    It didn't go as good as I thought it would be, but I think I am going to get a B at least. and for last year it was 116 marks for an A. I think one of the listening questions were wrong.

    Wondered what prep you are gonna do for A2 one..
    listening took me a long long time cuz was worded weirdly in some cases!
    remind me again 116 out of 160 right?

    Kool How long have you lived in UK? & Nono xD I'm doing the OCR Dutch AS tomorrow!
    & I'm originally from West Africa! :lol:
    Ya but you do get 15 minutes extra! The translations will be the other way round for A2, maybe practise doing some Persian to English translations!

    The grade boundary tends to go up every year 135/160 should be just about safe I reckon!

    Hey guys! I am doing my Dutch AS too tomorrow! Dutch is my first language, but i've lived in England for the last few years so am slowly forgetting it..... :/ slightly worried as I haven't had time to revise! Sadly i think the grade boundary will be very high as there's mainly dutch nationals sitting it i reckon (although i'm the only one at my school!). Good luck everyone!!!

    I am not flemmish hahaha.. I am from Holland
    and I can't understand how someone, who doesn't has dutch as his first/second language can do this exam?? I bet some people from Holland can't even answer some questions that came up on the exam.. what did you think about it?

    Now that didn't cross my mind when I wrote that! and IKR! the Dutch papers are so much more demanding than the likes of Spanish & French, etc! I think they design the paper to suit the level of Dutch expats, not learners! :lol: I found it ok, though i'm bricking it 4 the A2 exam next week!!:eek:

    Hey! I want to do the exam next year in January so I've got summer to prepare for it. Do you know where I can find a OCR book to revise from? And how did you revise for it and how did it go (like what were the Questions like...etc)
    Do you think it's worth doing. I'm sorry I'm asking loads of Questions at once
