    I heard that the French paper was a bit hard. I might just revise vocab and hope the paper isn't as bad.

    Yea i'm just revising vocab and reconsidered not learning the tenses which i will probs cram in tonight anyway. Just remember, the Spanish exam is coordinated by a different group of people to the Spanish, and the grade boundaries should be low!

    I wasn't worried about it until I did the French listening on Tuesday, slightly scared they're going to throw in a load of random topics out of nowhere like they did with that exam I'm just going to do some past papers tonight, what about you?

    My class was told to write above pictures their spanish names. Eg. If there is a picture of a beach, write above it ' playa ', picture of grandparents ' abuelos ' ect c:

    How was your exam?
    Personally I felt the reading was easy but the listening seemed average but better compared to last year's paper.

    i felt that the listening was okay - nothing overly complicated ^^
    however i did find the higher reading more difficult than any of the past papers i've done x.x
    any bits you found difficult ?

    i usually get an A* in the reading and the past papers i did yesterday were all comfortable and the listening i got at least an A in the ones i did yesterday but i couldn't understand i thing today for some reason, idk how i did tbh. Eitherway i'm not too bothered, i want to learn spanish but in a way were there is no pressure, this gcse is all about memorisation, especially with coursework, you don't actually have to understand anything, its how good your memory is. (for some students)

    The writing question and in one on them it said confianza which I thought meant trust but when I asked my teacher she said that it means confidence in presentation. So some silly mistakes like for abuelo I wrote aunty instead of grandmother other than that it seemed okay.
