    Why are new university students so stressed? Give three details.
    They have to get used to the larger classes

    They have to deal with the expectations of their parents

    They have to get used to new style of studying

    Right???

    What are the symptoms of stress? Give three details?

    Get angry easily

    ...

    I've forgotten...

    Why should you avoid cigarettes? Three reasons (I think)

    Completely forgotten. Something about vitamins? I probably did it wrong in the exam.

    What can you do to reduce stress? Three ways.

    Read a good book

    Do physical activity

    Laugh

    The exam was a tough one - a lot tougher than the past papers I'd done in preparation. The first question on reality TV casting was horrible - what an awful way to start an exam!

    I put subjunctive as well for this.

    The essays were nice though - I predicted that sport and advertising would come up! However I ran out of time and had to rush - didn't get time to read over my work at the end :/

    i had actually more revised publicity, but then I saw the question on Sport and it was such a Godsend! Had to do the Sport one as it was far and away the easiest of the three ( as far as I was concerned at least!)
    Yeahh I was very happy when I saw the question I'd just written a plan for a similar essay a couple days ago so that was quite convenient for me. XD

    I think they know, they're just putting down what they remember in English because it's easier than trying to remember the French for it.

    I did the 2014 paper last year and ended up scraping an A...This paper was far nicer, hoping my UMS goes up as I'm finding A2 very difficult!

    If my speaking and essay went quite well, how well do i have to do in the listening and reading to get an A? I found the reading ok but the listening was hell so not feeling very optimistic

    Thats what I thought first but the person who said it was "elle" as it said at the end "dit-elle" and the phrase was something like "m'ont _____" so the m would be an object but I don't know if that's right. Just something I read about object agreement in past tense

    Did it say in the passage that SDF meant sans domicile fixe or were we just supposed to guess? Did anyone actually know what it meant?!

    Also did people say that Claude approved/disapproved of MC Cool's (smh) interpretation of his song? I couldn't tell if it was a failed attempt from AQA at trying to be droll or not. The festivals question was personally crafted by satan

    It didn't say. It comes up a lot at a2 which is how I knew it, but someone on this thread said apparently it counts as GCSE vocab.

    This threw me off too, but my brother (he was also retaking) said that the question said 'would he approve' and since the text said that he probably wouldn't have liked it at all I think the answer would have been false.

    Oh my gosh I forgot about that! I didn't know what to put so I guessed that he disapproved because they said "Pauvre Claude". The rest of that sentence just didn't make sense to me.

    Overall my essay was good and I conluded. However I wrote one point/ half additional paragraph and ran out of time in the middle (once I'd sort of finished) and so I had to leave it in mid-sentence and couldn't develop the point.

    Do you think this paragraph would make me loose marks for structure? If I hadn't written it would I have done etter?

    I think it's better that you included it as it would probably go towards your content mark.
