    How can they be that horrible to us? I hate the exam board so much !
    I reckon I got 25 on Listening and 30 on Reading
    I lost minimum 10 marks on the reading but not sure about listening, what was it out of again? It felt weird doing an exam on A4 paper- in my school they usually shrink it to maths book size so our language mocks are usually tiny!

    I got A* in my coursework (all full marks except one which is 29). I think the exam was so easy, especially the listening. For the question where you had to finish the phrase, i put "storms cause floods", did anyone else write that?

    If i got an A* overall on the writing, an A in speaking, an A in reading and a C in speaking what would my overall be ? since speaking is only worth 20 percent, bloody hated that paper so much
    It is fully based on UMS which will be set by AQA. Last years UMS were: 210 = C; 230 = B; 260 = A and 280 = A*. Roughly, with your coursework marks you'll have, about, an A that is if you get the grades you said. However, the UMS grade boundaries haven't been released yet - they should be low due to the difficulty levels of those two exams!

    My school usually does the same.
    Sometimes we have to use lined paper...
    The listening was out of 40, and the reading 45.

    omg i heard the word l'inondation and I completely forgot what it meant and it was frustrating me so much so in the end i just guessed rising sea levels- then I remembered at the end l'inondation was flooding and i'm also hoping somehow they accept that
    Omg yes we might actually get it! I made that guess out of nowhere like I seriously missed all of that question but I felt guilty leaving the space blank so just thought i might as well test my luck ahah, thanks.

    Do we send off two speaking and two writing exams/marks. If so, what are the UMS marks for them because I am getting confused without the online chart thingy. It only has one section for the writing and speaking marks.

    Just to subtract from the worry - my teacher reckons the grade boundaries will be as follows: 19 = C; 23 = B; 26 = A and 30 = A*!

    What do you all think?
    I think:

    A* - 25
    A - 22
    B - 19
    C - 16

    So the same as June 2013 (which I found much easier)
