    Your teacher is crazy, you only have to one question which is on your cultural topics. Show her the insert for the June 2014 paper, there's no capital punishment. Maybe she's looking at the wrong exam board lool
    She definitely is crazy lol, my principal decided to have a meeting with me and I thought that I was in trouble but he was actually asking about her during class and her teaching attitude and methods. I was legit like "Miss I've looked at past papers and there's only one essay which is on the cultural topics." And she completely disagreed and refused to believe me. She's used to teaching edexcel so I just had a quick look at their papers and geusss what? They've got two essays, discursive and creative, focusing on cultural topics and syllabus. Thankfully I'm on proper study leave so I'm not seeing her again. Thanks for reassuring me haha

    I swear I have also got in trouble for giving my Spanish teacher attitude when I was merely telling her she was wrong

    So just focus on a cultural topic

    I think with the new spec thy have to focus on actual certain literature and stuff, like gcse English, so more creative essays. Thankfully we're still doing this spec!

    Also YouTube. There are some good videos about independence, industry, tourism. They all have transcripts you can print, translate and annotate. Good all round practice x

    A play sounds brutal to be honest! I don't know why anyone would choose it!

    Have any of you guys been given like a 'guideline' on how to get 25/25 for content mark for the cultural essays? My teachers will one day give me like 21/25 and another day 15 but the essay will be pretty much the same! They never seem to be able to answer when I ask what they want for full content

    I have no idea I know that with plays the more quotes the more content marks but I don't know how it works with anything else. I'm doing a film and I think it depends on how many examples you include?
