    What did everyone think?

      Fairly sound enough, listening was easy enough except what did you say the teacher was doing? Collecting copies? And what colour did you say they were wearing at the yoke with 4000 people?

      The comprehension on the robbery was a bit difficult and didn't know what cathedral was

      I said collecting copies aswell I said white for the colour anf i found he one about the robbery all right did u get the last part of the cycling one?

      Listening - alright.... definitely one of the easier I've done

      Reading - alright... I got around the 70s for this section

      Written - A bit harder than usual for me on the letter but not bad

      Overall, not at all of what I thought it would be.

      I think the listening was fair, maybe a bit tough for people who are getting C's. The comprehensions definetly of the easy side. They where way easier than recent years have been. The letter and postcard where extremely fair. There wasn't anything crazy in both and we could've gotten a lot worse vocab than cathedral. The letter was very general and allowed for a lot of room to expand your points. Overall, a fairly solid paper that I believe was on the easier side than recent years.

      I couldn't get "usine", never heard it before! It was for the mother's occupation for Q9. Other than that I found it easy, finished 50 mins early :)

      Anyone get the other thing Sylvia dislikes besides the classical music?

    14. avatar image


      Nope ^ only classical music

    15. avatar image


      What was the thing about the truck in the listening? What did it collide with? I got everything else and I actually knew the word for cathedral 🙏🏼🙏🏼😂 over all it was a very nice paper

    16. avatar image


      Oh yeah I only got one thing Sylvie liked haha

    17. avatar image


      Une arbre (tree) and I think it was they hate waking up early but I'm not sure

    18. avatar image


      yeah it was a tree and waking up early

    19. avatar image


      it was also 4000 people, a lot of people found that hard, but in all fairness the listening and reading apaprt from maybe a few pieces of grammar was simple and the letter was very broad and open to interpretation nearly all of the content for both the postcard and the letter have been on previous exam papers so over all I believe that the test was very fair

      In the robbery one, why did the guy say they chose his house? I mean I said that it was lit up you can see it alll around and there arent many houses. What was it really?

    21. avatar image


      Yeah Sylvia didn't like walking up early and classical music where was the place she lived😂

    22. avatar image


      a farm i think?

    23. avatar image


      Yeah I got on a farm as well ^

    24. avatar image


      I got 4000 people! couldn't get the collision and the truck one. overall It was a fair paper

    25. avatar image


      Loads of my answers were not on the line as I scribbled out stuff! Will I loose marks if they are being collected online?? I thought the paper was fine I made some annoying mistakes though!! :)

    26. avatar image


      Yeah you will because the computer won't pick it up

    27. avatar image


      will the French be marked hard if people found it too easy?

    28. avatar image

      Noah Thomas

      Like business? I don't know :)

    29. avatar image


      It can't really be marked too hard on the listening and reading comprehensions. All we had was what was given to us, the answers were in the piece so if it's right it's right. The written might be marked slightly harder than before but they can't change the marking scheme. It shouldn't be too bad.

    30. avatar image


      it cant be docked if you don't write on the line

    31. avatar image

      Anybody get the second answer on what's being opened ? I think a tourist office was being opened but what were they going to do? Also for all those why are worrying about not writing on lines or cramming in the answers like I did, you won't we marked down. The device scans everything.

    61. avatar image
