    I haven't done any revision.. not that much that you can do really! You don't know what they're going to throw at you.. though I need to do well to make up for me doing crap in the listening exam, and speaking the odd Russian word in the oral

    My oral was really good but I think I messed up the Listening, so I have to do well in this to pull my grade back up.

    lol, my coursework went ok, and i was very pleased with my oral, disappointed about the listening but i think i will need to get near top marks to be in contention of getting an A.

    Generally at my school the consensus was that the AQA Higher French Listening was rather easy.

    i didn't think it was that bad. i hate those cartoon questions though. sometimes you understand the french but putting them in order is just confusing. o and i mixed up hug and kiss but apart from that it was ok/

    It was harder than the listening, and annoyingly I thought the hardest questions appeared dotted throughout and not just at the end.

    I wrote that Stephanie was his Sister but it didn't say in the text.

    Yeh I also wrote that Stephanie was his sister, but that was a guess and I didn't see anything in the text correlating to that.

    What 3 things did you put for the very last question?

    I put:

    She danced with a boy for 2 hours

    She hugged him in front of her parents

    And I made up the last one.

    Oh, I put:

    She danced with a boy for 2 hours
    She was drunk
    Her parents embarrassed her

    I just made them up (except for the first one)
