How did you find the AQA reading paper today?

Showing 1 to 6 of 6

I'm quite surprised at how they made the listening and reading paper much more challenging this year!

There were three writing questions. I hope they lower the grade boundaries though or hardly anyone will get As or A*s!

I thought that the reading exam was much harder than any past papers, especially because there was 3 writing questions.

I actually found the reading exam okay today. I mean Monday's listening exam was horrific and I'm certain I failed but today's exam wasn't too bad. I found that with the writing questions you just had to read the text first and translate it as you go and then read the questions. The horse question was horrible though, basically didn't understand a single word. But overall... I'm hoping I did well.

All my friends found it really difficult though so hopefully I haven't got all of them wrong because I translated it wrong :P

But on the bright side...

So many writing questions, this year it was tres difficile! :P (Excuse the missing accent in tres!) 

I think the boundaries will be a little lower, but remember, it's 60% coursework, so as long as you did ok in the controlled assessments, you should be ok, hopefully! (:
