    Thanks for that - it has helped. I think I am just in a panic cos I so want to get on do my A Levels. I have a few options of different colleges, so I guess (depending on my results) I can see what they offer me. I am in Birmingham and thinking about choosing either Cadbury College, Joseph Camberlaine or Solihull Sixth Form, but don;t know which one to choose! I have put a post out and hope to get some replies!

    Thanks for your help

    You might think of me as a freak haha, but I think I remember meeting a Lewis on the induction day and I thought it might be you, but I'm probably wrong.

    I did the one in June .. It was about eating processed meat and its affect on teenagers. The writing questions were about explaining your worst & best meal and persuading young people to have a healthy lifestyle. I thought it went well but if I want an A overall for language then I needed to get a high A, because I only just scrapped an A on my coursework

    I did this exam and yes it was predictable but still I had no clue what to write :eek:

    Also, I wrote more for the shorter writing task compared to the longer one which is never a good sign

    Im pretty sure I wasn't really descriptive either :P It was describe your best and worst meals wasn't it?

    I was stuck too ! And I think you had to describe as well as explain. I tried to be unique and wrote my answer from a critics view point.

    What grade are you hoping to get ?

    Oh yeah that was it, I remember it being weird because it had both describe and explain which threw me, I know its silly but still

    Well I got a high A on my coursework and before the exam I was hoping for an A* but now I'm pretty sure I'll only scrape an A, which I'd be happy with

    You?

    Hey i did edexcel linear! Im personally aiming for an A but i reckon A* will be about 160 because the new exams have had lower grade boundaries compared to the old papers, the exams have become slightly more difficult i guess.

    Does anyone remember any questions from the French edexcel paper? Or were there any questions people found hard?? I can't remember anything about it because it was my first exam but I think I found listening much harder..

    All bar one of my GCSEs (RS) were linear so it isn't a MASSIVE shock for me, but it does mean no safety net :/

    Yeah I came out of the non-calc knowing I'd failed but but was much happier about the calculator!
