    It wasn't too bad...at least there was no damned cartoon! The last one translated as "Before tying clothes on, speak to a saleswoman" The bit about relationships wasn't too hard, but the bit about the heather person was a bit of a *****

    Hmmm, I suppose it wasn't too bad. Section B got me...and the Heather question was also fairly hard.

    Hopefully the other questions were ok though, should be able to pick up some marks there.

    Last year you only needed 29 out of 45 for an A* on that paper, so fingers crossed!

    the heather question was slightly ambiguous, although perhaps that was because i couldn't quite grasp the french. I liked the last question, I only saw it with 1 minute to go. i was lucky!

    I found it ok. Much better than previous years. But yep the heather question was not nice! The last question i put "before trying something on, ask the sales assistant"

    I wasnt keen on the question about food, the true or false thing. I think I put false, pm, vrai, vrai. How about everyone else?

    i put V,F,PM,V I think for the food one. It looked like the wording of that question was trying to catch you, so that could be completely wrong. I don't think the Heather question was particularly hard, only 1 part seemed amiguous to hard. The english section wasn't too hard either I don't think; I glad I learnt essayer before the test for the last Q though.
    Overall I don't think it was that bad compared to some past papers, and there wasn't a stupid cartoon which I always have to guess, although some of my friends complained that it was quite hard.

    I found it quite hard. I totally guessed the last question and I got it right

    I was quite upset and surprised there wasn't a cartoon one, it was the bit I did best at in the mock. Oh well.

    ..the last question was easy..put "before you try on clothes ask a shop assistant"
    for the relationships question what did u put for those?
    for the 1st i put that
    she had a happy summer with her bf
    he lived far away
    the relationship has ended

    and for the 2nd
    her problem was that she has an indian boyfriend and people look at her and she doesnt like the racism when she is with him

    and 2 things she could do :
    ignore the prejudice idiots :p:
    get on with her life

    kinda guessed on the last reltionship one :p:

    I said, 1.confront and stop the racists.
    and 2.ignore it and live her life.
    Hmmmmm, actually on reading 1 through it kind of implies that she should start a fist fight with them so I'm not sure about that.
