    You'll be fine! I don't know if I've asked before, but how was your speaking?
    Not too bad haha made very simple mistakes like "mal" instead of "mauvais" or didn't know how to say ingredients so I said "produit" etc haha

    Hello

    what structure do you guys use for the essay?
    Intro: Usually a staple phrases like 'nul ne saurait douter que' or 'on ne peut pas nier que' or 'bien que...' to get subjunctive in earlier and question the essay title

    Point 1: Usually against

    Point 2: Linking on from point 1 and for the statement

    Point 3: General point either for or against

    Conclusion

    Like you sad, that's not too bad! Your speaking grade will push up whatever you get in your FN2 exam so no panicking, haha.

    i've never heard of plans getting specific marks, the examiners usually just like to see a plan so they know that you've tried to structure it but there are no set marks on the markscheme for any plans, simply the actual structure of the essay

    What are some really key phrases which are useful for the essay?
    Using the subjunctive is pretty good. "Bien que" is a good one to fit in randomly. For intros, you could use "depuis un certain temps" or "on parle beaucoup
    en ce moment de". "est-il vrai que" is also good to finish the intro. "considerons", "tout d'abord" is good for starting paragraphs. "d'un autre côté" for the converse (if you use it). "par conséquent" and "en somme" and good for conclusions. Hope that helped! There's more at this link: http://www.realfrench.net/pdf/essay.pdf

    I did the same as you! My essay probably didn't go as well as yours though, aha! I think the reading paper was quite good; the answers were relatively obvious.

    I'm really unsure how the paper went. I think listening and translation were fine, essay was meh. But I've just realised I don't think used my own words in the reading comp that much..
    Hmm.
    Not sure.

    I used some of the text from the gap fill and the tick boxes in the reading to replace certain words. I hope that's allowed!

    I put an accent on the professionnel at the last minute and now I'm kicking myself because I should've left it! I put 'posent' for one and 'connaissant' for something..

    I found the exam ok, but I realised after the exam that I also spelt professionnel wrong. How strict are the WJEC on this? How did you all find question 1? I had 3 vrai and 5 faux.
