    Yeah, I did Edexcel French. I found it harder than a lot of the past papers and mocks I've done. The last listening question about the drinks I completely guessed. I heard about two answers and made up the rest :confused: You?

    Ahhhhh first GCSE out of the way..French. A absolute nightmare, typically I do fairly well on listening and reading around 29-30 marks or so each, but todays edexcel paper was nasty. I keep stressing out if I did a mistake or left something out ugh. I am so nervous, every time I crossed a answer in the box, I drew a line through it like it says on the paper but I feel like I done something wrong. Ughhh.

    Tomorrow, RS life issues AQA, quite nervous, but revised for it. For the six markers I normally do two-sided paragraphs one for and one against and include a religious quote and just explain it and manage to get 5 or 6/6 each time.

    wait what drinks I thought it was something about her going to the airport and like whether she like watched tv, talked to her mum or sleep. Yeah, I did the 2014 and others and it was beautiful so easy and nice. This one was horrid.

    I agree! French was so difficult! I can't stand those X box things either. I much prefer tick boxes.

    Maybe there's a difference between iGCSE and GCSE? I just did the GCSE one. It was difficult though.

    I know about the vas deferens now, didn't before the exam XD. I don't think you needed to talk about respiration since the question was only asking about how the levels are maintained. Yeah, the percentage loss question. At first I wrote 8%, but when I checked through my answer I realised that doesn't make sense and that I forgot that it's 100-8, but got 92% in the end! I did the French AQA too. The hardest question on the reading was probably the last one. On the listening I lost marks on the one about the married couple. The last question was nice and easy though!

    Just praying for low grade boundaries here, like really. Yeah but do you think if i just put a line through the wrong one and wrote the correct one it will be fine.... aghhh stressing. Though, the reading 8 marker I think was much nicer than other years

    For listening I wasn't sure what the survey was about for the education one and found it quite hard overall.I can't remember what I did for the last question For reading I was confident until right at the end where I got paranoid and changed my answers for two questions when I had the right answer in the first place

    I'm sure it'll be fine. I crossed one, thought it was wrong, drew a line through it, then realised it was right. I had to try and put a tick next to it to show what I was talking about. Hopefully the boundaries are pretty low.

    I do the GCSE one too? The last question for reading about was some holiday camp and the last listening was like on either around town and two people spoke and you had to like choose 4 boxes and then one on like some girl going on holiday and the plane was late or not something like that. It was the higher paper

    Exam Subject: French
    Exam Board: Edexcel
    Level: Higher
    Feeling:


    The reading was definitely better than the listening, but not so much. A lot of questions where I couldn't work out what answer they wanted me to put, especially for Question 8. The listening on the other hand, don't even go there. It didn't help that I had some boy in my year turning his paper 5 times and making a very distracting noise every time the question was repeated.
    ME TOO! I was so disappointed with the listening and made some educated guesses for the 8 marker but reading gave me a glimpse of hope. Then I saw other people's answers on TSR and now I've just lost all hope :/
    Ah, and thats a shame you had to be next to someone so distracting~
