    Made the correction and added the new question type. There was another one where you had to fill in the connectives but I can't quite remember that one.

    I got the same as you for that one. I thought there would be a question like that, considering I have seen them in French papers a few times...

    Question 12 was about what not to do to lose your job
    12(a) I think was poor attendance (or something along those lines), being mean to colleagues (not exact wording) and checking personal e-mails
    12(b) was "he will follow all his teachers' recommendations/advice"

    You missed out question 2! It was about what the people want to do to help or something. One of them was fashion advice, writing a letter to the town hall, something to do with technology and I can't remember the other one
