Paper 1 is Moral and Epistemology.
Paper 2 is Metaphysics of the mind and Metaphysics of God.
I have this horrible feeling that innatism might come up on paper 1 this year

If it does, I'd just discuss the Slave Boy argument and Locke/Leibniz's back-and-forth debate about the existence of innate concepts. It's not on the spec, but you could also invoke Peter Carruther's argument based on cognitive developments, too.

How did everyone find paper 1? I did really badly on the moral 25 marker.
Any predictions for paper 2 questions?
