    I hope mock went OK for you?
    They were ok. I know there will be a few results I'm not happy with, but hopefully that will give me a bit more motivation!

    Before Christmas! :eek: Thank god that wasn't the case for me - only had a vague notion about my choices then.
    Is theatre studies like drama? (I have no clue) high five for english lit though!
    :five:
    Loads of people I know have changed their choices - some drastically (a few people have changed from all sciences to all arts/humantities :eek:) but I guess that's the school's problem for making us choose so soon.

    Yes, just another name for it really. I think some call it drama and theatre studies, so yeah.

    Is anyone else feeling a bit swamped with coursework/controlled assesment? I swear I've never had to do this much throughout the entirety of year 10, and now it's all piling up when I'm supposed to be revising for mocks! :eek:

    Almost feel like taking back my options now and changing them drastically - which is silly of me as I'm certain on my choices. Just getting cold feet I guess.

    Hey guys, new to this thread. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for French listening on the higher tier? I have just been put onto the higher tier and I could barely understand what the heck these people were saying! :rolleyes:

    I find coursework so boring and tedious - I'd probably have more revision done if it wasn't for that...
    It's not like I'm not interested, I just feel it gets repetitive after a while.

    I don't do French anymore but with listenings...

    - Before: If you know what topic(s) the listening will/might be on look at vocab lists and try to learn some new vocabulary. This will help you understand some of... "what the heck these people are saying". :mmm:

    - During: Before you start always take the time to look at the Qs.
    + I think you get two times to listen, right? :confused: If you do... I listen and try to fill in what I can understand during the first half. Then the second play is me confirming what I put and filling in the rest. Or... You could listen and not write during the first playing (mainly listening) and then fill in everything next. I think the latter of the two is a little risky tbh.

    ... AND FINALLY... Don't try to translate stuff word by word/literally. Practise listening and translating whole sections. (:

    Hope this helps!

    Okay, thanks
    To be honest I was going to learn the vocab anyway, and I already know the meanings a lot of common words, but it's just actually understanding what they are saying because they talk fast. Also the exam is usually made difficult using negatives/mentioning all the different options, and its hard to work out which is the correct one. That is mainly what throws me off, so I want to somehow practice listening and translating what it is they're actually saying, rather than just what things they mention (Not really sure how to do this though) .

    Thanks for the advice though, the tips are handy!

    One more French and one more German, quite a lot of drama, a couple of pages to finish off food and nutrition, I think. The latter two are really big pieces, though (I think the food one is like 40%), and the time we've been given to complete them in is almost up.
