    I think everyone found it hard so hopefully the grade boundaries will be super low (especially the listening). I've got A*s on most mocks but found today a lot trickier!!

    Yeah there's several AQA threads on here and the consensus in all of them seems to be the listening was hard.

    I had the same problem last year with French. I found both of the papers incredibly hard as did many of my friends and we all convinced ourselves that we failed but ended up getting A*s/As. Don't worry about it, you've probably done a lot better than you think

    That Spanish AQA paper killed me, I got A/A* on all the other papers (incl 2016) but this one was just horrible for me.

    True I think the grade boundaries will be lower for listening because most people did fail the listening including me lmao

    The Listening today was impossible! It's good to see everyone is in the same boat. The fact that people are publishing Unofficial mark schemes is freaking me out. I didn't know any question for certain...
