    Hang on didn't it say votre opinion on whether its positive ou negative? I picked a side and only wrote about negative because I thought it was asking for your personal opinion on whether its a good or bad influence
    I thought it asked for the positive and negative influences of it but I can't remember 100%

    I don't really know how I feel!! I was so happy with the essay titles (I did smoking), my biggest concern is with the readings 😩 Usually reading is my strongest in an exam but I felt it was too hard! The application q, the synonyms (I got like 3 by the looks) and the series q I got lots of vrais! I'm praying the grade boundaries are low

    I think I said it. But thinking about it again, in 2014, one hard section caused the grade boundaries to drop to 85. There were several here so I'm thinking anywhere between (80-83), although nothing less than that.

    Thinking I got a B overall. Damn, wanted an A
    I'm sure you did better than you thought, I think speaking also is integrated in your final grade so you could get pushed up if that is an A as well. Don't lose hope, I know I am doubting the A grade just like quiet a lot of solid A grade students in my class. This is making it more likely that the grade boundaries could be low this year.

    I was literally sat there like "shoot, what if I'm the only one finding this hard!'

    I guess I also have A2 to make up for it as well even if I do get a B. Thank you for the encouragement, made me feel a LOT better!

    That is right. It didn't want both. I was about to do it but I thought I would repeat myself too much. It definitely asked to choose a side

    I found the True/False questions weird. Everything didn't really make sense to me lol.
    I remember I got a lot of ND.
    What did people get for the question about film vs TV scenarioists something to do with earning more money?
    And the American adaptation series thing confused me too. I was wasn't sure which way round it was and whether it was F or ND.
    Also, in the listening, the mannequin girl last question.
    I put she dropped out of school and her parents and teachers were surprised? Did anyone else get this?

    Did your schools had a lot resitting because mine had quite a few and that'll bring up the grade boundaries
    Trust me the resitters wont bring up the grade boundary's. Found this harder than when i sat it in 2015. Such a hard paper. Everyone else in my class found it hard too.

    I got F (for TV scriptwriters because I thought it said they don't work for films anymore because of a lack of salary) and V (I think for the American show)

    I did the music essay and I believe it said "in your opinion, does music have a positive or negative influence?"
    I wrote about both positives and negatives - will I get penalised for this!? I'm really worried now!
