    You're wrong sorry! The noun was endroit and it was publics
    Yeah I put this too because privés was the other adjective

    hi, for the American series it was False, as in the text they've said it was a British version of an American series and in the question it was an American version of a British series.

    sorry for my bad Eglish

    Anyone go for the essay question on music? I thought all the essay questions were pretty nice this year but the rest of the paper was a bit tricky!

    I think the noun was 'endroits' and the second adjective was 'privés', so the answer was definitely masculine plural - 'publics'

    Yes I did!! What points did you make?
    Can't remember 100% but for why it's so popular I said about how it is a good way to express yourself, form of entertainment (linked this to concerts and making new friends etc. that kind of stuff), feel part of a group, good way to relax and good way to concentrate (I literally said anything I could remember and tried to link it in some way to get my points up )
    For the good and bad influence part I said how it's good because it can make people happier (then I linked that to use of lyrics, melodies, blah blah blah) and how they can encourage people to make a change. For the bad influence I said about bad language in songs and how the singers can have a negative impact on people and encourage them to do the things they are singing about like smoking or whatever What about you? Do you think it went well?

    Hang on didn't it say votre opinion on whether its positive ou negative? I picked a side and only wrote about negative because I thought it was asking for your personal opinion on whether its a good or bad influence

    hi, I think you're right! At least I hope so as I also interpreted it that way and only wrote about positive influences

    Really? if your right then there goes another mark down the drain
    It wasn't I don't think. I'm not quite sure it was adepts either as doesn't that mean follower? (Oh I guess it could be then?) I got origines or whatever it was. Oh well, resitting it is then!

    Umm for the popularity bit I just went on about how it allows us to destress and also that it is everywhere in life nowadays. For the positives I just talked about how it makes people less depressed and something else I can't remember. For the negatives I just said about the bad influence rappers can I have through their language etc. and also how music can promote piracy (I was running out of ideas by this point).

    I mean apart from the writing, the rest of it was just ridiculous I thought. Like why are they giving us really hard verbs to conjugate in the past that most of us would never have seen. The first question was really hard too and most of the reading. Not sure hopefully a B but really need an A Hbu?
    Ah yeah they are good ideas yeah it was a tricky paper, that synonym question was a bit odd as I've never seen a question like that before! And yeah Q9 stumped me a bit with peindre and some of the words were hard to conjugate I'd love an A but it was a hard paper but I think everyone has found it a bit tricky this year so hopefully there will be lower grade boundaries so we can both get our As

    Grade boundaries are probably going to be low, everyone found it hard, definitely harder than the mock (2015) paper. 83 for an A is a good estimate (I think someone said this earlier! XD)
    I think I said it. But thinking about it again, in 2014, one hard section caused the grade boundaries to drop to 85. There were several here so I'm thinking anywhere between (80-83), although nothing less than that.

    Thinking I got a B overall. Damn, wanted an A
