    I thought it was along the lines of ¿Desde cuándo estás sin techo?

    Initially I put how long have you been homeless, but I think it was actually since when, so I changed it.

    I can't remember which one I put. Aren't they basically the same thing?

    Yeah AQA can be really pedantic. They're similar but they'd elicit different answers:

    How long? 9 months
    Since when? Last June

    That said, it's not certain I heard correctly anyway. ;-)

    It really depends what the correct wording they used was. Also, if it is deemed a hard paper, perhaps they will lay off on the nitpicking a little more? Who knows tbh. AQA are a law to themselves.

    @westsidegirl I'd say if you got cuándo - when, you're probably ok.

    For the tener structure question:
    1) Tener lugar - It took place somewhere
    2) Tener miedo - She was afraid of her boss because he was aggressive.
    3) Tener sueno - This means to be sleepy, she was saying that she went to bed early because she was sleepy.
    4) Tener ganas - This means to want to, she wants to work in England because it will be exciting.

    I understand you so much, I feel my biology exam went bad and I'm really annoyed because I literally memorised word for word the entire blooming thing. But just think of the good parts of the exam and they overpower the bad parts. Try it now and you will feel so much better
