Hey did anyone have any major horror stories. Already I've heard people answer one question from each option and others planned for a three hour exam!

No problems here, though I remember in the Trials, some of my class looked at the options part of the paper and said "Oh crap! We have to write FOUR essays?!"

it was funny, i had studied methodologies for CAFS but there wasn't too much about them in the test. so when i saw those first two questions, i was like "beauty!"

another "horror" story... we were waiting outside the room, and our teacher had visited us, to see how we were going... it was getting later and later... at 1:50 we started to get worried, then the supervisor came outside and said "what are you doing? we've got five minutes before we're supposed to start!!" so we all had to quickly run inside, find our seats, go through the paper and all that stuff they read out. we had a minute to spare so she let us write on our booklets :)

well, ok, not really scary, but it was at the time!! :p

My changing of topics

Well... my class was doing popular culture and in my 11 day break before s&c exam i studied up for belief systems.... and my class were doing the 'vatican city' and i studied another country instead.... Bernie howitt visited us and said we'd probably be disadvantaged doing vatican city anwyay so yah. Point is i didnt know much about vatican city and bloody popular culture so studyng soemthnig else would have almost been the same as studying those stupid boring topics from scratch.
