Hi hamzamughees, nice to see you too. My english teacher was saying the same sort of thing but i just found it hard to believe that we are expected to write that much in the span of 3 hours and 20 minutes. it just doesnt seem realistic. But thank you anyway.

Quality > quantity keep that in mind also. 3 pages of quality beats 5 pages of pure shite.

Ok thanks michaels for that, i have known hamza since the junior cert and he has been very helpful. I would just advise that if you want to get along with people, that you dont say things like "dont listen to hamza he has no idea what hes talking about" and instead just give your opinion but thanks anyway for your advice.
