    The writing section is seriously down to the examiners opinion.. What do you guys usually get on your writings ?
    Before I used to get 23 but In recent essays have got 25,29, 30 and 31 depending on the question/topic, however I think what I've written today was no where near that what do you usually get?

    If that was the first one it was just sinken because seit means present tense we went through the whole paper and I think I got a good mark, did the werbung question also which was quite good
    Can you remember any other answers?

    The max I ever got was 28, its the reading and the listening where my marks goes up and gets me the A but now I am not even sure. I tried to add things like the passive and the subjunctive but it was all finishing so quick that I had to end up rushing (specially coz me having to repeat the listening a few times)

    I put wird and sank. 99% sure sank is right as although there was a 'present' tense verb, the question had something like fruher in it, suggesting past tense was needed

    I usually depend on the listening and reading as I don't like doing the essay, and today my 3 worst essay topics came up so the exam wasn't really in my favour, especially as I thin ive lost a lot on the Listening and reading

    I've accepted my failure anyway as even if I do reasonably well like a C or a B, my speaking was awful so it'll bring it down. I've not been doing as well in German as I should so who knows, I'll find out on results day haha

    I wrote sank too, what the funniest part was the fact that sank and begann was right next to each other and I almost died because I was thinking how can these sound soo english ? and i spelt begann as began and I thought no way this is too english so i added an extra n and now I am so confused.. guys how can these examiners be so mean to us?! WHYY

    Ah, well I'm wrong in that case. I did get exactly the same for q1 so that's promising.

    Anyone remember the other 2 qs in the grammar? So far I have wird, gutes, haetten, enlaedt, sinken, begann, uberlebt, eignenem (not correct, just the words in general)

    What were the other 2 and did anyone get eigeneM?

    The 'einladen' was a separable verb so I've definitely got that wrong! I think that was a particularly nasty question but I thought most of it was okay! I imagine 89-ish for an A would be the boundary and I got eigenen because dative endings are -en I think?

    Depends whether was a definite or indefinite or no article
