    I found the Reading section surprisingly easy, but Listening was far, far harder, especially the job interview question and the final one.

    Yeah, same. Last one was something about a holiday, but the questions were worded really awkwardly. I ended up putting "skydiving" as an answer.

    Actually, I think this is just the normal GCSE exam... At least that's what I'm talking about.

    Yes the reading by far was quite easy!!!! i counted 33-35 marks, which should secure me with the A* i need

    i realised in the job interview, you had to listen to the guy and the girl and most questions were answered by just the guy

    I thought both exams made the earlier French exams look easy. Job interview question on the listening was definitely the most difficult. Unusually, question 4 was also the hardest question on the French paper too, rather than the final question.

    What answers did you put down for the final question? For her activities I got visiting mountains and visiting caves. I got visiting a taverna and guessed the other one for her optional activities.

    Caves was definitely on there. I feel like I should probably have put mountain climbing down but I didn't get the 'ismo' on the end, but you're right that it does fit in with the context better.

    I got tomorrow too but a few in my class got the day after tomorrow so I'm not sure. I said she asked about the weather as she didn't know the region.

    I got the day after tomorrow. I was convinced she said pasado mañana. It was one of the few phrases I could make out in the whole thing.

    Reading was fairly easy but the listening was stupidly hard. I probably only got around 30 marks.
