    im hoping 24 for an a lol, thats how bad i did, really wanted the A cos i got A's in both the writing and speaking, and hopefully the reading however if i get a low c or even a d (and i wouldn't be surprised) then i probably gonna get a overall b but i want that A so badly
    I'm glad I put in the extra effort in the Speaking & Writing or I'd be in an unbearable situation now

    Bus, she said she'd been to the cinema but had left it on the bus I think. They were trying to trick you from the offset.

    I'm actually so glad other people found it hard as well.

    I found the listening exam ridiculously hard; I couldn't understand a word.

    I found the reading exam way easier, but I'm just hoping for a C at the moment.

    For that keeping healthy one, was one of the answers Aerobics after school or was that a trap. Also, that question about what each family person didn't like, was the Dad's reason the Excursions or Weather?
    I think she said something like "lots of people do aerobics but all I do is walk to school" so aerobics was a trick I'm fairly sure, sorry
    I think the dad was excursions because she said the weather was nice but he didn't like walking up mountains or something.

    I hated the listening, I reckon the most I can get is about 28/30 and that's assuming I got everything else right... it's so annoying because I've done several practice papers and got in the 36 region and then in the real thing I understood none of the last question whatsoever! Plus I found the CV/job interview one really hard too so I think I dropped probably half the marks there.

    Also did you guys get time at the end of your listening to go over any answers? We had about five minutes in our mock but then yesterday we didn't so I didn't even have time to try and think of some sensible answers for the last question

    I got a few minutes, I think.

    I got As/A*s on the Speaking and Writing assessments, and I'm pretty certain of an A on Reading yesterday. Assuming I did, would a C in Listening get me an A over all?

    It depends on whereabouts between the boundaries all your other marks are. If you look on the edexcel website there's a UMS calculator and you can put in your known scores and see what that would have got you in previous years to see what you need from the exams, here's the link http://www.edexcel.com/i-am-a/studen...our-marks.aspx to get an A you need 240/300 UMS

    For the controlled assessments, do they all get individually marked or do the examiners pick a few, mark them and then decide whether to mark everyone else from my school up or down??

    I think they mark a few of the writings and moderate them all based on that, but mark all the readings externally.

    It depends on the grade boundaries, sometimes it's been 27, sometimes 25, usually around there but they move every year so you can't be sure

    Just looked it up and pasado manana is the day after tomorrow, how was anyone supposed to get that
    In hindsight,

    "pasado" = past
    "mañana" = tomorrow

    so it equals "past tomorrow"
    which, I guess, is the day after tomorrow

    Also, what did you guys put for

    1. The last question on the reading, A, B or C?
    2. What a CV should be like? Positive, neat, precise?
    3. What you shouldn't put on a CV? Photo? Age?
    4. What you should put on a CV? Past experience? Future plans?

    Finally, I put down safety for what the Dad didn't like, I just assumed they went back because the dad felt it was unsafe, but your answers of the 'expedition' seems more correct, and you probably understood it all, I didn't
