    I found some of it easy , I think I got most of it but I rushed the very first verb which was like lessen and just put "la(umlaut)sst" because I always see the verb in that form and I was running out of time .. I got the wa(umlaut)re etc and I feel pretty decent with the adjective endings! How about you?
    Oh, for lesen? I think it was liest, at least that is what i got :3
    I thought it was good as I am better with verb endings than adjectives, and the 'bequemes' hotel is always a gift!

    I've got two friends that are resitting whilst also doing their A2 but they both found it hard - I would imagine that the paper will seem easier but at the same time when you've been concentrating on other things like cultural differences between the countries or whatever I imagine that it would be difficult because you're likely to forget a lot of the vocab.
    That's a good point. I've got two more of these papers to do for French and Spanish, if they're like this then I don't know what I'll do haha.

    Yeah. One of the students in my school that was resitting the exam was an A2 student. He got a B at AS, but he wants to get an A and so is resitting the paper.
    Apparently, your structures and vocab are more advanced at A2.
    Yeah, I imagine that you could pick up a few more marks on the essay, and then hopefully the reading and listening is easier in general.

    I wouldn't worry about it- only a few marks!
    If i'm not mistaken, the phrase before it was damals, which implies the verb requires a past tense.
    I think the subject was wir, so I put mussten with no urlaub, i.e imperfect of muessen.

    Dang it I put mussten with an umlaut and I've just realised that it doesn't have one as you've said that :P
    The course I want to do only requires a B from german anyway so I think i'l get that and then intend to resit next year! :P

    I can't remember the specific sentence but I put mussten too for one of the sentences.

    Yes! I'll leave it for a second and then the MP3 player says 'Bye Bye' and switches off. I then have to fast forward to where I left off....

    Answer all of them in German except the first one (and the one where you just fill in letters obviously)

    Don't quite know what you mean. Only a tiny amount of people who take the exam are bilingual. If you spoke another language, wouldn't you take the extra exam? (which not only looks good, but is also relatively easy).

    What did you get for the answers- i can compare them with what I got.
    Definitley traumen and werden, and then there was the one about what a director has to do on set and I put 'sorgen' which I'm pretty sure was wrong

    I'm doing A2 German atm and found the paper quite easy today. The grammar becomes so much easier to understand and construct, and I did so much memrise on AS vocab and so much of it came up so I understood that too. I got a D in the AS paper last year and within 3 months of starting A2 I was getting As in them
    Would you say it's been a hassle doing the AS again? And how much work have you had to put in this year, does it make it difficult work-load wise? Sorry for the interrogation haha I'm just concerned that it could detract from my A2 grade.

    It's no problem! if I'm honest I haven't done any pure AS revision except sitting in free periods/in front of the TV and using the memrise app to go over topic specific vocab, which helped soooo much. Everything else that you need to know for AS (grammar, adjectival endings, verb conjugation, sentence structure etc) comes naturally after the extra year of A2. So I'd say it hasn't been a hassle at all because as A2 gets harder you get better at the basic skills which are needed for AS. Hope this helps, and feel free to ask any more questions!
