    Yeah me too!! The reading was pretty difficult and some of the synonyms I didn't know :/ if I am honest I reckon they will be quite low, maybe 99/100 for an A? Normally when they are difficult it is in the low 100s and high 90s... My class didn't like it either, so fingers crossed the grade boundaries are low... The essay was fine though, I did the unemployment one.

    Ahh I'm glad i'm not the only one who found it hard! Yeah I'm hoping it will be around 98 for an A ! This was even harder than the hard past papers in my opinion. Neither of the listening parts were particularly easy and the one of the reading sections was so so difficult!! I did a lot of guessing :/ Just hope the essay will give me some marks!!!

    Yeah I know same, it really wasn't easy,, I've been reading French articles from newspapers and still found that I struggled on bits of the vocab, I know there are always going to be words you're not going to know, but it's just annoying... I end up going on word reference whenever I remember a word I didn't know, I annoy myself lol! :')

    Hahaha yeah nothing would have helped except being fluent. I think even if I learnt the whole vocab list I wouldn't have got some of the words in the scamming article .. Annoying as a few hours after the exam i suddenly realised what one of them meant Ahhh wellllll.
