:O Yeah, it's scary to be honest :/ I'm also doing that GTA. What I do is just read through the past papers, looking at the questions, they tend to be the same just worded differently. Good Luck!

What date is your exam? I've mine on the 23rd April.

What also helps is watching stuff in French: you get to hear formulaic lines which you can then say

Watch French news - very useful to practice the pace!
Practice the cards! that's the best thing to do. Once you've done all the cards, make up some! E.g. for or against drugs and just formulate an argument.
When you're doing the speaking practice, make a ticklist e.g.
Subjunctive
Conditional
Si Clause
Imperfect
Comparative etc... and tick them off every time you use them. This helps to ensure you're including as many tenses as possible and complex sentence structures! Also it highlights things you're forgetting to include

You're welcome! I would also recommend making vocab cards, but it's no use making ones for easy words that you already know like la mode - fashion etc, really focus on those annoying words you can never remember! Put the ones you can't remember at the top of the pile and keep testing yourself
If you're having a day when you can't seem to focus, sometimes I'll put on a film in French with English subtitles or vice versa, it's great to pick up on new vocab and the subjunctive and stuff like that! Might be a good trick to try
