    Had my CIE French listening and writing exams today. Listening was horrid but the writing was easy.

    Key word: was. I went over the word limit on the last question by say 20 words. It had my future tense and my writing on the last point of the question. How badly will this affect my mark? So stressed, so any help would be much appreciated

    If the examiner counts your words and sees that you have gone over the limit, it could be crossed and not counted, but honestly don't stress you may be lucky

    did some serious searching in my worry and found that they don't penalise those going over the word limit, and shouldn't do..hopefully everything's sound

    I found the last couple of pages hard as well, but the writing didn't seem too hard.
