I found out at a meeting today that early next week the examiners from AQA will be setting the grade boudaries for GCSE listening & reading for the various languages they examine. We were also told today that they had only received one complaint about the level of difficulty of these exams. If you have any concerns there is still time to raise them with AQA. You can do this via their website - sorry I can't be more specific. I'm hoping a colleague from another school who was also at the meeting might be able to give more details. However I reckon that a message with the subject "FAO GCSE Modern Foreign French (etc) examiners" should get through.
