    You know for the traffic: was it to check the traffic conditions for the road and the orange card: no problems with change, less time lost (i.e quicker) ? - listening Q6

    you know aqa are trying too hard to fill the diversity quota when they come up with names like fatoumata
    Every exam board does it. It's really weird, do they actually meet a diversity quota by throwing those names in?

    As soon as I saw the word 'selfie' I nearly screamed.
    Won't be surprised if AQA put something like 'How to clapback' or 'How to dab' or 'How to make a meme' next year. They'll do anything to try and 'appeal' to teenagers smh

    Same here - everyone in my school thought the same that it was really difficult. I have looked at the markschemes for the past two years and an A* in both was 33!
    Do you think grade boundaries will go down and do you know of any unofficial mark schemes for IGCSE?

    The listening was kind of difficult but the reading was pretty okay! I'm confident... I mean, in mocks me and my close friend were the top 2 with high A*s so that helps. What stupid topics though. I mean selfies - seriously??

    they're really lenient in marking for french listening, so don't worry i'm sure you'll have done fine
    (a tip maybe, don't take it as a-level because it ruins your life)

    Thanks for the headsup! I was considering taking French as an A-level but so many people says it's really difficult plus I already struggle with GCSE French :/ but the reading paper wasn't that bad, I'd say it was very easy actually but the listening was more difficult for me. I struggle with listening papers a lot

    Did anyone do AQA iGCSE French listening, I thought I would be OK but it was so hard. I completely made up the entire page on Senegal. No one in my year found it easy and we are all hoping for low boundaries.
