    Edexcel (if that's the board you were on) were tricky. The papers were much harder than the practice ones. Well, at least I thought they were.

    I did OCR and it was really easy! Especially the listening and the writing were really easy. OCR reading was fair considering the other 3 parts were really easy. I'm amazed Edexcel were hard because they are the easiest board.

    Totally. I found both the reading and listening paper difficult- especially the listening though, I mean WTF. I'd be really surprised if I came out with a B tbh.
    This was with AQA.

    Yeah, they were bizarre exams lol... I have no idea how I did. We did them in classrooms with a desk each, but the paper thin walls meant that a) some classes were getting 4 attempts at listening (because the tapes started at slightly different times) and b) you could hear other classes' tapes overlapping with your one.

    Last year i took the foundation exam (I only got C's in higher papers) I finished the exam in under 5 minutes, then had the entire exam to stare at the rest of my retarded group struggling. I was told I got close to full marks.

    Moral of the story is, you should of taken foundation.

    I agree! Let's just hoped we performed in all our exams. It's probably quite easy to fall down in one exam when you have five in a week. :sad:

    Aha, agreed, though I'm sure we'll all do better than expected. Plus, French cwk has its fair share in contributing towards our overall grade, so as long as that's good, we needn't worry.

    I did mine 2 years ago. I thought I messed mine up too, along with my German.

    Is it the speaking and listening parts that you think you messed up on? If so, don't worry - I thought I did too. My grade turned out fine in the end People generally do worse on those areas anyway.
