Where you one ancient society short answer and not the other one AS WELL, and then you had to do the long answer which you didn't know at all?

sort of yea... with sparta and Imperial Rome... but i knew enough to write the essay so i was good for it but it took me ages to decide cos i could have gone either way but i spent the whole reading time looking at those short answers and extended responses tossing up which was the bigger risk.
i ended up doing sparta short answers and Imperial Rome ext response

Lol our supervisers are so dodgy. We were allowed to highlight ours during reading time, and she let me help my friend, who couldnt find which questions were ours. They also give us lollies.

yeah, i had the same thing with hellenistic greece. I was lucky though, because the ramesside qustion in section II fit in with my NK egypt stuff, so i got away with not doing the hellenistic essay at all!

i just hope i don't stuff any of the sections up....

and yeh, 5 mminutes? its plenty of time if you know what your options are and are familiar with the setout of the paper

chees an good luck to u all
