    How did you all find the AS French exam? I thought that it was ridiculously hard compared to the past papers I had done, and the Synonym question was ridiculous!

    I think the essay part was bad, however the listening part was great. What did you guys get for the phone app adverts part?

    The synonym question was pretty confusing yeah. All I can remember is: • perdre du poids • découvre

    I thought the essay was alright because i had a lot to say about smoking ( I chose question 12). I completely agree about the synonym question, that was so scary!. Did anybody else have the same problem as me on the listening- the MP3 I was given contained German and Spanish tracks, as well as the listening tracks from 2014 and 2015 for French! I had to listen to the third track down the list each time, for example:
    Track 1
    Track 1
    Track 1 - this was my track
    Track 1
    Track 1
    Track 2
    Track 2
    Track 2 - my track etc...
    This completely threw me off and made me loose loads of time, i was thinking of appealing to AQA.

    They had that question in the AS German and Spanish papers as well. A2 Students should prepare for a similar one in the upcoming exams.
