    the first questions of the listening were easy, but the one about the nordic walking completely put me off, as well as the one about the sisters!

    Did anyone else find listening worse than reading or was that just me?

    I loved the reading and listening papers! I didn't actually find them that hard, I don't think. (I'm a higher candidate)

    For me on the reading exam, questions 3, 4, 5 and 6 were easier than question 1...

    Overall, though, I thought the papers were good; although all the other candidates who took the exam in my school found it harder than ever this year (even the straight A* students).

    yeh IGCSE. The listening was hard but the reading and writing was not too bad. The speaker in the listening just wouldn't stop talking so it took time for me to process. I think it was harder than the past papers I did though. u?

    what do u think the grade boundaries will be? I expect it will be around the same as last year or maybe slightly lower. Last year an A* was 83%.

    I thought that the listening paper was easier than the reading.. although, I quite liked that the reading was mainly made up of multiple choice questions and then some statement ones at the end (question 8 - which I found really difficult) I hope I either got an A or a B overall

    Yeah the reading was way easier than the listening. I did the 2015 ones the night before and they both were way easier than this year's. I really hope the grade boundaries are low...

    A = 69/100
    B = 59/100
    C = 50/100
