    I'm doing it tomorrow and the best tip I can give you is to go through all of the topics that you could get the essay question on. My teacher predicts that's it could be on the EU and the immigrants.

    I'm similar down here as I moved away from Poland when I was 8, I liked the first part of the exam the translation was okay but I didn't like the short sentences and some of the words were weird. And in the essay I just tried to mention everything I could think of. What about you?

    same here, i came when i was 5. i found the first word questions really good actually, and the translation wasn't overly bad although some words i had no clue what they meant! but the essay was terrible, i wrote about work, family and rights mainly but i wish i wrote about honestly hhaha you?

    Yeah I wasn't too sure on some of the words either. And the essay was a tough one, like I think I wrote how values change through time and I wrote about family money and culture. So I don't really know what to expect.

    It really doesn't, wrote so much crap. And yes I think the wait will kill me. And yes I'm planning to do A2. I'm getting all of the information for it on Friday like the books and the films I need to do. Are you?
