Someone encouraged me to do something like this, so I shall see what you think.
Anyways, in around 0 days 9 hours 58 minutes you shall be starting the French Exam (no pressure).
For some of you, you may be as calm as hell, but for others it may be nerve-wracking.Spoiler:Anyways, I shall be doing the Higher papers and I thought I'd share a few tips on what I'm doing to help myself and you can share yours as well.ShowPersonally, I am very calm despite the fact I am absoloutely Bad at french
For both of the Exams I shall have a bottle of water for each exam. It helps me remain calm and keeps me confident throughout the exam.
This is most likely my weaker side as I find they speak rather fast for the questions but slow for the examples
-In the First 5 minutes, I write words all over the page that I can think I'd associate with that topic, this helps my mind to not do as much puzzling as to what a word may mean.
-I look out for keywords such as "Unfortunately" or "however" or "but" most of these terms will contradict or have a different effect from what was just said.
-Listen to the tone of their voice: In a few past papers, the tone of their voice has really helped me to work out the answer (Especially in the positive/negative questions).
-Always put something: Majority of the french paper is multiple choice, so put a decent answer.
-Use common sense: some questions require just a little.
-Once the exam actually starts, don't turn the paper at a snail's pace :/
RAPIDLY, get going with the first couple of questions, because as the texts get longer you will need time to decipher the meaning.
-If you do not understand a word, look at the sentence before it and make a good guess, otherwise if it is not related to the text move on.
-Put something in all the questions.
-Stay calm and finish 5 minutes early.
Anyway I'm going to bed now and I suggest you do so, too; ensuring you get a good night's sleep. Have a healthy breakfast and drink alot.
Good Luck everyone!
