      My teacher said start with the Personal Writing because your creativity will be flowing and you'll be more energetic as opposed to the end of the exam when you'll be more sluggish and tired. But what ever you do don't go over the hour for personal writing or you won't have time for anything else. This is what I'm going to do as its the question worth the most marks!
