    I think it was something along the lines of 'you can save energy by turning off the light when you leave a room', or something to that effect...

    I put 'en éteignant' as I thought it should be in the present participle
    Did they give us the verb? (doubt they did!)
    Everyone seemed to know the verb (including everyone in my class) but I had no idea!? I said something along the lines of 'de-allumer'...oops!

    How will you scale the exam?

    1 couldn't have been easier
    2 nothing whatsoever was challenging
    3 easy paper
    4 easy paper whilst still making us think
    5 normal standard paper
    6 normal standard paper, whilst making us think
    7 hard paper
    8 very hard
    9 extremely difficulty
    10 couldn't have been harder
    I'd probably give it an 8! My teacher even said she thought it was really hard, and she just had a quick glance at it...especially the "copper" thing. I think the only thing that makes it not 9/10 is the really nice influences question (even though the themes/techniques part of it was weird...)

    do you remember what the words before/after racines were? i put that too but considered arbres, i can't remember if the adjectives around it were masculine or feminine

    It said Elles after and Racine is feminine so

    did anybody do question 13b for the essay?
    I got CCCBDD for the first page but pretty sure that at least 1 isn't right
    then for the second page i got that it was discrimination at work/about work and that it had been settled in court or something about justice, then i got that she was pregnant and she wanted to move and then for the third i got that it was online but i forgot about the 2nd point
    what did people get for the things that were true with the family that had come from China to Belgium???
    I remember getting CCC for the first 3 questions on 1, so I've got the same as you there. Can't remember what I put for the other parts of question 1.
    Also got the same as you for the crime one.
    And for one of the questions I got B D E K M R.
    The gap fill question was horrific though, don't think I got a single one!

    1 - agree
    2 - the neighbours welcomed them
    3 - agree
    4 - parents didnt always send their kids to school?
    5 - not far from town hall
    6 - similar to the social something (not the 65000 option)
    I put the same for q4 because I heard something to do with children between 6-10 being sent to school for the whole of the school calendar

    Yes I put that too, I think it was B on the list of options because it did mention 'comprendre' but I think it was referring to the french parents wanting the foreign parents to understand that they can't send their children to school only when they want

    Yay, that was my logic behind it too! Although I was initally torn between B and C, but settled for B

    but didn't it say 'sending all of their kids' or something? I thought it never explicitly said that they weren't sending their kids though it was implied but it said the mayor or whoever was insisting so that they understand...

    For musician/painter/director one of them was "Analysez les principales influences de votre musicien/metteur en scene/peintre. A votre avis, est-ce que ces influences sont plus fortes sur ses techniques ou ses themes?" I cant remember the other question though as this is the one that I chose, sorry!
