but french was zoo easy tho. I could have got 100% with my eyes closed, u lose. I win, victory to me ahahhaha

P.S. Aiming for those 10A*s hahahh
eyes closed? erm... you didn't really have to use your eyes for the listening paper, more of your hearing senses. But I suppose Charles Darwin's theory of survival of the fittest means that you've evolved in a special way to others.

I got an A in my writing coursework and an A* in my speaking coursework. I think I got a C in the listening and an B/A in the reading. What do you think my overall grade would be considering the 2 exams? Really need at least a B.

I thought they both went okay. A couple of phrases in the reading I didn't know though;

'Il me lançait du coup au pied sous le table' or something similar? I forget the exact phrasing but I put he kicked him under the table as a guess.

This one I really can't remember..à la fas or something similar in the final question when referring to what the guy wanted to do in the future? Saying how his friend wanted to go abroad/move to another region whereas 'j'ai bien décidé' and then that phrase. Any ideas?

That listening 8 marker early on was so irritating too..no time to write your answers haha.
I put he was walking on the table for that one :/

I found the reading surprisingly harder than the listening, even though it's normally the other way round.
Was stumped on the clement question, due to lack of vocab knowledge, and a few bits here and there. Hope the grade boundaries for A* are slightly lower..

Haha yes, the clement question was terrible too. I mean especially when it asked you what marcilla ( or whatever her name was) problem was, and how clement sorted it out :/ .

If your courseworks are A/A* you've basically already secured a C and you're probrably already at a B. ( coursework make up 60% of final grade) . So chances are if you do get an A/B on one exam paper and a C on a another, you will definitely get a B, and may possibly get an A.

I've got the same problem as you, but mine i opposite to yours - where my coursework is and will be lower than what i get on the exams.
(Coursework C, i'll probs get an A on both listening and Reading)

For me the reading was fairly challenging however previous practice meant that it was doable, however I too struggled with the listening due to how it was difficult to understand what was being stated. Who else struggled on the solar panel question? ICT tomorrow!
Solar panels? I don't think you did the Edexcel paper, because there wasn't a question about solar panels on either of the paper.

I think the problem was that she got distracted when someone is sat next to her in lesson so she'll strt talking,
So clement spoke to her teachers and asked if she could sit on her own in most lessons.
It was the foot kicking under the table which I completed miss out.
I understood "foot" and "under the table" but never made the connection
