    yeah but how are we expected to know how to say things like aids in spanish??
    it's in the specification and aqa expect you to know the 1000 or odd words on the spec because apparently we have nothing better to do with our lives

    Also I've been revising weeks using a little maroon AQA vocab book. What also really helped was I went to the library and got out Harry Potter in Spanish - reading that has really helped with the reading. If anyone wants to try it, DON'T GIVE UP - the first few pages are a nightmare to get through but then you get into the flow of the language and everything starts to make much more sense than it did before.
    Perhaps surprisingly, I hadn't come across AIDS in Harry Potter...

    They could do all sorts on phones; Spelling was getting worse; People were becoming antisocial. Also the ones that thought they weren't necessary were C, D and E I think - again I can't quite remember.
    Those were the answers I got

    I found Jan 2013 listening much easier than this one, although I used headphones and the sound in the exam hall is awful.
    Hm, our school has a good audio setup in all the halls we do exams so the quality was really good for us.

    Totally agree on the listening thing. Did every past paper (listening and reading) and got an A* and found this one much harder than any other one. Really hope for grade boundaries like June 2012, which was probably the hardest listening as of yet aside from today's.

    Thought the exact opposite. Breezed through reading, listening I found much more challenging-- hopefully my reading is good enough to get an A* overall as I know my Listening was poor, even though I would be happy with an A.
    Absolutely agreed...

    I put more time for sport and recycling? Because his timetable would allow more time dedicated to sport and not free periods. But I'm not sure.

    If you look through what's on this thread already most of the answers have come up. No-one can really do a 'mark scheme' because we can't remember what order the questions were in.

    I agree with this - More sport and more recycling.
