    Hi guys,

    I'm studying German A-level from home, and while this is cool because I don't have to go to lessons, I therefore also am lacking any kind of support. I'm sort of slightly worried because there aren't any past papers available for the new edition of the course, and I'm not really sure what's going to happen.

    If anyone did Edexcel German LAST YEAR, maybe they could tell me about the research part of the speaking exam specifically? I'm not really sure what's going to happen in it, or what to research for the presentation (does it have to involve German culture in any way for example)...

    A walkthrough of some sort would be very much appreciated!

    Also you should have some decent revision books that are up to date.
    Also there are speaking guides in the link below.

    Hey guys,
    For this speaking part of the exam, on the edexcel website on the sample assessment report, it says there is a structure in terms of what topic cards each candidate gets, for example it says candidate 1 gets topic 1 or 12, candidate 2 gets 6 or 7. This was the exact same order for my Spanish speaking exam that I took last week, so do you think it will be the same for German?

    I never thought I would say this but the speaking exam went so much better than the reading! And I could not sleep the day before my speaking exam but for reading I was very confident and it was a complete disaster!
    But is the complain going to help in some way?

    I feel you, was pretty horrible -- I felt like they deliberately used unnatural language just to make it difficult

    1. Hi guys, I'm new here so I hope I am posting this at the right place. Basically I am a bit confused with regards to AS german Edexcel and I'm studying it from home so I don't know who to ask. In the Hodder education book it is written that for AS you only need to study Themes 1 and 2. When I flick through the other themes though (for example Theme 3) I see that some pages have '' AS stage'' written on the top right corner of the page. Does that mean I need to learn those parts of the other themes too?
