    A2 Spanish is much better in my opinion, I just really hate the style of the essays in AS. Its much more flexible with the essays and with the translation too.

    I am pretty sure it was "se van a comprometer", because that was the only sentence at the end that referred to them both. Also I looked up "comprometer" on spanishdict and amongst the range of translations, "to get engaged" was one. So makes the most sense to me imo
    but do you remember seeing it in the article that it had se van a comprometer because i thought it only said 'se comprometer'
    what you remember?

    I agree, for me writing an A2 essay is just like writing an English Lit essay and the questions are nicer too because somehow you can link everything you have learnt into it. For the translation I need to work on that, thats what brings me down:cry:

    Guys how much would you say AS grades matter in terms of getting into a good uni? Due to the changes that some as exams don't count towards the A level? I've got 8A*'s and 4A's at GCSE and I think A level I might get DDDC or worse ! D: It's such a weird balance

    Listening:

    Like 24/35 because I did the first part in Spanish and they were English questions. Anyone know how many marks exactly the first question was?

    Reading:

    I'd say 35/40. Lost two marks probably with all the VNF stuff and I wrote tuvieron, puso, and frío

    Writing:

    Like 32-34/35 I think I did quite well lots of points (question 10) wrote 3.5 pages with lots of different verbs and nice wide range of vocab

    Overall as I said like 90-93/110. I am hoping for an A and then good marks in the speaking (went well). So it could JUST be an A. That bloody listening. That is what I get for working my ass off isn't it!! Amazing thanks a lot life.
    How many points did you do for the essay?

    1) Fashion
    last season
    they give a bad example to young girls and they promote eating disorders
    all sizes must be exactly the same in all shops
    not all shops follow the new law
    dangerous machinery, few breaks and low salaries
    in neighbourhoods in the outskirts of cities
    read the labels well before buying an item

    2) Adverts
    portátil
    cadena de radio
    programa de televisión
    seguro de coche
    compañía financiera
    vacaciones

    3) Something to do with phones?
    mejor cobertura
    guarda tu información personal
    no uses tu móvil en el cine
    sólo envia mensajes importantes
    no uses tu móvil mientras conduces
    no descargues imágenes inadecuadas

    4) Camping thing
    esta primavera
    nada - es gratuita
    los padres deben ser en paro y el hijo debe ser minusválido
    a los que lo pasan mal económicamente en este momento
    una quincena
    la vela y el senderismo
    en zona cantábricas
    después de mejorar sus instalaciones
    a los niños incapacitados

    5) David and Hugo
    F - not his first boyfriend, said he has just broken up with someone
    N - said birthday but didn't specify it was his birthday
    V - something about meeting the next day
    F - they'd already moved in together
    V - question was about knowing what to wear to the wedding, it said they'd already bought their suits
    N? - working in the hotel
    N? - I think it said there were a hundred guests at the wedding but the extract didn't say numbers, can't remember the question that well tbh
    V - boats and cruises

    6) Prison guy
    atraco -> robo
    trató de -> intentó
    enorme -> tremendo
    noticiar -> informar, or vice versa
    think there was another one?
    una solicitud de amistad en Facebook
    tenía acceso a sus datos personales
    lamentó sus acciones
    a través de cartas y llamadas telefónicas
    se van a comprometer

    7) Festivals
    idk these answers sorry

    8) Gap fill - order is completely wrong, sorry
    madrugada
    lata
    ayude

    there were some more

    9) Grammar gap fill
    tuvieran
    conozco
    descubierto
    habrá
    pusieron/ponían
    dedicaba
    demasiado
    fría

    It's a bit blank sorry and questions/answers might be in the wrong order, but hopefully others can contribute or something
    for the 7th setence in question 9 the answer was not 'demasiado' but 'demasiada' im pretty sure because does it not change depending on the gender of the noun which was publicidad?

    1 thing i wanted to ask was what people thought about the first sentence on question 9. You see i had already revised my grammar well so i knew all tenses/moods but my teacher had mentioned that we don't need to know / use any subjunctive other than present subjunctive in year 1 yet tuvieran came up today. How can this be? Was there another option that people could have used or was aqa just feeling extra mean or something?

    You needed imperfect subjunctive, if your teacher told you that you didn't need to know that then that sucks, I'm sorry. I think I learnt it last year but I can't really remember, I guess it's on the syllabus if they asked about it :dontknow:
