    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?
    You might lose content marks. AQA demands that for full content marks that 'The candidate answersthe question fully and maintains a clear sense of direction', so I could see you losing a mark or two for content at the worst.

    I thought that 14 marks for one listening question was rather cheeky by AQA tbh. Overall a tough paper

    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!
    You probably find the paper easier because you are a year older and retaking (I assume?) whereas for us AS students I think this was quite a hard paper

    I think this was a pretty hard paper listening and reading wise (writing was pretty nice) so hoping for low grade boundaries, although not carrying on next year so would be ecstatic if I got a B

    Almost everyone in my class did sport. It's really common sense stuff that anyone can easily write about.

    I'm really worried about the A2 exam to be honest because from all the past papers I've done I got pretty average marks it's really frustrating. I'm feeling quite positive about the essay though but I don't want to be too cocky haha. What about you?

    This would only be the case if it was followed by a que - for example, la fille que j'ai vue. Usually etre verbs and past tense = use of object agreement. Avoir verbs in the past tense, however, will never change according to gender of what's being referred to as it'll always stay in the masculine form. However, if it's followed by que, then gender agreement is required.

    Guys, according to my French teacher, introductions and conclusions are not necessary. I myself, however, feel more comfortable writing both as I feel the essay will flow better.

    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!)
