    Looking at the unofficial mark scheme I've dropped a few marks but it's not as bad as I thought it was? Still really hoping for the grade boundaries to come down though, I'm desperate for a B!

    Did anyone else put for the last part of 3) that he was happy because she got a research job in a (something, I forgot) lab? I didn't really think about simply putting that he didn't want to go back to Somalia... If I remember right the question was something about a reason why he's happy but I dunno, I'm probably wrong. I'm probably clutching at straws for marks here now!
    High five! I said that the person found a job in a bio-med lab or something like that. The question asked for a reason so it seems right.

    It just said something like "what proves he is happy living in Denmark" and I thought the fact he doesn't want to go home proves he is happy there. They'd probably accept both, who knows!

    It's a relief knowing someone put the same thing! I thought the same... hopefully it works out okay.

    Also, I saw some other people mention that they wrote les ados, I did the very same thing as well! I thought about writing adolescents but for some reason at the last moment decided to go all slangy... if a lot of us have done it then maybe they'll let us get away with it? I've seen in past examiner reports that they've allowed slang, so here's hoping

    I put 'victimes primaires' for main victims - would I still get the mark?

    I'm not going to read any of this thread because I know I'll regret it but generally I found today's exam a lot easier than some of the previous papers! I HATED THE LISTENING THOUGH! Especially the questions where you had to write in the answers

    Well personally i think we should start a petition on change.org to kick up a fuss about the changed format without prior notice so they have to be more lenient with grade boundaries. Basically like what happened with edexcel maths

    Question 1 listening I got:

    Répas
    Familles
    Milliards
    Personne

    Can't remember the other two
    For one of them I put états but the word before was de but I couldn't think of a synonym that began with a consonant, apparently pays, whoops

    I agree!!! They really need to sort out the grade boundaries. There is already a shortage of linguists

    how did people translate the last sentence that was something like 'We should encourage them to make the most use possible of their lives' or words to that effect?

    I wrote "Nous devrions les encourager a construire la vie la plus utile possible". I'm not sure if I'm right though. What about you?

    I think "devrait/devrions" is more conditional and means "should" whereas "doit/devons" is like "must"? I don't know though, it might be right

    I did on devrait (in mark schemes on and nous are interchangeable) vivre la vie la plus utile and then I did 'qui est possible' or 'dont elle est possible' but cant remember which I kept in the end :') YOLO! how did you find the rest of the paper?
