How is that difficult? You have 3 hours and 3 different tasks all worth the same.

3x 1 hr exam


5 min read
5 - plan
45 min write. [5 min intro 5 min conclusion 40 min main essay.

Your practice exams should have trained you for the timings.

Do not break the schedule and any excess time left use at the end for checking.

I’ve got the same as you and I’m doing the same texts as well! So an hour on each section. Like the other poster said, 5 minutes read, 5 minutes plan and the rest for writing the essay.

How are you feeling about it? I had psychology paper 1 yesterday and we had three essay questions and my god my poor hand lol. Can’t imagine how it’s going to feel for this one or the other one 😂
