I thought the healthy lifestyle essay was a gift, but wasn't sure on the gap filling, and the chief examiner seems to have a twisted sense of humour...januarys exam had a guy taking a siesta in a stable, now a nude woman dressed in carrots..???

Barbaric - 6 mark translation, 3 reading passages and 2 listening tracks - talk about over working the candidates!

I picked healthy living, hoping for at-least 30 on the writing. Please please leniant examiner!
I reckon my translations were good - they made sense, but I had to draw in a few gaps like _____; mainly for Apenas and another word which threw me.

The grammar was easy - took about 15 minutes to do it though >.> the gap fill was.. interesting. I rushed into it and stuck iglesias for the first one, but most people in my year put tradiciones instead

Low boundaries too please lol - I reckon I'll be on for 73/74 out of 98 :|


+ Anybody wanna discuss the answers?
For the gap fill I put something like: No particular order really, just what I remember.
Para,
(llegara) a, then the verb which i forget,
siga?
Dementiéndose (or something like that) WITH THE ACCENT as without would be incorrect

that's all i remember :|

also, on the listening task 2, the last gap I put olvidar, that's all i remember lol

www i put olvidar i think! I thought the listening was okay, which is obviously going against what everyone else thought! but essay was shockingly bad, time went so quick, i just had to rush it. What grades are you guys hoping for? I'd really like a B, but thinking im getting a C or D now ahh weell everyone re-sits the AS!

Listening was ok, and could do the 2nd part without another track (which I didnt listen to, despite thinking as I turned on the player, ooh, 2 tracks, whats this) which was a bit stupid.

I can't remember very much... gap fill I put por for first one, cause thats like "through something" isnt it and it was famous for or something like that...
and olvidar where you mentioned because i remembered that ser can be an infinitive trigger someimes. cause thats like "through something" isnt it and it was famous for or something like that...

Did costumbres essay, thought it went ok as it meant I could basically do a paragraph on what young people value instead haha

so overall, pretty well. Although I agree the whole carrot bullets thing was a bit o_O

Hello,

I sat this too, I thought that the paper was strange compared to the past ones, I thought that some of the translations were difficult though essay and listening was fine. Ok paper on the whole but the odd difficult section. Was shocked at the topic of the third reading piece!
