    Hello

    My cultural topics were France under occupation and Truffaut. I'm doing Truffaut for the essay.

    I'm nervous for this exam considering how high grade boundaries were last year, I'm hoping that AQA don't do something like that again and lower them!

    It's hard to predict what may come up, but I hope something to do with techniques or originality appears.

    Ahh that's okay then, yeah because if you get an overall A at AS, you don't need to do as well at a2 for an A

    Economics, wbu? Yeah, i didn't resit anything for Spanish and my a2 speaking didn't go to plan, so i am relying on scoring a high A on the unit 3 paper to pull my grade up. Just hoping for a nice essay though, what culture topics are you doing for Spanish?

    Do you have the listening tracks to go with the papers?
    2003 and 2010 I don't have, sorry!
    2006-08 are all on there, you have to click the year again (e.g. click 2006, then click 2006 again)
    2012-14 are on the link below (scroll to bottom):

    Latin. What was wrong with the speaking? You will have done better than you think. I'm hoping for a good essay question too. I'm doing la casa de Bernarda Alba and la Guerra civil. You?
