hello, does anybody know if the listening is going to be 30 marks this year like it was in 2018? 20 marks for the actual listening paper as usual and then 10 marks to write a mini essay in french???

read through the lines and highlight what you want to write answers, try to find all possible answers as some may be harder or easier to write in english
basically treat it like a big translation paper lol
don’t ignore small words like “parfois, à moins, toujours” etc
make sure you know the different tenses
for the 2 marker at the end write one bulletpoint with a basic statement eg “the writer has a balanced opinion about blablabla because blablabla” and the second one showing how (reference to points or quote)
i hope this helped and good luck !!!! 🫶

naur it was good u had to JUST Listen
Reading was great, writing was very unpredictable but if u had revised it was straightforward bar modifying a few things. Listening was tough, didnt help that the whiteboard was quiet
will grade boundaries be dropped?

i doubt the grade boundry will get lower as the reading was really easy, if anything it'll probably go up by a percent or two
