    I want to know that too. I got 68/70 on last years' paper because i knew about smoking section but if i get an essay about jobs i don't think i will get full marks.

    The listening was easy apart from the last question, reading was easy apart from a few questions on recycling, the first question confused me and the one on 2 points was weird, essay was the easiest thing ever.

    Overall it was alright, will probably scrape an A like I did at the mock.

    What did you put for all of the listening and reading questions that you can remember?

    Just thought I'd reply only from what I remember - and I don't remember much if I'm honest. If you give me some questions then maybe I'll remember the answers. I'm Italian so I think my answers might be reliable:Listening: 1. can't remember the first question but if someone repeats it I'll probably remember the answer, the roads were closed because of flooding, people should only drive their cars as a last resort, there was a cut in electricity.2. would get a penalty, didn't immediately go when the traffic lights were green, they are annoying/irritating in restaurants and I can't remember the other point.I can't remember what the other questions were, sorry

    The only thing I remember from the reading is that Angel? Or Angela?had two boxes ticked: that they didn't see virtual friends as true friends and something else... again I forgot sorry

    What did you put for all of the listening and reading questions that you can remember?
    Listening 3:
    palco
    abbandonata
    something about strong kids
    and i forgot the 4th one

    Listening 4:
    a lot of competition
    social trends
    you have to know how to design + something else
    going to university isn't essential because there are many different options
    he thinks italian academies are prestigious ( i really don't know if this is right)
    forgot this one
    to see all the stages

    Reading 2:
    there are more italian graduates leaving the country than coming in
    a lot of ppl are leaving the scientific industry
    low salaries
    idk for the rest

    Listening 3: yeah something about the spettatori who were hench and helped her out and
    Listening 4: you have to know how to design and to have the ability to handle things, sapere gestire l'attrezatura something like that.
    the thing about academies bring prestigious is right.
    i think the question under that was what does he think everyone should do and the answer was get experience abroad for a short time.
    Reading 2: i can't exactly remember this all but i know the last answer. the comparison that they make to the money spent and the government was that the government had spent the same amount of money that an italian serie A football club would spend on two players.
    i think that reading was actually a bit unfair because someone who's learning the language wouldn't necessarily know that 'serie A' is italy's top football league but whatever

    for the listening it was to get an internship somewhere, not abroad.
    I'm sure it was hire 2 players not spend?

    Does anyone's remember what they wrote for the section about the fashion industry- the question was something along the lines of what the guy recommended people who wanted to work in the industry to learn by themselves?🤔

    I was a bit stuck on this question and I ended up writing 'cucire' or sewing
