    my god those are amazing grades xD I even took 2 resits to get atleast 2 As in my speaking - it was so confusing because my teacher gave us the questions all in the wrong order but all worked out I think. I just hope i get an A haha, I'm assuming you're aiming for that A* do you know any words that often come up in the past papers and are quite important? that could potentially be useful haha
    Aw that's so annoying! but its good you got your A's! and yess, i really enjoy languages and are probably the only subjects i can do.. ! haha but im hoping to carry on spanish at uni level too & well depends on the topic, but i think for topics like holidays, usually weather phrases & activities like 'tomo el sol' and 'pasé mi tiempo en la playa' etc You could revise some activities like 'ir de compras' Often a lot of vocab for environment 'medio ambiente' and technology such as 'inundaciones' and 'incendios'

    luckily our teacher said they don't show up as resits as they are just CW, so that was a bonus haha. but thank you! yes I've noticed a lot of the recent past papers have been on technology, much appreciated

    Hiya! Who else is pumped and ready for the AQA GCSE Spanish exam on the 20th May? Apparently the AQA French Listening exam changed format to around 27 questions with longer speaking extracts... #daunting
    Anyway, lets get ready for the end of our GCSE Spanish careers!

    Here are some links to past papers: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/langu...d-mark-schemes

    Some of my preferred revision resources:
    http://www.memrise.com/course/70944/...se-spanish-ht/
    http://www.language-gym.com
    http://www.spanishrevision.co.uk/gcse/gcse_index.htm
    Thank you for all the resources! Kinda excited for tommo tbh!

    Here's some vocab games I made on Quizlet a couple months ago, designed specifically for Reading and Listening:

    Hope you find them useful x

    From what I remember I think I've got an A* in the Spanish controlled assessment, if I get an A in both reading and listening then would I still get an A* overall?

    It's today! 😁 I'm half freaking out, half going over some vocabulary. In all seriousness though, don't stress about the exam being too hard or going too fast. The exam, as it literally says on the specification, is designed to be part of your common knowledge; it won't ask you about Chinese dragons if it doesn't expect you to know about them. As for the listening, for P+N listen for key words like "pero o aunque" because that is a clear indicator there's going to be a contrasting opinion e.g. P+N. If the exam speech is faster, just pick out the key words and don't bother righting them down until that extract has finished, then furiously scribble little notes. Listen again, check your notes and confirm your answer. You're all going to do so well, being on this thread is a clear indication that you want to do amazingly ¡Finalmente, mis amigos, buena suerte para hoy!
