    How did anyone find the AQA french listening and reading paper ?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    i found the listening okay actually but the reading was a complete joke, even the people who usually get A* and full marks couldnt understand the last question, especially when they were talking about what she wouldn't miss about Paris

    Loved the Of mice and men question, hoping for near full marks. Animal farm a little less especially question C, might have waffled to expand my points more. Other than that, a decent paper.

    Feeling: I put the points I wanted but my time allocation was a bit iffy and who cares about Charlotte.... Still did that question though lel. Oh and with English being a subjective thing for marking, I'm not sure how I did - my answering style was terrible - could have been so much bettter- and who knows what the examiner thinks of my points.
    So we'll see.

    That's exactly how I felt when I saw that question! I chose the other one instead and made Charlotte's role into a point in that essay rather than writing a whole essay about her as I wasn't confident about the number of quotes I had for her.

    I feel the same about answering style as well, I'm very worried that I rambled on far too much and was too repetitive! Hopefully it went okay-ish though - I'm aiming for a total of 45-50ish out of the 60 on this paper...

    I thought it went pretty well, but I spent way to long on part A and B for Animal Farm. I thought my To Kill A Mockingbird essay was quite good but I only spent 10 minutes on part C for Animal Farm. I rambled.

    Poetry was really good but found the extract a bit hard and may have not been detailed enough for the theme mice and men question... Anyone else do WJEC?

    The part b for OMAM confused me so badly! I talked about sexism, racism, marxism, dust bowl and american dream but when I finished the essay I re-read the question and it specified to talk about the ranch :'( I don't know if I messed up or not..

    That sounds a lot like our exam question but I did wjec... As long as you explained how those topics are represented on the ranch e.g crooks and candy representing prejudice you should be fine

    I spent too much time on section A because that mood and atmosphere question threw me (the one thing I didn't prepare for!) so I didn't have anywhere near enough time to complete the poems.
    However, I managed to do a somewhat 'decent' essay so I'm hoping that saved me.

    I think I did well today, found the question on the 'darkness of mans heart' for LOTF easy and part A OMAM, but I think I could have made more points and links to context in part B, especially links to the ranch specifically at the time :/
