What aspect of a film should you discuss in general viewpoint? I know it depends on the question but I mean to support as sort of quotes. And I 8767 m referring to only general vision and viewpoint. Apart from the endings and the start.
Hi Evelyn i was just wondering how much you should write for a comparative Q. or the entire P7 for ordinary level, I had a look on one of your guide (how much to write?] but didn 8767 t know was it for HIGHER LEVEL or Ordinary or for both.
