    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
    can you say ' quise poner mi granito de arena?' if not how would you say this?

    Smeggo For the writing do you think it's ok to talk about volunteering in summer school where children can learn to act, dance and sing even though I didn't completely relate it to Spain?

    1. He felt confident, excited and 2 other things that I've forgotten about
    2. They've waited a long time to have a Mexican Formula 1 driver and Formula 1 is starting to be a popular sport in Mexico.
    3. Everyone called Sergio is called Chepo in Mexico
    4. I think the question asked about his experience in the early stages of his career and the answer was that he went through difficult stages
    5. Train hard every day.

    Sorry, complete forgotten about what I wrote for that question!
    I think you could have also had that he is the only F1 driver in his lifetime right?

    Markscheme (my opinion):

    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 think the part about it being successful in Germany is irrelevant, right? I think the question was what do businesses have to do and why?

    They were two separate questions - one was about what businesses need to do and the other about where the idea for the scheme came from or something

    What was the question about where it came from? I don't remember that at all.

    The line below refers to that question, there was another question asking why Spain had decided to introduce these schemes

    Can't quite remember the spanish, but the meaning was definitely what I said earlier. You probably answered it but forgot about it tbh. It would look pretty conspicuous having a whole question blank on your page

    OK I remember why I got it wrong
    I thought it meant why as in what the reason was for its introduction
    So I wrote to fight unemployment amongst young people
    I don't think I can really blame myself since I understood the Spanish but misunderstood the English

    What do we reckon the grade boundaries will be like for this exam? The jump from 2013 to 2014 was 56 to 59 (for an A grade), they have been on the rise for the past few years. I'm doing A2 but messed up my speakings, so need all the UMS I can out of this exam, which is piss easy considering the amount of UMS its worth

    With those big reading passages, the answers to the questions are found in order they appear in the text if you get what I mean. I can see why you could get confused with that question, but the information that applied to it was found in between the bits that applied to the previous and the next questions, which helps you isolate what you need

    I know, I did wonder why they asked it like that. But I think it was just the fact that the question wasn't very specific and I thought they might be trying to catch us out I guess.

    I reckon it will be around 57 or 58 seeing as it's the end of the specification and they put in some tough questions so they should take these into account

    The answer was "dificil" - I nearly got caught out too, I changed it at last minute!
