I'm dropping to OL last minute, would appreciate any pointers anyone can give me, such as predictions your teachers have made for pros and poetry, any useful phrases for the composing sections, etc.
For the Sceal if you're given this sentence for example 'D'feach me ar m'fhon poca, leigh me an teacs o mo chara, nior chreid me mo shuile...' that has to be the very first line of your story! you could then go on and say nios luaithe an la sin.
