    Please tell me I'm not the only one who finds the French reading paper so difficult!

    No I find it the easiest out of that & listening, I find if you use common sense and read the English question then look for key words you can answer it pretty easily. E.g. 'Why does Sarah DISAGREE with school uniform?' if you had no idea as opposed to leaving it blank you could think of some thing e.g. 'lack of individuality' 'unfashionable' it's not ideal but if you don't know then using common sense is your best bet at gaining some extra marks

    That penultimate comprehension question (just before the long writing task) is fairly tricky, but I seriously struggle with the listening paper! Do you know if we get headphones or if it is just played out loud?

    I'm sure you'll be fine do you have it tuesday?

    AQA? I don't find it too hard, it gets a bit difficult towards the end, but I'm definitely aiming for pretty high marks. I got 100% on a practice past paper, but I usually lose 2 or 3 marks.
    I don't think either the listening or reading is too difficult compared to writing or speaking.
