    Eeeek that sounds darm hard! How can you make it sound natural if your not naturally german!
    I know! It's crazy! The biggest tip my German teacher gave us before the oral was "make sure you talk just like a German - not pre-learnt but talk simultaneously".
    I think it might be related to the fact that a lot of Germans take the A-lvl(there are 2 half-Germans in my class and everyone apart from me has been to Germany/has German bg so yeah, German A-lvl-ers are very "german" lol), so the standard is already really high...may be?

    Some of the questions in the orals were so bizarre that I can't even answer in English, let alone german straight away. @[email protected](but somehow I managed to talk about random stuff...hopefully that'll do it..x__x).

    I wonder what I'll get..o__O (I really need an A..ahhhhh).

    im not sure really what exam i hated..i probably didnt like english due to the sheer fact that im not good at it generally..the paper wasnt exactly hard it's just ...i'm not good at it! argh.
    Same. I can't stand English so I just don't enjoy those exams at all (not that I enjoy any exam in particular). Still, that's the one I'll do worst in.

    I did the central concepts in Jan, gor a B so was happy enough, my worst was the growth development and reproduction I messed it up sooo badly i came home and checked facts....made so many stupid mistakes. My History exams all went WAYYY better than I thought, I was so worried about them, except the synoptic history it was tough but still better than i thought. I didn't have any ICT exams did mine in jan.
    Lucky :eek: I would have killed to do CC early!!
    I didn't do growth etc. I did Mammalian Physiology. It was boring, but the paper was really synoptic-y. Made me glad I'd just re-done Human Health & Disease, & Transport from AS - I knew the answers my friends didn't! I'm still blates gonna get 173 UMS though.

    speaking of ICT, I could have known my ICT result in APRIL!!! I got 277 UMS in AS year and I got 85/100 in Jan there, that gives me 365 UMS.....which means I can't get lower than a C! anyway i did 2 pieces of CW this year.............but my bloomin teacher didn't tell us our marks! If he did and providing the moderator didnt change them too much I would know what I got overall!! Damn teacher!!
