    Guys oh my word, every single person at our school absolutely flopped the secret specimen 2018 papers set by aqa for our mocks like legitimately, no one could do them at all. The listening paper though oh my word, all of our teachers tried them baring in mind they all have degrees in french and have lived in france for large periods of their lives didnt even manage to get full marks. The A2 students tried it and no one could get better than 50%. I personally got 16/50 it is honestly tragic, french is my worst subject anyway but i got around 70% in the three other papers so a 7 according to my teacher but then i managed to get a 3 or 4 or whatever that is in the listening. because it was so hard our teachers arent even including them in our predicted grades or anything and are just deciding the exam board went off on a mad one but idkkkk im terrified. How did your guys schools do?

    Yeah we also flopped it the best mark in the class was 25/50, but listening has always been the hardest paper by far, due to the accent, imo.

    Oh my god you have no idea how much better that makes me feel i think our highest mark was 27 or something that is so relieving. I know listenings always been the hardest paper but does that mean the exam board will just ignore the fact its insanely harder than the rest and not alter the grade boundaries? How did you do on the other three papers? (You yourself and your class)

    I'm on Edexcel but I get what you mean, but don't worry - if it's ridiculously hard in the summer then the rest of the country will be in the exact same position as you, and the grade boundaries will be low, so it doesn't really matter how hard the exams are. It's just how well the rest of the country does
