    For the Senegalese director:

    - the film was about people living with AIDS not just one man.
    - people with AIDS rarely talk about the illness
    - Senegalese cinema has a great future. Africa is a big market (une grande marche) and there are now modern studios to produce good quality films.
    yeah i put all that actually, kind of forgot what i had exactly said when i wrote that, apart from from une grande marche

    I think it was problems/issues that lead young people to drink.
    Les sentiments d'etre seul - the feeling of being alone?

    The feeling of being drunk is not really a cause...it's an effect? I dunnoo...but I know I got the exam failure thing wrong...I put school stress :/
    Ah yeah I think you're right. I put 'in order to get drunk' which is kind of a cause, but I think I just misheard it :P

    Does anyone know what percentage of marks the speaking contributes to the overall AS grade?
    If it's 30% then what do you reckon we'll get? Fletcher said our class all did well but do you reckon we got Bs or As?

    I dunno, I mean I felt the speaking went pretty well so hopefully that can bump the grade up, because i'm suddenly realising how many stupid mistakes I made in todays exam :P

    You've just read my mind, that's exactly what I was thinking. I've screwed up the coffee break one I think, and also didn't do too well on one of the listening sections either and the grammar was... meh, alright I suppose. I just hope Fletcher hasn't gotten our hopes up too much by singing our praises too much, cos no doubt the actual examiners will be harsher markers than him.

    For the one about seeing each other again the statement in the box said 'They never saw each other again' and I put F because I'm sure in the last paragraph it talked about a month after or something and how it's a true love story or something like that.
    didn't it say that at the end he came back to her and now they're going out?

    Why does everyone think it was she was 12 years old. I thought it said 'Elle n'aurait pas douze ans' meaning literally 'She had not 12 years' as in 'She wasn't 12'? I agree with you for all the other ones though
    no, it said elle n'aurait QUE douze ans, so she was ONLY 12

    Is this where it discussed him taking her hand and him being the only one for her? Either way it would still mean the answer was F

    From what i remember it basically said
    - they spoke during the speed dating, but the time ran out
    - he left
    - at the end he came back and even though other people wanted him it was too late because he was hers
    - Then it has been a month or something and its a love story..... ?

    Yeh that would mean it was F because it said 'They never saw each other again' but the text said it was a love story, in which case they did see each other

    For the Private Life of the Celebrities exercise with the reports what did everyone use? I think my order went Birth, Marriage, Rapture?? (Had no idea and ruled out divorce because it discussed her 'boyfriend'), Argument and something else?

    For the one about private lives

    It was
    Rupture - it said they couldnt live together
    Birth
    Marriage (les noces)
    Argument
    And a new relationship

    i did the tv essay

    technology has revolutionised our lives so people watch tv online rather than in the tranditional sense
    faster online and less advertising so more people watch online
    in the future most people will watch tv online
    older people continue to watch tv since they can't use technology
    tv is still popular among youths since it's a great way to relax
    people work more today, less time for tv
    tv's will become bigger in the future since it enhances the effect etc
    got in a couple of subjunctives, rather pleased although some stupid mistakes on the listening

    It went 'Marriage, Birth, Break-up, Argument, New Love' which would of been C, A, E, D, F I think. Could be wrong but those were definitely the order they went in, I just can't remember the letters that went with them.
    The first one was not marriage was it? I understood it as a couple who were going to get married but broke up

    Fairly happy with the essay, thought the listening and reading weren't too bad - AQA still managed to get some trick questions in. Know I've made some silly mistakes, but it's incredibily difficult not to with only two hours to do the whole thing. Was anyone else pushing for time?
