    So I've got my WJEC German AS results back and I got a C on the oral part which I was not expecting and a high A on the written paper giving me a B overall, I was wondering if anyone else did worse on their oral that they expected and also how do remarks for orals work? I'm assuming you can't get a copy of the 'script' but is there usually a lot of ambiguity in oral marking so is it likely to change if I got it remarked? I found it very strange as I usually do really well in orals, I got an A in the mock and I didn't find the exam particularly hard!

    I know not many people do this course but if you have any useful info I'd appreciate it!!

    Thanks

    I think you might be able to get the script or an audio file back at least?

    I did worse than I expected on my oral too (though i'm AQA) - I was expecting a comfortable/high B, but I got the exact number of marks needed for a B

    don't worry about it, I did A Level German and was in exactly the same situation! Low A in the written paper and a C in the oral so I got a B. I resat it this year and got 95% in the AS oral exam- and I swear I can't actually speak German Soooo much easier the second time round and I didn't prepare for it one bit plus I got an A overall in A2 so resitting was really worth it.

    it's so annoying isn't it!! I feel like the external examiner didn't really ask enough but I still said loads and i'm usually good with accuracy so I don't know where I went wrong :/ I think i'm going to wait till I go back and speak to my teacher because i'm not in any rush it's just so annoying!

    Thank you! I think resitting it would be worth it but I don't know whether i'm going to drop it or not because i'm applying for Natural Sciences which is completely unrelated :/ I would love to because I love the subject but there's SO MUCH WORK!

    I did WJEC Spanish and WJEC French. I got C's in both my orals which i was very disappointed with, as I was expecting As. I'm going to have my spanish oral and spanish written papers remarked because i'm only two ums off a B overall.

    You sound in a similar place to me, I was definitely expecting an A in my oral so a C was definitely disappointing, from the people I've spoken to it seems like not many people got what they were expecting this year :/ I'm still debating a remark
