    I was wondering if everything I write in my answer question 5 should be true. For example, I was given a practise question which was:

    Write an entry for your blog which describes a place that you have visited which has affected you or stayed in your memory and explain why this is so.

    I haven't gone on a holiday since I was a child, so I only vaguely remember what it was like. Would I be allowed to make up a holiday or not, as it is the non-fiction part of the paper?

    Of course! Our teacher tells us to almost always make stuff up in the last 2 questions - so long as it sounds realistic and you can describe it, go for it! The examiner will never check if you've really done it.

    You can completely make everything up as long as it isn't too unrealistic Good luck!
