I don't know why they just didn't give us an 8-pager for both Speer and Germany..... even the ppl who left after 1.5 hours filled those 4 page booklets.

And the rest of us had to wait for the BOS ladies to run (haha) and get those other 4 pagers to us.

I had 5 booklets for my National Studies section alone :argue:

exactly, I was confused when I saw those 4 pager books, I thought I was missing an 8 page one for the Germany question cos I assumed there were 2 4-pagers for the 2 speer questions. Not very well thought out I must say!

They just gave us 4 page booklets then fucked us round in the middle of the exam trying to explain why they were going to give them to us then.

I never used an 8-page one, I just used alot of 4 page booklets.

Yeah it was stupid. No way could you write Germany and Speer in just a 4 page booklet. Such a waste of time as well.

we just had three 8 page booklets on the table at the beginning..

i think pretty much everyone ended up with about 5 or 6 by the end though

they never give enough booklets in any exam, except maths..

Yeah, we got four-page booklets as well; two for the National Studies section, which was by no means enough. I ended up needing an extra booklet for the essay and the Speer questions, although I was the only one out of my class (of 11) to need them. The supervisors appeared to be quite surprised.

On another note... have you guys noticed that the 8 page booklets have nice smooth pages and the pages are kinda more yellowish, while the 4 page books have this rough paper that is harder to write on, but they have whiter pages... might just be the books we have at our school, I dunno lol.

Everyone in my skool who did Modern History were also confused as to why we onli got 2- 4 page booklets and one- 8 page booklet....Everyone was like discussing how we were gonna do the essays....we even got into a little debate with the BOS supervisors...telling them that we had 4 different essays to do...and we all asked for more booklets at the beginning, thinking that they forgot to give us an extra booklet...but they just said they were confused to and that they were just following the BOS instructions....

If u ask me...i thought that it was a waste of 4 page booklets...they should have just given us 8 page booklets....they could have used the 4 pages booklet in other exams or sumfing.....
