    I split mine up to three.
    Essay+Translations i do first (65 marks), should take me 1hr 15mins
    Reading should take me 30 mins
    Listening should take me 45 mins (i'm a little slow with listenings).

    So do you do essay or translations first? Do you find this works better?

    I usually look at the essay titles first to give my brain time to think about how to answer it. Then I do the translation and then the rest of the paper in order.

    Try use some idiomatic phrases to express opinion like d'après moi, quant à moi and stuff like that, maybe a si clause if it fits the essay title and question, and some subjunctive trigger phrases are always good, or using laquelle duquel auxquelles etc I normally plan the essay first, do the translations then do the paper, check my translations and then write my essay then check it all again if I have time

    Good luck for everyone. Try translating:

    1. Looking at the wider picture, it would make no difference if the government were to impose such measures
    1. In an attempt to fight against the growing problem of global warming, the government ought to reinforce necessary measures

    It really doesn't matter. They chose at random, could you whatever. The listening and reading will cover everything anyway

    any last minute revision tips? Been trying to revise for ages but i'm still struggling so much with my accuracy and grammar. Do you think for the essays if I just had a lot of content could I still do reasonably ok in it? I'm only aiming for a C anyway because I find French so difficult

    What do people think the essays could be on?? Themes or success, Originality?
    Individualism is the same as originality right?
