    On the whole though, you guys don't have to worry. I was retaking my AS French and I got a B last year. Trust me, after learning a lot of French at A2, everything becomes much better - your understanding, your essay writing, everything! So even if you guys aren't happy this year with your grade, don't be afraid to retake... Although I must admit, the paper was hard!

    I thought...
    the listening was harder than usual so lost marks there
    the reading was fine
    made 2 stupid mistakes on the cloze exercises
    the essay (publicity) was beauuuutiful!
    I'm thinking I got around 93 (raw) but that's a guess. Got 101 (=100UMS) on June 2014 paper.
    Is anyone making an unofficial mark scheme? Can we try to compile one OP?
    Thats a good idea! How do we it do it? Just go through each question one by one?

    It was 'pour que' so it has to be subjunctive I think

    Was it four details for the question asking about that girl's experience when she was interviewed? Does anyone remember what they were?

    Hello all

    I found this to be quite a fair paper (probably because I'm at A2) and I found the listening and reading generally quite easy, apart from the first question (in particular the 4 things about her experiences, pretty sure I lost marks there). Sucks when you know a word but can't remember what it means, huh?

    Am I the only one who did the essay on cosmetic surgery, tattoos and piercings? I thought that was an awesome title, especially for someone who had done minimal revision of the topics. In one of my paragraphs I went on a rant about how young girls are getting surgery because they want to look like their idols in the magazines, but what they look like there is far from what they actually look like.

    That was such a hard question, pretty sure she didn't even say 4. So I separated what she said, into 4 bits.. Only remember 1 sorry
    1. Something about stereotypes recruiters being stereotypical

    Yeah. I think they were:
    1) She was treated like an animal (that's what I'm hearing the answer was anyway)
    2) She had to act out getting angry
    3) She had to sing a song
    4) She had to act out falling in love

    Edit: Yeah Sara is right there was definitely something about stereotypes in there. I'm probably confusing two different parts of the question.

    Something about stereotypes, waiting for hours, only a 5 minutes interview and being treated like stars?

    The animal bit is right

    The other three, weren't they for question 3? The bit where they asked '4 things you have to do in a telephone interview?' or something along those lines?

    I've got it as:
    - She had to wait for hours- She was treated like an idiot- The interview was only 5 minutes long- They were looking for stereotypes
    Yeah that's right! Treated like an 'idiot', I thought she said 'animal', but maybe you'd get a mark for 'idiot'?

    There was the one about her phone interview and then the one about the real life interview - the phone had three, the real life had four.

    For the phone one, I got:
    - get angry
    - make a declaration of love
    - sing a song

    For the real life one, I had:
    - it only lasted five minutes
    - she was made to wait for ages
    - they were just looking for stereotypes
    - she was treated like she was stupid

    Not sure about the love or the treating like she was stupid ones, but I think the other ones are right

    Wordreference translates 'bete' as idiotic too, so you probably would get a mark!

    And for the first one, it was present yourself, talk about your qualities and attract the attention of the recruiter?

    Phone interview: Get angry, sing a song, declaration of love.

    Correct me if I'm wrong please.

    Now on to the stress one!
