    Yeah should be calm to be fair. I answered the first question in Spanish and not English last year haha so ended up with like 78/110 or something. Should be alright though. I did my speaking today and hopefully got an A so i'm really pleased! I hope I can get like 95 in the AS, that would be super. Would set me up nicely if I bottle the A2 aha.

    That's what I'm hoping for too. I think I could do well on the A2 paper it's just the translation could go either way

    I just did my A2 speaking. It didn't go badly, but it's hard to judge how well it went. I need to focus on my AS retake now.
    For the essay, do I literally do introductions, points for, points against, conclusion, using as many examples and opinion phrases as possible, linking it back to today's society?

    I think you are ready, have you planned as many essays as possible? Also if you look on websites such as language resources and tes and espanish there's plenty more resources! I haven't had time to do any of the papers I only did one essay from the June 2015 so I'll need to find all my stuff from last year haha (Last minute I know)
