I had 15 minutes left, and hadn't written anything for related texts. I was only going to do one, but after having done the first, for some reason decided to do my second related text. As a result, I finished my conclusion literally 2 seconds before "PENS DOWN!".

I used one, my teacher always said only do the minimum number of texts required so you have enough time to discuss each text deeply.

I had 2 prepared, but only used 1 as I knew it in more detail. However I was prepared to use 2 if necessary.

I did Frontline. Used 2 related texts, as I thought it gave my argument more depth..

I used two:

"Add Sex & Stir", with a strong link to "The Simpsons" episode "Homer Badman".

"The Siege", with a strong link to a "Media Watch" episode on Christopher Skase.

I used 1. Wouldn't have time to do 2 in depth and I want to do it in-depth.

Dw we won't be disadvantaged because it was stated at least one, just like "at least two" in Journeys.

I used one. Had two prepared, but one (Good Bye, Lenin!) fit the question really well, the other didn't (and is pretty badly written, screw you Michael Veitch, no one likes you).

2 related. One very well analysed and weak connection to hypothesis while the nxt one was strong connection to hypothesis but not well analysed.

This is my exact teachers comment when I wrote 1 in the trials for the question 'at LEAST one':

'If they ask for at least one you MUST have two related texts!'

I used only Schindler's List. I Cannot Forget by Alexander Komel was a fairly last-minute change as the other one I had before wasn't very good. I spent about half the essay on it and the other half on set text The Fiftieth Gate, which was good, because I could go into detail about all the film techniques Spielberg uses and how it shapes meaning (and examiners love detail :)).
