    Hahah thanks! Well I went to a french school so I didn't have to pass the selectividad but the french baccalauréat and the conditions to be accepted were to have a 14 overall which is like an 8 out of 10 in the selectividad. Also, I needed to have a certificate of a B2 level in english. What about your conditions?
    Wow so you speak french as well?? Wow I did french for two years about six years ago but it wasn't really that useful hahaha Well I had to get an average of 8 out of 10 in Bachillerato with a minimum of 7 in Chemistry and Biology. They didnt ask for selectividad but I did it anyway just in case though (worst days of my life hahah). Oh and I think I needed a 6 or something in the IELTS (which I think is a B2 anyway)

    Im glad too!! I really don't know to be honest, I think most of the bands are sold out, but I wouldnt have bought one anyway. I think I might get some individual tickets to some parties if I can find someone to go with hahaha it's something I think about a lot because I dont know what to expect (I'm guessing parties in the uk are way different haha) what about you?
    I'll also probably join a few societies and sports clubs(there is a spanish and italian association so I think I might join and maybe meet other spanish people)

    We've done a bit of Spanish lit too but our Spanish wasn't quite good enough to go any further...
    Don't worry, it's kinda weird, we speak Luxembourgish (mother tongue) as well as German (from year 1 in school) and French (from year 2), but we learn in German the whole of primary school and the first couple of years in high school but then we switch to French :eek:

    I might come back to that as I've forgotten all of my Spanish over summer
