    hello, im just wondering how everyone found the listening and reading. Personally, i found the reading pretty decent and the listening was a bit ...... weird/kinda hard/shaky

    Also Q7 for reading was it that she went to work experience and wrote magazine articles :/

    It didn't specify that she wrote articles; it only said she did her work experience at a magazine! I put that she works for herself, she wants to try something new, she travels a lot and I can't remember the last one I put :/

    i thought the listening was impossible - the reading i found was a lot easier, for question 7 i put that she did work experience and wrote for the magazines only because it said she chose her job at the work experience and she said earlier she wanted to be a journalist but that was a guess. i put she worked for herself, she wanted to change jobs and she didnt mind the time frame but not sure about that question overall

    I also found the listening pretty weird, to the point I just started to make educated guesses... Especially since in my exam, the CD stuttered over 10 times so we had to pause the exam and wait for a new CD. But by then I was out of the listening zone :/ Reading was much better~

    I actually thought the reading paper was pretty decent compared to some of the ones I've done before. As for the listening, hopefully the grade boundaries will be a bit lower

    I found the redaing went well and I put she did work experience purely because I had no idea what else to put. The last question on the reading was horrible, I don't even know what half the questions were asking me, but i think it went alright.

    Let's hope the grade boundaries are lower this year for listening...
