    I did my IGCSE French oral exam today.
    I did bad.
    I did reaaaaally bad.

    So I went into the room feeling pretty somewhat confident, and when it started, my mind instantly went blank. I couldn't think, and I basically panicked.
    The look on the teacher's face instantly told me that I failed, and she even suggested that I could possibly retake the exam next year.

    Anybody else done their oral exams and the result was similar to this? Share your stories if you want.

    Yes, my french IGCSE oral pretty much went horrible too. I experienced a blank too with verses and tenses, was constantly repeating myself, spoke in spanish by accident and answered one question completely wrong. I said how I was for a uniform and explaining why and then when she asked me if I would wear one I said no and she looked shocked. I thought she asked my if I had ever worn a uniform before so yeah. I LEGIT WENT HOME AND CRIED THE WHOLE DAY. I got an A in my mocks and now having completed the writing i'm scared that i may not even pass

    Aw man that really sucks
    I went home and cried after my oral exam too, but hopefully I can redeem myself by doing okay on the listening, reading and writing exam next Tuesday. I hope your results aren't too bad, but I know how you feel! x

    I had mine today and know exactly how you feel, I knew my speaking was going to be my worse but I'm kind of devastated, I'll need to do better on my speaking, listening and writing I guess.
