    I did my oral yesterday and I revised and practiced so much! French is my favourite subject and for the last two months I've only really focused on the oral. I was really confident when practising but when I sat it I was naturally nervous. I feel like I've done really awful! I really want a B but feel like I maybe just scraped a low C maybe even fall into a D! My stimulus card was ok, I could answer all the question and my delivery was a normal pace. Then my chosen topic ok I suppose, though I realise that I've made a few simple grammar mistakes. Then onto the random questions... I ended up stumbling on my words, I had good ideas and could develop most of my answers but I feel like the examiner didn't let me take the lead, although I did ask her a question. I normally have a really convincing french delivery but for this exam I think I sounded the most 'english' I possibly could! After my examiner said that I garbled my way through it so I know that my accent was rubbish! But she also said the practice paid off.

    I'm never usually this hard on myself but French was the subject where I really worked hard on and I've defiantly let myself down. I know I still have the other exam but I'm just so disappointed because it could have gone soooooo much better!
