated to answer! they are a simple sentence which is a question.

Getting a C overall in English is about 50%. Considering the marks of paper 1(60) and paper 2(30) added together is 90. You'd need around 45 to get a C.

S+L is 10%. As the whole English Lang qualification is out of 100, 10 marks must then (theoretically) be left for S+L. So since you got 89 (out of 100 or 120 or whateva the total was), they'll probs do an average and give a mark out of 10. Say the whole mark was 100 and you got 89, they'd give you 9/10 marks (A*).

It's gone in a order- Beach Safety is technical next in the order but Passage to Africa, and the two Climate change texts have never come up before.

Hopefully they bring up a text they haven't used. I can't be asked to write about a text that I already done as a mock.

Currently I going through all the pass papers and looking at the mark scheme.

I'm pretty sure it's going to be passage to Africa or one of the climate change texts. I think the q wud b lik how does the writer present his thoughts and feelings for passage to Africa. And for the climate change i think its lik how does the writer create danger or make the reader get more involved or something
