    It was definitely not what I expected and I don't think I'll be getting as high of a mark I was aspiring for. And that one about new years! Why are they asking me to justify my solutions all of a sudden ffs?! I swear I think the exam boards are just ****ing with us since we're the last year to do the "old" GCSEs. First I had a whole paper about bees for English Language and now a paper about selfies in French. Great. Just great.
    I agree with you guys so much lmao, that listening exam was an absolute mess, and I literally laughed out loud when selfies came up I mean wtf.

    Edexcel was pretty easy, although I love their attempt to "get down with the kids"; "Teenagers all love video games and staying in their bedrooms hahaha aren't we so funny" -_-

    Was it sand? Thank goodness! I get the listening read out to me so it was alright. Usually I do much better in the reading but it seemed to be harder this year! I swear they used the word "reception" about 4 times! "Accueil" or whatever Did you get 1979 for the year?

    That listening paper though for edexcel was so annoying OMG!! But the reading paper was decent even though i have a feeling I will probably get a b because of that last question... that stupid word demenager or a similar word I can't remember kept on popping up and I had no idea what it meant! So yeah totally guessed the last question but overall it was decent - they could have made it hard for reading but thank The Lord they didn't ! Oh and I wanted to ask on the last question for the higher reading paper did they find the cat in May or April :/ I said May but still not sure

    Yeah it was sand I had to google translate it afterwards, it was stressing me out! Yeah me too, basically everyone i spoke to struggled with the reading, so hopefully if its across the board the grade boundaries will be lower! Did they? haha I didnt even notice, only in the work bit i saw it..oops. I cant remember what I got.. i think it was a mixture between 1979-1969 from the people who i asked. What is your coursework grade like, if you don't mind me asking

    I just guessed since it began with "S" and they were talking about beaches haha! Oh, and what did you get for the highest price of the solar chargers? It said "vingt cent cinquante" and that means twenty hundred and 50! Would that be 250 or 2050 euros?
    My coursework is 34/40 for speaking and 36/40 for writing. You?

    Yeah, it was like a multiple choice questions on selfies, like the advantages and disadvantages or something I can't remember... The responses were like "smiling in selfies is good" and "she takes a selfie with her dog" I was gone by that point f that.

    Haha no idea why the heck i put heat..when its talking about solar charging oops. And it said vingt a cent cinqante so you had to pick either 20 or 150, because it said in the question 'what was the highest you could pay' or something. Thats insane well done! My speaking is 33/40 and my writing is 40/40
