    Would you say they were particularly difficult or pretty alright ?

    In my opinion they weren't too bad compared to some questions in previous years

    Hi guys, does anyone know how I can improve my fluency in a week. I have my Spanish oral on Thursday but I've noticed I say umm and err a lot when I'm speaking. Will i get marked down for this ??
    You can still score marks in the top band even if you hesitate a little bit here and there, but only minimal hesitation.
    I would say mostly try memorising main points and good sentence starters and so forth. My fluency isn't great, it's one of my weakest points, but personally I'm strong at memorising so I'm just writing up loads of questions and answers to them, as I naturally start remembering them. Try finding out what you're strongest at, and then try to adapt it so you can help yourself.

    I give this helps, cause I've got my oral on Thursday too and I'm absolutely terrified 😭😭 good luck!!!

    I had my Spanish oral today and at the end I looked and saw that the examiner had circled two things in two different columns on a sheet of paper.

    Is this the mark sheet? Do the examiners mark the orals there and then? I'm so scared now 😭 is there any chance it's just a sheet with other stuff?
    yeh i think the examiners mark then and there, that's what my teachers have told me, maybe they were circling like which card you had or the opinion you chose etc? i wouldn't worry too much

    Was this AQA A2? And what were the pollution/scientific advances questions? Mine were on animal testing and pesticides

    How's everybody revising for the A2 translations? What do I do if I simply come across something that I'm unable to translate?

    Also, why is it normally >80% for an A in recent years?
