    why was it fría not frió
    Because agua is a feminine word. They use el agua because la agua doesn't sound right. It's las aguas

    It's agua frío because agua is masculine

    No, it's 'el agua fría', it is en exception! Agua is always femenine, but it is 'el agua' to aviod confusion, when spoken, as 'La agua', if said very fast could be confused with something else!

    This is a strange question but I wonder if someone could help. I did question 10 for the essay (on healthy living) and for some reason when I was talking about healthy diet for example, I kept on using la consumpcion instead of el consumo, I have no idea why, I used it about 6/7 times in the essay!! Otherwise I felt my essay was ok with examples etc commented on, will this error I made effect my content severely or just bring down accuracy do you think??

    Yeah I know the frustration! I'm normally so much better in essays! Well I'm hoping they'll only give me a bad accuracy mark cause I'm hoping they understand what I meant! Might ask my teacher... I hated that exam!!

    What did everybody think of the paper? It was generally pretty great, but I choosing between 'puso' and 'ponía' for the 70s question was difficult. I put the latter. Also a few questions on the phone-stealing question were kinda weird. The essays were just strange - advantages and disadvantages of living alone? Living a long life? The positive and negative influences of celebrities on youths? I liked Section A and don't think I dropped many marks; but section B wasn't so great. I did question 12.
    I put pusieron, it was plural wasn't it? I swear it was "mis padres"?

    In general I thought the paper was a dream but there are probably a few little mistakes I made! I know I wrote minusválidos as minus validos which I probably won't get a mark for, and the David/Hugo question was horrible- I ended up with 3 Ns? but in general is was ok, I loved the essay on longer lives!

    I thought for the si clause in the grammar section you had to use the imperfect subjunctive so I put tuvieran? Is that wrong? And I also put fría

    It should only affect your accuracy, unless the examiner is evil and does not stick to the mark scheme, but I doubt that

    ah crap, I thought the imperfect subjunctive conjugation was tuvieron but I just looked it up and you're right! Maybe my o will look like an a...?
