Qui cuisinait aujourd’hui?

Well that's au revoir to GCSE French, but how did today's writing exam go?

There were sections on free time and holidays, just in case people needed any more help getting into half-term mode. And, at the end of it, a big line drawn underneath two years of studying la langue française.

Scroll down for some of the best internet reactions to today's French exam (spoiler alert: there are a lot of people celebrating no more GCSE French). And check the links for discussion on each of the AQA and Edexcel papers.

Exam discussion on The Student Room

Studying French is hard enough, and it's even worse when everyone else is already on half-term

Even the examiners' questions were about holidays

Still, the exam went pretty well...probably?

And then...c'est fini

What people are saying about GCSE French Writing on The Student Room

Those were some great questions! Couldn't have asked for anything nicer than what you do in your free time for 90 words, and holidays for 150.


How did everyone find the translation? I thought it was quite good


Loved that paper :biggrin:
I did 1.1 and 2.1, free time and holidays? Couldn't have been better
