Hey guys,

I have my CIE IGCSE French Listening on Tuesday and would like to do some practice. I was wanting to know whether anybody has any past listening tapes as I can't seem to find any? Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Is it possible to retake it?
Basically the problem is that the school decided to use different speakers. -_-
And they were so static-y!
Especially for the last exercise, quite a few of the answers were completely obscured by static bursts.
And the exam invigilator didn't care, or say anything.
It was so frustrating.
And we weren't allowed to ask for anything, and disturb the rest of the candidates, so nobody said anything.
But when we discussed it after it was over, everyone seemed to have the same problem.
And then the Spanish listening paper was the day after, and they got totally screwed over too.
I usually get from the 46-48 range, but this time, I think I'm going to end up with 44-46.
We're going to talk to the school board, but what can they possibly do?
It's not like they can give us a retest, obviously these things are pre-recorded and pre-scheduled by Cambridge.
But I think it's grossly unfair that we didn't do as well as we could simply because of some speakers.
Is there a solution to this?

I would write a letter of formal complaint to CIE, stating the whole situation and the condition of the speakers. You could also possibly go to your headteacher who can write directly to the exam board I think on behalf of your school. Regarding retakes, I don't think that's possible.
