    What did people put for the first listening I found it so hard I knew the one about noise but guessed the others D:
    That one was so hard! I didn't put noise because I thought t was too obvious but you're probably right haha! I think I put Fahrpläne and Reiseziele but that's all I can remember!

    I thought the text said that women make up a small proportion of the number of young criminals and migrants also are a proportion of the offenders but not sure though :/

    Okay, there was a question about how the Indian government protects kids from work in that stupid factory and I swear I replayed it about 150 times and still couldn't understand what the answer would be. I swear the reading question about Poland, German and that other country was the most unfair thing in the world.
    it said they brought in a law which banned children under like 14 working in dangerous industries?? maybe???
    I found the next question harder about the problems/ dangers they faced I couldn't understand that at all.

    I'm so glad it wasn't just me! I burst into tears after the first listening question and had to be taken out so my teacher could comfort me. I really feel like I've let everyone down and everything after that was complete rubbish because I was too upset to concentrate

    I know what you mean

    I put überzeugt as the last box because it said something like they managed to easily convince their headteacher.

    And 'ausgerechnet' I thought was the one with the Schulsekretarinnen because they were calculating something like the amount of paper used?

    I got that too!!

    For the problems and dangers wasn't it something like:

    - the dust causes allergies and coughs (husten?)
    - then it mentioned herabfallende Steine - falling stones!? - and there was a risk of them being seriously injured by it?

    Was the 1 mark one asking about how the youngest children were treated, that they worked for 8 hours without a break?

    Was it just me, or was that a lot harder than the previous years? Normally isn't too bad but that was something else...
