    I thought some of the listening and reading questions were very odd and different to other papers, so hopefully the grade boundaries will be low!? Also the essay questions were weird and limiting. For the grammar I got 'son', 'se puso', 'apagar', 'iran', 'peleabamos', 'cuantas', 'cientos'(or something like that), 'infelices'... and then I put 'vuelvo' but I realise now I made a silly mistake, it was 'vuelto'! So annoyed about that! What did everyone else get?

    The questions asked which answer made logical sense i.e that actually answered the question

    Okay. The listening and grammar were good, hated the reading, and feel like I messed up my essay. All in all, not happy.

    Really not looking forward to August 15th now. :P

    You use 'ser' not 'estar' In this case

    I know the exam's over now, but just out of curiosity why would it be 'ser' in this case instead of 'estar'? It might be helpful to know for my upcoming A2 exam!

    For the passive you use ser for permanent things, and estar for temporary things. In that context you needed ser e.g la tienda esta cerrada .... De todos es sabido que... In the first context, the shop isn't always closed, and in the second, the fact it always known by everyone

    Oh, forgive my ignorance, but wouldn't the state of worry be considered temporary, meaning 'estar' would be used? I assumed it would be the same as 'estar contento' or 'estar enamorado'? All these pesky grammatical rules can be confusing!

    I do!

    How long do you guys generally spend on the essay? I get through the listening and reading quite quickly so usually have 1h-1.15 for the writing
    I always do the grammar question 9 first for five minutes, then a really good essay plan so my essay is basically just there but ready to be written formally and i do that within the hour and spend 30-40 minutes on reading and my remaining time on listening and checking over my essay

    Yes it's the estar for those as they are actual phrases using estar. 'Contento' is an adjective as opposed to a past participle
