    I underlined "maltratadas" and wrote "inseguras" instead of colegios and institutos...

    I thought thta colegios and institutos are basically very similar, while 'insecure" and 'badly treated' had a bigger difference... Seems like I overthought it.

    I'm quite worried about my essay not getting into the 'good' band for content because if not, it's a lot of marks lost 😞

    For the spanish sentence:

    Many people doubt that it will be successful given that there are too many risks.

    how many marks would i get for:

    Mucha gente duda que tenga exito dado que hay demasiado riesgos.

    For the girls in the bathrooms I changed 'van a' to 'usan' because I thought they were two different words
    Then for the first sentence I changed 'un par' to 'un centenar' or however it's spelt
    I remember also changing cuidan or whatever it was to 'disfrutan'

    I think you'll get 2/2 because the only mistake is you put 'demasiado' instead of 'demasiados', so you'll get 3/4 which will round up to the full two marks

    Okay now I've seen the question I remember what I put.

    The original:

    'Muchas niñas indias suelen ser maltratadas cuando van al baño en sus colegios’

    I changed ‘suelen’ to ‘temen’ because it didn’t say they were usually mistreated, it’s just that they were scared they would be?? The only issue is if there's a preposition after 'temer'. I hate prepositions in Spanish lol- I can never tell where they go.

    To be honest, I'm fairly confident with that. If you think about it, ‘inseguras’ is a state, so it would have to be ‘estar inseguras’, not ‘ser’. And I’ve just done some research, and according to a Spanish native speaker, you can have either ‘temer’ or ‘temer a’. The main thing I found with that question is that it specifically said to underline one word and replace it with one word. When I’ve done questions on past papers of a similar style, it could be multiple words, so this question was a lot more limiting. I’m pretty confident about the ‘temen ser maltratadas’ though

    Couldn't inseguras also work though because it could mean insecure as in unsafe, rather than the feeling of being insecure? And that wouldn't be a state? But I also think temen works well so you could be right, I feel like this question was really ambiguous

    That's a good point actually. Hmm. Maybe they'll have to allow both then! As you say, it was ambiguous so if enough people put both down, when they do their little examiner discussion they'll have to consider what they will accept

    I wrote this too after originally changing maltratadas to inseguras but realised it didn't make any sense in the context of whah the recording said. I just put temen though
