    That sounds good!! I said how his dreams were his main inspiration, he had drawn images he had seen in his dreams etc...didn't know what else to say so I linked the fact that el machismo still exists in our society therefore he wanted to incorporate it into his film, even though it was set in the 1930s, and also about his problem with the Catholic Church when you seen the priest piling food into his plate whilst saying one ration card will be enough etc.

    I made the mistake of looking at the essay q's at the start of the exam which left me in a panic for the entire time cos they were all rubbish.... Why couldn't it just have asked techniques, themes and what I thought of them ffs
    Ah yes!! That dream point is good! Yeah I made the exact same point said about the fact he said he hates organised religion etc is seen through the priest's ration card statement..! But what confused me is in our mock we had a very similar question on influencias!! (2016) are influencias and 'Fuentes de inspiración' same thing pretty much??

    Things I definitely remember:

    I misspelt buceando as buzeando, I know AQA normally accept "one spelling error that doesn't significantly change the meaning" but if they're trying to hammer home the C/Z rule I'm not sure if I'll get the mark?

    I got the word for 'rocket' bc I'd heard it once when I watched a clip from the Mexican dub of The Incredibles and I think I might have been the only person in my school to get the word????

    The plane cabin section I found alright but it did make me laugh bc I'd seen something similar in the news the other day

    Do AQA have a thing for Angelina Jolie cos swear down she's turned up before

    I went for the history essay about líderes that tienen triunfos and desastres, our study area is 1930s Spain so I went for Azaña

    Blanked out most of the rest of it tbh

    Ah angelina question! So I remember one of the people children drowned, and I put they couldn't find the bodies of the others, she felt there wasn't enough attention from the media or something

    I thought they allowed them to get up to go to the toilet, or have I remembered it wrong?

    Actually tbf it would make more sense if they didn't, so it probably linked to the one that said "la tripulacion impedio..."

    What did people think of translations? I thought Spanish to English was quite nice but sentences eng to span not great

    The "memory" one should be right - the text used "desmayarse" (faint) and afaik perder el conocimiento = lose consciousness. For the other one I think it was the answer with the tripulación/crew, might be the one you put but I legitimately do not remember the phrasing for that one
