    i think the word limit thing is the most annoying! i find it so hard to stick to it especially in the AS reading resit i did the other week, they only let you write a max of 160 words and they expect you to include so much stuff in it

    type in ur centre number there, and, if your school is registered, you should be able to get loads of Unit 6 french papers.
    One bit of advice then if you havnt written a timed french essay before is make sure you know what 250 words looks like in your handwriting, cos i think they are really strict at going over or under the limit.

    ye I mean an intro, paragraph of of arguments for whatever, paragraph of arguments against whatever, then conclusion. That's about 4 or 5 lines for each paragraph!!!

    Are these easy, I haven't done one but on one hand it sounds quite easy but on the other I don't see how you can use much good French in 250 words.

    nope, not really, which makes it hard to cram in as much grammer and stuff as u can to get the marks

    What should I concentrate on more, I know I can't make up a load of crap for my answer but will my actual French be more important?
