    Same haha! Majority of my class got put in foundation, i was going to be put in higher right from the start which is a good thing i guess haha! Anyways how did you find the papers? I thought listening was pretty hard.. I wasnt sure of most things i crossed and wrote.. Hopefully i get lucky XD but i thought the reading was easyyy!! It was quite straight forward, and most of the vocab came up in the 2014 reading paper which i learnt yesterday so thats good haha!!

    The reading paper was so good it was literally easier than any past paper I've ever done, the listening however was hard but what made it harder was the 3 dumb invigilators talking whilst the recording was playing. This made it harder for me to listen to the recording,ruining any chance I had of getting an a* in French. I just hope i got full marks on the reading to balance it out. What did you write for the writing question on the listening, don't you think it was going a bit fast?

    The first one was about who the activity was for, the second one was to say 2 details about youth spend their time or something along those lines.The third was the surprising fact about television and the last was about what activity the girls did

    14-15
    They dont go out much and they read (i think)
    The televisions are not as popular as Mobiles? Theyre in third place..
    They do stereotypical girly activities, like artistic things (cant remember specifically what i wrote)

    I think the listenings really going to bring my marks down.. No chance of me getting an A* now

    Also do you remember the writing question for the reading? What did you write?

    How is everyone feeling about the GCSE French exams tomorrow?
    I am NOT confident in the listening but hoping for an over all A maybe A*.
    I did Foundation Listening and Higher Reading, found both of them difficult compared to past papers, since when have we learnt about Selfies and Vaping?

    Which month did everyone pick for the penultimate question, cause I knew it wasn't april because they were talking about the past, so I assumed they were currently in may, and then one month later would've been june, but I'm really not sure because nobody else I asked put that?
    Also was I the only one who almost didn't realise there was another question on the last page?

    I found the higher listening incredibly difficult! I basically had to guess everything

    I found the reading to be really nice though, and whilst the last question was a little difficult, it was much more generous than years prior.

    Safe to say though, my chances of an A or A* are down the drain!

    Yeah I remember basically I wrote
    Lydia was the one who cooked
    That she didn't like Brittany or Britain because its constantly raining
    People who are not allowed to surf are those who are under 14 or are not good/dont know how to swim.
    About her father I said he gave her swimming lessons because he's an expert
    I then said she wants to spend less time with her family and be more independent
    I said that she wants to go camping because she can make new friends.

    Hi!
    The foundation reading exam was brilliant! I'm confident with a C and I think I've only dropped 2 marks on the paper. The foundation listening was okay. I took 33 as a prediction for a C grade on the reading and I got 21 on the listening, so hopefully it will balance out a little bit. My French coursework is good. I know I have one B and one C in my CW for sure. The "Mon College" assessment is the one I didn't find out a grade for. The recent speaking exam I got a D, but that's because I let some issues I was having at the time get the better of me and I ended up having a crappy assessment - All is well though. I'd be happy with a C overall for GCSE French. How'd you think you all did?

    I'm sure that you have done well, especially if you're predicted A's. If not, then you have a coursework grade to fall back onto
