    Looking through the replies to this thread, I read that a lot of year 10's have only done 2-3 exams this year, whereas I have done 13! Way too much for a year 10 to handle!

    The listening exam for French was so hard-I'm pretty sure I got 0/8 for the questions that required written answers and I'll just have to hope that my multiple choice answers were great and I keep thinking "they'll never give you an A/A* for multiple choice answers".

    Although, the written questions were so tough the grade boundaries will have to go down and not only were they tough questions but the invigilators had major trouble with the tape that was so hard to here with a crackly noise on it but the problem was miraculously fixed by lowering the volume of the tape.

    I keep thinking that I think I've got an A* in French overall because the reading was very easy, which means i should be able to afford a less than perfect score on the Listening but I know I made some silly mistakes like on the first question where I didn't realise that it was written from a French perspective so English is a foreign language

    Oh gosh, I nearly did that English foreign language thing but I caught it as I went back over.

    I know that I haven't performed to my best with the controlled assessments due to a problem with a teacher :/

    I know in a few mocks where I just completely left out the back page I managed to get high A's so you'll probably be alright!

    My invigilator couldn't work the computer and the tape froze halfway through... we didn't notice for ages though, we thought it was just the kids being so loud we couldn't hear. The worst part was that the invigilator couldn't leave to tell them to quieten down because there was only one of them so we would have all been disqualified!

    Do you know if the boundaries are still determined by what everybody else in the country achieved? x

    13? How? The maximum I've known anyone to do is 8 - all modules though, not full GCSEs.

    Hey,

    Relax... take a deep breath and listen to some music...
    We still have a week left. I know I am as scared as you but worrying won't help unfortunately. Take it easy. Just take a deep breath and relax.

    Grade Boundaries will be decided by the exam boards by looking at what mark shows the same performance as previous years for a particular grade, the exam board will also look for large groups of people on one particular mark or a couple of marks, which are key signs of where a grade boundary should go.However, the media would have us believe that in recent years Ofqual have been forcing AQA and all the other exam boards to fix results to certain percentages or in some cases deliberately upping grade boundaries and we can't be sure whether these accusations are true or false.

    When I was doing my year 6 sats, my sister was doing year 9 sats and my brother was doing his A2's.Now that I'm doing my GCSE's my brother has finished his degree bar QTS and has been in the students union for a year and is one his second year, at the end of this year he will complete his last QTS placement and my sister has finished the first year of her degree course.

    My parents still care about my results even though I'm the youngest though so I think I'm luckier than you and do your parents have them silly periods when they say you are going to get U's in everything even though thats not even mathematically possible.They are only joking but it shows they care.
    My parents still care lol, it's just not considered as important as the A levels so they usually ask afterwards and they don't worry as much about my results...do your siblings live at home? Plus, i'm actually in year 10 but I've finished 4 gcses, but when I'm in year 11, my other brother will be doing A2..um, they don't say the U stuff, do yours? and they do care but they tend to put my brothers first- which is reasonable seeing as GCSE's are jack in comparison to a levels.. And I found the writing part of the French speaking really hard too, I can't remember what it was on now... But I remember the reading being a lot easier. And what you said much earlier about the a* baccalaureate... The baccalaureate was scraped,wasn't it? It doesn't exist anymore..
