predicitions for the exam tmrw?
i just hope it's sport or free time because we have done that loads in the mocks. Do you know if we get to choose between 2 or three questions because I thought it was 2 but for the last few years, there has been one question per theme?

It’s two questions, they’re switching back to how it was pre-covid, because the examiners think that our year wasn’t that affected by the pandemic.
What did people think of the 2 bullet point tasks?

Hi, how did everyone find it? I thought the options were quite good, but I messed up a couple phrases in the translation, which was annoying since I usually get full marks in that part... I hope I don't get docked too many marks. Also, about the German grade boundaries... in 2018 and 2019 it was 201/240 for a 9, do you think they'll revert to that this year? Some people seemed to find the listening a bit hard... I thought it was a bit different to the past papers I had done... so lower boundaries? Maybe 196 is my prediction, I think last year it was 186 or something, but aqa said that grade boundaries were being restored sooo...

i think it’ll be slightly lower than 2019. For my year personally, loads of people found the listening difficult even people who are practically fluent
