    I reckon for an A in the listening about 32, maybe 28 for a B and in the reading about 35 for an A and 30 for a B. Don't trust me though, just a guess

    For the first question in the reading I put she was taking her microwave because she said something like hopefully it will last for another couple of years. I cant remember the other thing I put down.

    As for the listening paper and the job question, I put interpreter.. More of a guess than anything but I am sure the will accept translator. I think there was more than one reason too.. I put because she could work abroad which is Im ausland.

    I think the grade boundaries will be quite low though so maybe 30 for an a? It was pretty hard.. Not sure. Grade boundaries change like crazy anyway so just be glad we are done with a whole gcse!

    I doubt it. Did you not tell the invigilators before the exam?

    I think translator should be fine, they're pretty much the same thing. I hope so anyway, that's what I wrote
    Here's hoping we are right!

    no one noticed until the first question because the sound test was too short to realise. Do you think we would get made to do the test again then?

    I do not wish to insult you, but I find that hard to believe. There is at least a good few minutes of audio before the first question as the narrator reads out the exam instructions that are printed on the front of the book. If there truly was a problem with the audio that made it difficult to hear I think an invigilator or student would have objected. I doubt anything will be done in relation to your paper.

    I think it said he was outside because he was smoking and someone didn't like it, and she wanted him to choose between her or smoking? I struggled with that question to be honest. Yes, the guy bought 3 laptops.

    ohh i know i just don't think people realised because the person was speaking in english so it was easier to understand and also the invigilators also realised that it was echoey so they told the teacher who is going to phone the exam board tomorrow

    I think the answer was, he was kicked outside because he was a smoker and she said that he would either stay wet or have to stop smoking
