    Sounds like you did really well!!
    Maybe on the reading, but I know I made a few silly mistakes on the listening. Hopefully my essay will make up for it! La Publicité... I could write pages and pages of stuff about it in French tbh. I think I was having a bit too much fun writing it in the exam!

    I think 40% of people have said they prefer their friends on the internet over friends in the real world

    For psychologists this statistic is worrying

    Something something

    I'm just glad they used adjectives this time and not infinitives
    Yes I agree! Last years was a killer!
    What did you put for the one about real friends stop everything when you're in trouble? Struggled with that one!

    I put they're ready (prêt) to stop everything when you have a problem.

    How about the online freindships? Anyone remember any answers?
    Hmmm. I remember there was one saying something like "Online friendships are perverse even if you are frank". It doesn't sound right, but it felt right in the exam!

    That's exactly what I got. I think it was the only one that fit in the sentence tbh, probably right

    I put franc as well because négatif and ....é didn't seem to fit.

    No worries, it's so difficult to remember a 2hr exam isn't it!
    I chose publicity, what about you?

    I actually quite enjoy it, I just need a decent essay title to come up and hope that the listening and reading sections don't kill me (as well as translation).

    After reading some answers I can tell I also made some silly mistakes in the listening, but nothing we can do about it now. I felt fine for the reading though and I hope my essay also brings my marks up! Shame I didn't leave enough time to check through my answers properly otherwise I would have spotted them.

    The second to last one stressed me out! It said something about the profits from the CDs and DVDs being sent to SDF (or something like that). I guessed it was an acronym for homeless people, maybe Sans-Domicile-Something. I put true in the end, but I'm scared I got it wrong!

    Sans-domicile-fixe, yes it also means homeless and I also put true

    Me too, I spent too long perfecting my essay.

    I got bored yesterday and looked through some of the A2 past papers, they look so terrifying! There's so much you have to do, it seems like you'd have barely any time at the end... Though the translation looks quite exciting!

    On the stress questions, was it okay to use the infinitive form of the verb when answering some of the questions (E.g Aller voir un film comique)? Like the one about ways of avoiding/relieving stress.
