    If Tierversuche, or Abtreibung came up I would be so happy
    I would do the literature essay as well and I pray it's themes or why the main character is important omg

    Wouldn't mind a nice Abtreibung question to come up, I think the Todesstrafe is quite likely too. I'm going to be choosing the historical/geographical essay question in the exam, so I hope at least one of the questions is nice.

    I've been doing the creative pieces so I guess those can't be predicted.. but anything on themes or something for the literature question since cramming in extended knowledge is kind of difficult in 250 words.

    Yeah themes would be fab, and we've been thinking maybe something about the author will come up? Or how relevant is the book to a modern reader/authors life and things

    Hey guys, doing the historical essay but does anyone have any predictions for the discursive essays? Also wondering if anyone has any useful phrases or anything to help achieve top marks?

    I've got no idea, I just hope it doesn't come up.. Maybe talk about die Rolle der Frau, or how people are treated differently in less developed countries and are forced to work long hours with low wages? idk

    My teacher thinks Abtreibung could come up, but it's really hard to predict discursive essays so who know, could be anything. I'm not the best at German, but I'd recommend just checking that you're using a wide variety of ideas and not just limiting yourself to a few, as this usually drops your marks down by quite a bit.

    Why do people think Abtreibung is likely to come up? It came up in June 12 and Edexcel don't normally tend to repeat essay titles.

    You're probably right, I didn't even notice Abtreibung came up - was just passing on what I was told.

    I did the historical study and that was about social changes in your chosen time period, which I thought went quite well. I didn't read the other questions so I'm not sure how good they were.

    Well, the quality of language is only worth 6 marks compared to reading, research and understanding which is worth 30 marks, so grammar isn't too important. You could get away with fake facts, depending how realistic they sound I guess haha. You've gotta have shown research and understanding of your topic to get top marks though.
