    Hey! I'm retaking this paper as need to get an A! I'm really hoping it's advertising, as that hasn't come up for a while. Could be music, internet, sport, friendships (although I'm praying it won't be). Good luck! x

    I thought parts of the listening and reading were tricky, like the fast food article. The writing I was pleased with as I really wanted advertising. What about you?

    Completely agree.
    To help another user as well

    Dad question was first. Thought that was okay.
    Then, online shopping thought that was hard. The man didn't say much.
    Then it was those magazine articles. Pretty easy.
    Then finally Togo. Not toooo bad

    Reading. Fast food. Hard, stats were quite ambiguous. Is it bad I didn't tick an A box? :P
    Then it was that internet one? Quite hard again?
    Then music one - again I thought some of the points overlapped. Fanny said quite a lot !
    Then that one about the woman who caught her man cheating. - seemed okay
    Finally cloze texts. Enough said

    Anyone have any answers?
    Or thoughts on grade boundaries?

    Good luck everyone

    On the first question for the father thing, I put about being about present at the birth, something else, and then the 3rd point I couldn't make out. Something about paternity and 11 days? In hindsight I'm thinking paternity leave...

    Yeah that's what I got - at the birth, no longer the head disciplinary figure of the household and 11 days paid holiday. Which is what les conges are..
    I know I got the one about divorce rate wrong - I said it doesn't stop changing instead of it goes up
    Anddd. Can you remember what you put PACS?
    On my first line I said - you can ignore them any longer
    2nd line - great sucess, despite catholic church doesn't agree/banned them
    Wondering if that's right? Because that 3 points. Can you have 2 points on one line, do you think?

    I put great success on one line and then the catholic church is against them on the other. don't think you'll lose marks.

    erm, if it's not too much trouble could you just post up all the answers?

    thanks for these btw. What was the sentence for the 'peut/pourrait' and 'verra' phrase?

    And i'm sure the first one is arrivée as it agrees with 'une activité'? I asked my teacher this aswell and he's a french native

    Fair enough, but I think I'll stick by my teacher. He said
    'le paintball est une activité qui est soumise a des regles..." et non pas soumis!'

    How are those answers coming along?
