    I put that tense for the last sentence too!! Think that would have tripped most people up though, although i forgot the second 'E' on mangée I think😭😭
    Ooooh thank god haha, yeah it's PDOP I think. All in all seeing as I was aiming for an A*, I think the boundary with be 81/82

    Think I put à Noël for Christmas? (saw it in the text)

    I can't even remember the last sentence haha, what was the rest of the sentence?

    (Original post by Swifty139)
    Yeah was all a bit odd idk

    I didn't notice any subjunctive although I forgot to put de Noel for Christmas tree xD I didn't know what to put for 'on Christmas' either so I just went with 'le Noel'?

    Do the last sentence ('for food that you haven't eaten' -> 'Pour la nourriture que vous n'aurez pas mangée?

    I'm sure you'll have done great! I'm aiming for an A but not sure whether I'll have got it :/ is that your boundary prediction for the A*? What is it out of again I've completely forgotten! I found the listening horrific but apart from that I thought I did ok?? Hopefully 😂

    I put simply "que vous n'avez pas mangé"

    "Vous n'aurez pas" = you will not have

    + how did you guys translate "supposed to"? I put "vous DEVRIEZ"

    Yeah I think people will have found the translation quite nice (I realise my silly mistake now) could be a tad lower, i'd say maybe 72 for an A? I only need an A but i've put so much effort into French this year and I love it, I just want the A* to do the language justice haha. My essay was dreadful though oops.

    I put 'vous n'aurez pas mangé' for the last sentence and yes I put 'vous decries' for supposed to! How did you differentiate between 'New Years' and 'New Years day' or whatever it was?

    that's what i was thinking omg, i was just about having a crisis thinking i'd put the wrong answer :'D (well i put 'qu'on n'a pas mangé but still ... i did change for vous for the sentence before though, because it seemed like a command directly to the reader .. do you think i'll lose marks for using on/vous even if they were both in different sentences? ;()

    (also, in the future 'n'aurez pas', why would we need the extra 'e' on mangé? since it's avoir right o:?)

    Yeah I said 'que vous n'avez pas mangée' too!

    And I said 'vous devriez' as well.

    Think you need the extra 'e' as the que makes it act like a direct object pronoun (that's what I was taught anyway haha) and nourriture is feminine

    Unfortunately you will lose some marks for using on/vous the mark scheme states you can use tu/vous/on but they must be used consistently throughout x

    Sorry my phone autocorrected that, just to clarify yes I did put vous devriez 😂 I didn't think I needed the extra 'E' tbh but I guess I could be wrong I don't know umm i know you're supposed to be consistent but the thing about French is, whilst they have a mark scheme to follow, often it's entirely subjective to the examiner! I was told that if you out five different examiners in the same room with the same translation, you'll get 5 different copies! So who knows really

    How did people translate which bin to throw their rubbish in?
    I think I put something along the lines of "la poubelle dans laquelle on devrait jeter ses déchets" but I'm not sure

    That's grammatically correct and i'm sure the MS will give lots of options. I put 'Dans quelle poubelle il faut jeter vos déchets'
