omg, i was looking for someone who was doing the same exam board as me, I haven't actually seen a lot of people who are sitting it, thank god. Honestly, I think I flopped it lol. The things that I was writing about seemed like 'waffle'. in the question about her though and feelings i said that the removal of the horse was metaphorical to how she felt like something valuable had been taken away from her (LOOL i have failed this). But good vibes only I guess, hoping for the best. How about you?

Paper 2 I think will be easier but I fear the transactional writing especially if there is report writing (eek)

Good luck on Paper 2 anyway!

OMG FINALLY SOMEBODY REPLIED LOOOL. YOUR WAFFLE SOUNDS GOOD WTF MINE IS SO BAD. For the thoughts and feelings I said something about how the writer creates visual imagery as the verb "burst" creates the imagery that she exploded into tears and tactile imagery as the verb "swelling" allowed the reader to feel sensations of panic building up within them (THE WAFFLE KEKEKE) also how the narrator feels with the use of description about sweat and how the writer showed embarrassment and how she's always panicking etc... now that I think about it I think I did bad if there's less people taking the test is the grade boundaries gonna be higher or lower.... IM SO SCARED NOW I KEEP THINKING ABOUT WHAT I COULD'VE WROTE.

Hopefully paper 2 us good im gonna do one more paper then go to sleep. report isn't too bad for me its the reviewww that's terrible

Hopefully we can talk about paper 2 tomorrow

Good luck for tomorrow! Although I’m still not sure, one of them was definitely a article in a magazine about how to survive school and the other one was a speech/ presentation about a hobby that interests you ?¿ my sincere apologies if I’m wrong. Good luck once again!
Was the second one a report or a speech?can u remember wat u roughly wrote.Please could someone reply

Again, I’m not really sure but I am leaning more towards it being a speech(?¿). To be on the safe side practice an answer for both a report and speech. Good luck!
