Yessss I'm here! You're not alone lmaooo. Genuinely feels like I'm the only one. I found them quite good but it's my first time ever writing any of the essays in timed conditions (I'm an independent candidate-been teaching myself) so what would I know 😅 Didn't really finish any of the questions fully but gave it my best. Do you reckon grade boundaries will be a lot lower now that NEA is out of the question (I was literally relying on mine to bump my grade up, even finished it and did well thankfullyy only to find out it wasn't going to be counted 🤦*♀️)??

I'm so happy someone replied, I am the only one in my exam hall at school for history lmaooo. Oh god I hope soo, I was so so so annoyed that the NEA didn't count because I was relying on it too ahahahah. Thing is I did run out of time quite badly in my Lenin-Yeltsin question, especially the interpretation question (was very rushed). I am pretty happy with Mao's China though what exam are you sitting on Friday? Also if you need to talk to someone about like essay technique or anything for friday just message me on insta: alexghiorghita, I would try my best, I'm aiming for an A hehe
