I thought it wasn't too bad..........except one question on the reading and writing.<br><br>What the hell was the multiple choice with chocolate, cheese and something else? It said something like 'Je prends un dessert apres mon repas mais PAS DE FROMAGE.'<br><br>Then it only gave pictures of cheese, chocolate and something else that looked like a huge bowl of whipped cream. I just ticked the chocolate. God knows what the other thing was.<br><br><br>

pas de fromage is without cheese basically haha

From what I remember it was the chocolate but then again i can't remember what the third option was. They basically try to confuse you by putting a picture of cheese so if someone hears cheese they'll automatically cross it without listening to the rest of the sentence...

I'm worried about my last essay and the comprehension to be honest :/

Yeah I know it wasn't cheese, but I just wanted to be sure that that meant chocolate! Hopefully it wasn't cheesy chocolate.

I've discussed this question with my two friends who get straight A*'s in French. It was saying that she ate the dessert but did NOT eat the Cheese. The thing that looked like a "huge bowl of whipped cream" was icecream. So the icecream was the dessert and what she ate, not the chocolate.

Pretty ****ty question. I eat chocolate for dessert all the time! Doesn't exactly test your French, rather how good you are at recognising drawings of food.

Maybe you get the mark for just avoiding the cheese.

Probably either would be accepted (chocolate or the ice-cream). I for one do eat chocolate for dessert...

I put the ice cream as I don't think a chocolate bar counts as a dessert, but it's debatable. I wrote over 300 words on the essay, will I be penalised?

you might be taken down a few marks but I don't think it will be anything major.. especially if your content is good.
When I did a mock my teacher removed a few marks because I had written too much for the small essay but I don't know if it's going to matter :/

Can't wait till august to find out how I did -.-
