    I entered for Spanish GCSE at my school as the only student in the whole school so the heqdmasted was really hesitant to let me do it as my grade would represent 100% of the schools overall grade for Spanish, how ever I have not been taught in school or anything so my grammar can't be perfect, I lived in the Dom.rep for a couple years and personally I found the exams to be too easy, I don't think I dropped a mark between the two, and the reading was finished in 20 mins, I had to ask to leave early which they eventually allowed

    Im not sure if you did the same paper as me as i live overseas but was Q4 listening one about a festival for you?? I thought it was hard!!

    I said it lasted 9 days, and he liked the music as he hadn't heard it since he was young/reminded him of his childhood. Then for part 2 I said its dangerous because you can get robbed, and that you must always stay with a friend and not bring valuables, and that next summer he was going to stay with his brother in Valencia???
    Not surprised if I got 0 on that- got A*s in both mocks but this seemed like the hardest paper so far!

    Woahhh phew i was so worried hahah as my friend put something about a circus?!! lets hope grade boundaries are low :-)

    Also the written one for the reading was tough, one of the questions was worded very weirdly- something about Manuel and what his daily routine shows about spanish teenagers?? thought that was odd.... and the last reading question about dream hotels- one question mentioned 'un corazon' and that was confusing!!! ahhhh need to stop worrying as its all over now!!

    They were talking about technology/Internet and the effects, my answers was they his routine showed that they're addicted to the Internet, and the last question was about future hotels and how they're going to have to change as they're main customers are people traveling for work so they're going to have to be more homely and in the future identical to a home, and it was talking about features such as a robot which would serve you 24/7 and identify your mood though facial expressions and also how hotel workers will need to know what the customer likes by talking to them ect...
