    Not 100% but I think the first person avoided the salty foods, was a very hard paper

    I can mostly only remember the words not the letters or order, but I said the busses were smaller, silent, good for accessing places that other vehicles can't. I think I got the same as you for the last two answers and probably some or all of the others.
    OMG I wrote the opposite to what u wrote. I said they were big and loud 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 😩😩😩😩😩😩😩 the reading paper was sooooooooo hard

    Oh, certainly. They will definitely pull the grade boundaries lower.

    The grade boundaries reflect on the performances of everyone nationally. So if everyone did terrible, the grade boundaries will be lowered (and vice versa).

    I hope that everyone does terrible so we can get lower grade boundaries!

    This was also harder than June 2015 in my opinion.

    Yeah, the green buses article was quite challenging, as well as the packaged holidays like you said. Also, am I the only one that found the Engineering question on the Listening paper challenging? I answered all of the questions but I don't necessarily know if I'm right...
    What was the question about Green buses? Worried I've missed a question out and didn't see it as I don't remember that at all (did the Higher Paper too). But did forget most of the questions after so probably did it..

    It was the last question, I think. It was just a long article about new buses that would be more environmentally friendly and it explained its effect in the city.
    The questions were tickboxes. It was an 8 marker.

    Oh my god I don't remember that, but I remember doing the Reading Paper in a weird order and went to the back to do the last one at one point in the middle of the time, I honestly don't know if I did it or not super worried now :'(

    Here are some keywords that might make you remember it:

    - tranquilidad, ruidamente, ventajas, motor, vehicles, reducida, etc, cuidad, centra, urban, comercial, etc....

    On the all-inclusive holiday question (I don't know if this is right) I put about how the people might be surprised to discover that they weigh more at the end of their holiday.... and then I read that this was because they eat more than normal as it is 'all inclusive' so they will lose control...

    Did anyone else get this??

    I got that they'll be surprised because they'll get a bill when they're going home and that's because they'll have heavier suitcases because they bought more things. In that sentence the main things I understood were the word 'cuenta', something about going home and something to do with weight (can't remember what it was).

    I really don't know though, I found that question the hardest, especially where it asked for two details and even though I understood most of the section it was asking about I could only pick out one specific detail.

    I got this!!
    I said they have gained weight, as they eat more than necessary as they cannot control themselves

    I did the higher but my teacher said the paper was relatively straight forward so you can probably only drop 2/3 marks for a C

    My teacher did the exam and said the first two were B and the last was C but I can't remember the others

    In the Higher Listening, there was a question about air conditioners, internet access or TV satellites. Anyone put air conditioners as I heard 'calor' which means hot.
