I have horrible memories of my AS-level French mock oral, where I sat down with the sheet of info that I was meant to be preparing with in the preparation room... it was a tourist leaflet about Aberystwyth. I panicked because I had no idea how to pronounce Aberystwyth. The French wouldn't have been a problem, but Aberystywyth really threw me.
I sat down with my French teacher for the mock exam, stuttered a few words and burst into tears
I got an A in AS French and dropped the subject
it can't have been that bad then, you must have done really rather well!
