    I had those answers but in a different order? Bullying when teachers aren't there, feeling secure, bullies not being at the school, lastly occasional theft I think

    It might have just been the order I answered them in though, I wouldn't worry about it

    Sorry, I probably just got confused or answered them in a different order to you - the fact that a lot of people seem to have got the same four means they're probably right, and like you said, I don't think they could've been matched up wrong

    Thanks but i didn't do as well as I hoped in the listening. I made a few mistakes on the costa brava section, the two statements and the radio interviews. I suppose the reading went pretty well though.

    Yeah, I didn't get those interview ones either - I thought they were really hard, and I just didn't know all the words:/ I thought the reading was much easier too.

    Question on a website:

    The job advertisment was misleading.
    You find honest opinions on the website.
    Unknown about how the website was doing.

    Thank you for posting the answers! I've worked out so far that I've got at least 29/38 which hopefully will go up to 31/40 when someone posts the answers to the last two marks.

    By the way, if anyone is wondering, these are the Listening and Reading A* grade boundaries from the last couple of years.

    Listening

    Jan 2013 - 32/40
    June 2012 - 28/40
    Jan 2012 - 25/40
    June 2011 - 26/40

    Reading

    Jan 2013 - 28/45
    June 2012 - 31/45
    Jan 2012 - 27/45
    June 2011 - 32/45

    Personally, I think the A* boundary for this years listening will be around 28.

    Also, just remembered - the best thing worst thing about the holiday in the reading was that she could go with her boyfriend - the worst delay was because of the traffic on the motorway.
    The first part is correct, but the second part mentioned a car accident I'm sure. "circulación" is traffic. The boy

    They could do all sorts on phones; Spelling was getting worse; People were becoming antisocial. Also the ones that thought they weren't necessary were C, D and E I think - again I can't quite remember.
    I guessed the spelling one because I heard "escribir" or a tense-variation of it. Really glad I did that!

    (Original post by joneso007)
    The library was noisy, wasn't it? People chatting or something. Then the Labs were old.
    My (clever) friends are saying that it was:

    Classroom - dirty
    Labs - old
    Library - dark

    because the verb (in a different tense) "hablar" was used to describe the playground, and so he/she went inside to the library but it was too dark.

    I think the grade boundaries will be 33/45 spanish and 32/40 listening.

    Also, in the reading paper, question 9 the council question, the last part I wrote "send materials to third world countries" I didn't mention school, will I get a mark?

    From what I remember, it said "un atasco en la autopista" which is a traffic jam on the motorway

    Surely the grade boundaries won't be any higher than 32, people on here may have found it easy enough but im sure there were many people who struggled.

    Oh good, I knew those ones were the ones I picked, but I didn't get them in that order I think that the bullying happening when teachers aren't there was first, then occasional theft, then feeling secure, and the bullies not being at the school was last.

    Ah, jealous of how good you seem at Spanish - you seem to have got all the answers!
    That' orders not quite what I put, I put bullying while teachers are doing other things, bullies not at school, feeling secure and then occasional theft as the last (Because he said something of his was stolen) Hope that's helpful!

    I'm sure you're right, I couldn't quite remember the order, and I think I answered them in a funny order anyway, sorry to confuse you:/
