    Ooo no, I can't remember what C, D and H were (do you?) but i definitely didn't tick A.

    What made you tick that it was in the open air? I didn't understand that at all.
    I actually thought they were trying to catch me out as they mentioned the centre of the a working city haha

    I think c and D were that the Asuncion is a problem or something like that and he explains the timings of it and I think H may have been he has to tell others how to use it or something like that, correct me if im wrong but that's just from my memory

    The woman talked about the speech being in a plaza, so that means it was outdoors and in open air.
    C was talking about how traffic is a problem
    D asked if they explained about the dates when the bike lanes would be built
    H asked if the residents would be informed on how the bike lanes work

    Sorry, last question - feel like I'm bombarding you.
    Did we have to follow the particular stimulus for the essay question as i didn't really read it carefully because i was running out of time and started writing!

    Markscheme (my opinion):
    Q1 - listening
    Kids didn't go to school previously
    Different aged pupils
    2 activities at once
    His father can't read

    Q2 - listening
    reunión
    dificil
    nadie
    iré

    Q3 - listening
    Talk took place outdoors
    Traffic is a problem in the region
    He mentioned how long it would take
    It is necessary to tell residents how the new system will work

    Q4 - listening
    6 drivers finished ahead of him
    Feels well prepared, more experienced than previously, confident, can't wait for season to begin
    Mexico haven't had an F1 driver for a long time, F1 is popular in mexico
    Everyone called Carlos has that nickname
    His early years in F1 were difficult
    Young drivers have to work hard every day

    Q1 - reading
    can't quite remember this one, it was about illnesses, was pretty obvious from what i remember

    Q2 - reading
    Either left or right foot vibrates helping to direct the person towards their destination
    A bag which charges mobile phones using solar energy (there were other options for this one)
    Its important to keep the technology hidden/discrete in the design of the product
    USA is good for inventors because there are professionals out there solely dedicated to inventions
    He gives them the opportunity to go to the USA and pitch ideas to investors (guessed the investors bit)

    Q3 - reading
    figure referred to unemployment amongst 25 year olds
    Struggled with this one - i put qualifications help you avoid the dole and avoid social exclusion
    These courses are good for young people because they can earn a salary and they get a qualification
    Some companies prefer a certain course because they don't have to pay the young people a salary
    Over 25s won't benefit once economy improves
    Scheme introduced because it was successful in Germany
    Companies need to work together so they can reap the benefits of these training schemes

    I normally do well on listening and reading section, but don't put too much trust in this

    How'd you guys find this exam? I found it quite easy, but that's because I'm fluent in Spanish. If you guys want to know any of the answers, feel free to ask me
    For the writing, does it make sense to say 'quise aportar mi granito de arena?' The phrase is 'nuestro grano' not 'mi grano' so now I'm doubting if what I put works

    Roughly:
    Flu - things have been put in place to help vulnerable people
    Obesity - will cost more in the future
    Fatigue - scientists don't know the causes, it can affect the mind too
    Forgotten the fourth one
