Module A and B fitted my prepared essay perfectly. Module C (Raw) i had to modify a fair bit because of the society element, other than than i pushed 30 pages so im pretty happy.

I agree! I thought that paper was much better than Friday's and I found it easy to maintain my time on each section. Trying not to get too over-confident though, I hope I did as well as I feel I did.

yer i agree with everyone except aaron. it wasn't a bad paper compared to 2004 and 2005 papers. you would have expected this sort of paper after receving a hard inner journeys paper. they have to maintain some form of balance and have one hard one and one easy one. there were no feature articles, speeches or anythin like that so it was alright. the last question wasn't the best but hey on the whole it was good

i was amazed at how easy that was. 3 perfect "write down everything you know using your prepared essay making sure to change the intro and a few words everynow and then" type questions.

and only needing 1 related text for institutions...omg, life saver. i dont know how its possible to go into detail on 3 texts in 40 minutes without having the perfect prepared essay that you memorised off by heart....and also have super human writing speeds.

after feeling a little let down by paper1 and fearing that band 5 had slipped away, paper 2 really got me motivated again and my goals still seem like a possibility.

Well I ran out of time :(
And I didn't think the essays were easy, they were hard compared to previous years in my opinion.
Plus they seemed to focus on just one aspect of what I was prepared to write about. Lame >.<

I think I'm the only one that shows up at exams without prepared essays (which explains my err, rather un-impressive marks)... however, I think for all those who studied, that would have been the easiest paper in the past few years ^^; I only studied for 10 minutes before going to school! God bless me and give me a high band 4 please!

I had a look at the Advanced paper though, and damn, they sure got screwed over!
