    Thank you Would that mean there's a chance of it balancing out a bit / getting a C if I have completely messed up?
    Hopefully how did you find the exam overall?

    How much did everyone else write for their essays? Reading that people wrote 4 sides is worrying me - I wrote, and have written for all my essays, about 2, or a bit less. Is this too little?
    I wrote 2 sides as well and I've got good grades for essays writing that much. I think it's quality that's most important rather than quantity

    I'm not really sure... I thought the listening went quite well, it's just a couple of the reading parts and that question 9 that shook me... Am thinking that there're probably a lot more silly mistakes I made in it....

    For the essay question I managed about 4 sides, but didn't really have time to look over it so it might have been quite repetitive. I think I might have messed up a few of the tenses in there too

    I've got a History exam tomorrow too... None of my exams this year seem to have gone to plan though

    I only wrote 3 pages here which for me made time an issue for the other sections, but usually i write 2 and half and ive gotten 30/35 for that so hopefully all is good, a long as you're points are relevant, to the qn, well expressed, range of structures and a few eye catching vocab words then you should be fine

    I'm sure you have done better than you think I wrote 2 pages for the essay but I have quite small writing, so I hope I've done ok. Good luck for your History exam tomorrow

    I thought the uniform was a bit deceptive

    I can remember the bottom one on the first page being P/N and I think the top one of the second page was N. The one I was confused about was the one where he started complaining about le systeme actuel but didn't really mention uniform- I put P because he didn't like the current non uniform so he must think that uniform is good?

    Does anyone have an unofficial mark scheme? It would help a lot
    I found the listening question in which you had to write in french quite difficult, also the grammar question was pretty difficult compared to the previous years!

    Ahh, are these definitely right? I think I put reconnu
    I've heard the others were 'positif --> positive' and I think another one was 'pouvoir'? I put pourraient for the latter but not sure if it's right? *It was a future question*
    Also, does anyone know the context that positif was in? (The sentence surrounding it? Still can't remember what I put for it, but guessing if there was an obvious -e ending I'd have put positive...)

    Hopefully! Some of the answers coming up here seem to remind me of things I might have put, so maybe I did a bit better :') And I'm sure that's fine - mine seemed a bit rambling on, and I put a line space in between paragraphs so that spaced it out a little too ^_^ Thanks!

    You do realise that if it ends in AL then in the plural it changes to AUX? So the correct answer was Monoparentaux
    I thought it was feminine plural?
