Hi does anyone have any tips for getting high marks for translations (french to english). I'm currently getting around 10/11 out of 20 but I'm not sure how to improve.

hey there lol i'm exactly the same. the french to english is always more complex with a tougher mark scheme, only thing would suggest is keep practising as much grammar as you can because the marks are sometimes more in the sentence structure than just the vocab you know?

have you done your speaking yet?

Same...
Speaking probably cuz i think i prepare a lot for that. I don't mind paper 2 but paper 1, I always mess up the listening qs
I feel like they won't be that hard this year though?

stressed LMAO how about you

Mostly worried about the translation and listening part tbh translation always snakes me with the mark scheme wanting something different from what I said and the listening is just hard always....

Best of luck! And if you see this after the exam...hope it went well!

i heard the wording of the questions in the german exam was pretty weird and through people off as well but hopefully lower grade boundaries? i can’t remember what year it was but i did see for french overall at some point 41% overall was a B!

I'm the same with translation tbh, was working through some past papers and I kept getting stuck on weirdly phrased French idioms and sentences that just don't translate smoothly to English. Here's hoping they're nice to us this year :/

I thought it was a lot harder than the papers from previous years; that slam poetry one was so tricky.

Oh my god yes! I didn't like the one about the French resistance and the English soldiers either. I found parts of the translation really difficult as well

I mean hopefully the grade boundaries are lower compared to 2019, cuz 84% for an a* seems so difficult to get
