    I agree! It could have been harder, but I still didn't do brilliantly on it! I just hope after doing the specimen paper the real exam tomorrow will feel a little easier!

    Having done ZERO revision for the past month for Spanish, I can only hope my mind remembers a lot tomorrow considering I was at a great level early May.

    Pray for me folks

    A bit too late now I guess but is it a huge risk if I've revised little of the play and loads more on the film? I'm much more confident on the film but I still keep thinking what if... :/

    stick to PEE, and use strong evidence and actually answer the question!!
    make everything relevant and don't say anything you're not sure on how to say in spanish!! know its obvious but if you do a perfect grammar essay and stick to PEE they can't really not give you anything less than 35 really
    Thank you for this, best of luck for this morning☺️

    I sat last years and think it was about the same in difficulty - a really nice paper though I feel.

    I regret my essay choice so badly. Hopefully the obscurity of the book we read might hide how bad it was.

    Surely grade boundaries will be lower. Last years English to Spanish were way easier.

    Yes omg! That made me feel so bad that I left it and started with the writing to boost my confidence and then went back to the listening!

    I think this exam was slightly harder than last years one (we did it for mocks) only because of the first listening. Everything else was about the same imo.

    I spent so long doing the listening that I didn't really have time for the rest of the paper. The paper itself wasn't too terrible but I really struggled with the timings

    Agreed

    The first listening was very weird indeed.

    My teacher said he thinks the reading and writing were harder than previous years but I don't think so.
