Higher

Listening was good
Reading- section B AHHHH WTH
Translation was great but the mistake I wrote was that the uncle lived in the suburbs in the capital city (GroßStadt is not capital city but a major city)

I'll be the star of the next paper extract of homelessness. I'll be more pessimistic than that dude complaining about weather and his dog.

seems like you know your vocab.
I digress though, that paper was a mess - especially that teenager extract?!
Also that translation was WAAAAAAY harder, you really ought to know your vocab. Guess what I put for "Mittelmeer" - yeah that's right, "MIDDLE-SEA" -_-

It was ok - I liked the listening but the reading was a bit difficult. But hopefully there will be lower grade boundaries!

It is technically the middle sea, as originally they believed the world was flat and the Mediterranean was in the exact center of the world.

What did anyone think of the May 1st extract? Why was there the problem of nicking the maypole mentioned? No one would be able to just take a 30ft (10 meter) wooden pole out of the ground and take it home with them.

This was actually the worst part of the paper in my opinion and the bit which I struggled with the most.

Yeah, but the important thing is that they won't give me the mark.

If the examiner is in the right mood then you will get it. They will know what you mean so you could get it for technical accuracy

Okay so I remember the hard parts, let's discuss.
For the may festival thing, what did they say?
Like, I said they literally took a Dobnes tree or whatever it was called and hanged it on a window or something?
I said that they put a crown or something on the top of it.
Oh my God, it really was dumb, wasn't it?
For the teens I said: the parents have to be sensible with them
Okay, looks like I remember less than I thought - comment and I'll discuss with y'all what I got.

What did people get for the last question in listening about health and I think chemists. I was fine with it until that point
