urgh. I hate something like that. During the semester we had in the Portuguese-German economy classes only business letters. In the exams we got an article about the economical development in Africa. Thanks God I heard of that earlier as a colleague had this exam earlier than me. That way I wasn't completely surprised and the text was bearable. We were not very delighted though.
No one was happy about the questions he gave us. I just hope that everyone did so bad that he realizes it is impossible to let everyone fail and lets us all pass.
