    How did everyone find the exam?Personally, I found both exams pretty easy. However, I know many people at my school found it very difficult due to a slightly different format and a few complex questions. Anyway, here are my predictions for an A*:

    Reading- 27/28
    Writing- 35/36

    I put the same answers and I'm sure we are correct for that one
    I think both of you are right. I messed up on that. I though the first one was someone who raised awareness about smoking (that the only word I literally knew). Also, I put office staff/worker for the hotel receptionist. Think that would be a mark?

    I think so as a staff/worker in a hotel can book tickets
    I just put receptionist as that is a job they usually deal with

    But I didn't mention anything about a hotel. Just staff worker. I doubt I will get the mark but oh well.

    For the very first question about improvements and deprovements to the local area, did you get Green Spaces and something else?

    That listening test was ridiculous! If i got an A* in writing, A in listening, and potentially A* in reading, what is the lowest I can afford to get in listening for an A or A* overall?

    Plus, has anyone produced any unofficial mark schemes?

    Aah okay. I think I got that wrong as well. I remember hearing "de cualidad" so I though it was shopping. Looking back, I actually changed it in the last moment and I think I put green spaces and shopping in the wrong boxes

    It's okay, I'm sure you'll do well as I know i got quite a few wrong in the listening but hopefully it still comes out at a high A so that I can still get an A*. Don't worry about it

    Yes it was- I heard that as well as a disadvantage as there was a lack of variety of restaurants or something?

    Yes I knew I heard that. I put restaurant first and after the exam finished, I changed it And I also think I crossed out the green spaces box and put my new answer in the advantage box and moved green spaces to the disadvantage box

    You might- someone said that they only make the markschemes after everyone does the exams so if a lot of people said that then they might consider it
