Just thought I'd make a thread

Anyone been revising?? I've been revising all day, just hoping we won't get a hard one.. But judging from past papers I have the easiest board and should do good.. When I did past papers I got around 90%..
Any tips??

btw my exam board is WJEC

I'm doing Spanish with AQA. We've done loads of practice listening in class and I've got A*s in most of those so I'm less worried about the listening, there isn't much we can really do to revise for them. For the reading I'm just going to look over vocabulary but my reading is on the same day as the writing (Thursday) so everything I revise for the writing will be relevant to the reading as well. For the writing, the stuff that comes up for me is pretty similar to my oral topics and I can still remember the oral answers I learnt so most of the time I'll just write those down. Don't know if that's the case with WJEC but if it is I'd recommend looking over your orals! I've been doing more English lit revision today because I've done so much Spanish revision in class I'm feeling more confident about that. Good Luck

We didn't really have much time to do practise papers.. Luckily, we're not doing writing but we did coursework in which I got an A*.. That's not too bad then but I think I'd be worried about getting things wrong in the writing exam.. Ohh haha I don't do English lit yet, we do English language first and then we do English lit the next year.. I'm only in year 10 btw.. Good Luck to you aswell

I've been on Edexcel. I've got A*s on all the past papers I've done, so I should be OK.

Scared out of my brains.
In my mock in Jan I got A*s in reading, writing and speaking but I got a C in my listening, bringing my grade down from an A* to an A.

How an EARTH am I meant to revise for listening!?
Watching "mi vida loca" on BBC languages is getting tiresome.

Just make sure your familiar with vocab that comes up a lot and know opinion words. If you can find any, look over transcripts of previous listening's so you know what's likely to come up. In the mock, the listening was my weakest point (I got a B in that and As in the other parts) but now listening is my strongest. We've done loads of practices in class which helps though.

Aaah, that's not too bad then.. Hmm, I tried BBC for listening aswell, didn't like it.. Did you already do your speaking?? What exam board are you doing by the way?? If you're doing AQA they have a listening test that you can actually do and I think it's good practise to do ( I did it even though I'm WJEC).
Good Luck

Ahh, you'll be fine
What year are you in now??
We are doing our Spanish GCSE a year early.. Well, I don't really :eek:I just learn vocabulary and I'll just guess stuff I won't know.. :cool:
I don't think listening is too hard, except where you have to translate a conversation (I'm really hoping I won't get one of those tommorow).
But if you want to, you can go on BBC bitesize which has listening activities, or you can go on AQA past papers and there are a few listening ones aswell.. What board are you doing btw??

Ahh, that's crap!! But you can still get an A if you get good marks in the other exams... You should've complained to the head of languages or something, I wouldn't let them put me on the foundation.. Our teacher put nearly everyone in the higher, even if they got Cs on them...
Good Luck anyways

I did french in year 10 and managed an A*
I'm now doing full course spanish after 6 months of teaching I have listening exam today :O

The best way to revise is learning vocab and doing past papers :cookie:

Well done.. I think it's easier learning another language if you already know one. Did you look at the site??
I had my test today by the way.. It went well, the test was the same as it was the previous years (but different content) and it wasn't too hard.. I found the listening harder aven though that was the one our teacher prepared us for.. I think I should still manage to get an A* looking at the grade boundaries from last year..

When's yours??
Thanks for the rep btw
