    the guy worked in a factory and the other guy loved his job and enjoyed receiving presents i think
    no, he enjoyed seeing the faces of kids when he gives them small gifts. therefore i think it should be he enjoyed working with children.

    there was a riot that broke out at my school, everyone found it that hard a riot went down and the teachers were ambushed...:l

    The steak was too bloody
    the curry was too cold
    the tart - not enough sugar/too bitter
    and the dessert was too much cream?

    He worked in a factory? I also put he keeps it clean - as I heard that it was the HOTEL they send it too to make sure they get a good night sleep/calm

    Um... in terms of the camping, I heard something along the line of going with school? and that they can not sleep/too noisy last time
    And for him, he's disappointed because he planned to take a walk but didn't get a chance

    In terms of the thing with the girlfriend (pretty sure I completely screwed it up)
    I said she said she doesn't want to see him anymore/spends too much time working and not enough with her
    and this lead to him being regretful and want to learn from his mistake?!!!!!

    But calm down people!!! sometimes the raw mark can be SO low yet the UMS is still full mark, and I think a realistic grade boundary would be around 31?

    that is really interesting. i dont think we got such a list. could u maybe share that with us? might be helpful.
    it's too long to put up. there must be about 400 words on it!! the board sent it out but didn't bother to translate it. It might be up on kerboodle, but i don't know

    I got that the steak was bloody ('saignant'), the guy worked in a factory since he tested the beds which were then sold to shops and hotels, didn't have a clue for the girlfriend question - I put something about him being alone I think? And for the Mali question I think I put the government thing and the solar energy was the only way one. Not sure if they're right but I hope so :P supposed to be getting an A*

    P/N? - positive because he's talented at it, but negative as he's jealous of his friend who have more time

    the curry was spicy, but that was not the negative point. it was that it was cold. i think u r right about the tart. for the steak, some people said it was burnt. i said it was too rare. for the bed one i put furniture shop. the last question, i got no idea :P
    Yeah I said that the curry was cold because I heard 'froid' and also I said factory because he was making and testing out the beds.

    my teacher said that the steak was too rare. futhermore the correct answer was furniture shop not factory and i know that for a fact.
    it was factory, our french teacher (who is french herself) had the transcript and went through the answers and it was a factory as he said "enterprise" which gave it away

    We went to our teacher after the exam and she said it is one of the hardest ones she has come across. I think it was hard although some of the questions were alright, but the girlfriend and the food one :confused:
