    We have had our mocks ( DEC 2017) and for Spanish we used the AQA Listening 2nd set specimen paper. Students found them extremely hard. Has anyone had any feedback from students. If this is how the real paper is going to be next summer, it will discourage students from studying languages. We need to feedback to the board, if you feel the same.

    Hi I agree and would add that the French exams are no easier. We used them for the mock and pupils were left shocked at what to my mind is closer to AS level

    Hi. I think the AQA 2nd set Listening papers French are ridiculously hard. The reading was incredibly hard too. Just used for mocks. The real papers will have been written by now so am just hoping the thresholds will be v low. No way to encourage kids to take GCSE let alone A level.

    Dunno whether it's me being a bit dim but there doesn't appear to be a teacher's booklet for the second set French and German papers.
