    Spot on.
    Although, tbh, I did think 3000km may have been a slight exaggeration on the SQA's part. I don't think it's that far away.
    I was doubting that too. I wrote it down in the ends.

    I was thinking that the Caribbean (where Martinque is) is just below the US. I am no geography expert but the SQA can't bull**** us that much.

    You are kidding me I had 4 and changed it to 14 hour, how can a plane take 4 hours to get to the Caribbean? Also I had 3000km but changed it to 2000km (don't ask omg)

    Same here, French was my last exam and I feel so relived. I have no more real commitments. I could probably just die now and no one would mind XD.

    I might just spend my time doing some reading and preparation...I have nothing better to do and I don't want my brain to turn to complete mush! What do you plan on doing?

    Indeed it is. I was even thinking about writing a wee note to the examiner about it. Poor show SQA.

    Actually I have just googled it. Martinique to the USA is 4240.17km! I think the SQA were being kind by using a simple figure hehe .

    And this was your last exam right?! NOW WE CAN PARTY :woo:!

    It is encouraging that you did that for the short essay. I thought that it meant that too since how can you know what people can do where you want to go? I am not sure if it is wrong or right- did you ask your teacher by any chance?

    I spent around 35 mins on DW, mainly looking through my dictionary for words. Did you translate sports competitions as "la competition sportives"?
    I am pretty sure what we did was fine

    Yeah, I translated it as "une competition sportive"
    You'll be fine!

    I found it to be a good paper. The reading and listening were straightforward and I think I could score highly on that. The directed writing was alright once I got into it. I just rambled on about "un tournoi sportif". The short essay was also straightforward, but holidays is just such a dull topic to write about. I interpreted the question a bit differently as I didn't actually talk about my hometown, but rather Scotland as a whole. Nevertheless, I hope the SQA marks leniently. NO MORE EXAMS!!!
    I talked about Scotland as a whole too

    No idea i got 3000km from usa, could also have said it was an isle of France, in the Caribbean.

    Can you remember any other answers?

    I don't think an island in the Caribbean would get the mark as that was mentioned at the beginning of the paper

    Not sure what I put for the second point you made- I know I expressed it badly in the exam.

    But for the game part, I put something along the lines that the family find themselves around a board game. I noticed there was a reflexive thingy so that helped me.
