    Grade boundary A* predictions anyone?
    A* is normally high, wasn't it at 90% (36) last year? I honestly can't see it being that high this year...but I don't know where they'll put it

    I hate that feeling when you come out and think " I really wanted to put that but I didn't - but it was right."

    Got an A then, I'm really really upset with myself

    I'm pissed off I didn't put "desarrollar", because I knew it was right

    Don't beat yourself up, they might be lower this year as the papers were difficult

    I hope it's 35/40 for the reading. Do you think it might be ?

    Yes, I did because he was talking about settling down and getting married and things and that he was still young wasn't he?

    On the reading would you get a mark if you said 'there was a line to the airport'?

    The last two sections (semana santa and the paper factory) were insane. Everyone I knew guessed those, and some of the reading was hard, especially the photography competition - why would you put photos on a carpet? For the other option I put postcards because I recall reading "carterras", but apparently this means portfolio. Annoying since I did well on all of the past papers and felt so motivated to get an A*, but I don't think that's possible after those last two listening sections, they destroyed me.

    Join the club after a devastating English exam I was looking at Spanish at being my pick-me-up as I've had A*s on equivalent papers for like, 2 years, but no, I felt like crying after that listening the reading was okay, but that photography one was ridiculous, rugs and wallets it turned out to be. WHI EVEN DOES THAT!
