Trottingtons blog: French exams
I am currently practicing for my francais speaking assessment at the end of February. Which is a drag, because trying to create, learn, and memorise a load of french is a boring as blehh.
Also, as you probably all know, GCSE's are changing at the end of the year back to the old system of one exam at the end of the year rather than there being projects, like my speaking assessment, that contribute to the grade I get at the end of the year.
I am not going to go into the politics of if its easier or not...

I have a better idea.
Lets take the French exam for example...
You need to know how to write it, speak it, listen and understand it, and read it. All which is a bit of a hassle. How on earth are you meant to fit all of that into one exam?
Exams cost money to enter, so wouldn't it be better to take the whole class over to France itself, and give them all £250 (I don't have a Euro's key?) and a tracking device.
The people who get back to England the quickest? Get A*'s.
The one's that don't make it back at all? Get U's.
Works perfectly I think.
You have to read the signs to find your way to a train station or whatever and buy food.
You need to listen and speak to the French person about directions.
And you might need to write a letter back home when the police find you abandoned on the streets because you have absolutely no idea about french!?
I'd rather put on my C.V
"Made it back to England from the south of France in 26 hours with £250 all by my own when I was 16 years old."
