    I have forgotten all my grammar for French, but after doing past-papers, my vocab is strong enough to get me A/A*'s each time, and my coursework is (apparently) A*-worthy.
    I can't wait to get this exam done with because I don't enjoy French at all!

    The only thing I'm worried about is the listening test, sometimes I find the speakers too quick, but I guess with more practise I will get better at listening and writing simultaneously.

    One tip I have for listening!

    You're allowed 5 minutes before the starting of the recording. So translate as much as you can in listening, like the English words into French!

    And then you listen our for those words

    Considering you can't actually "revise" in a sense, because you have no idea what will come up on the test, apart from the certain modules which I presume your work have been split up into.

    Taking this into consideration, all I do when I revise, I just learn the key words and listen out for them on the test.

    When actually doing the test, make notes on the test for the first time you listen to it and the second time around actually put in your final answer. Also, when doing the test write down key words which you don't know and try and figure it out. If you can't, just guess!

    Hey, I'm doing AQA Spanish GCSE but although this isn't the thread I need some serious tips... due to my teacher's ridiculous 'harsh' marking I need literally 119/120 ums to guarantee A* and 89/120 ums for an A, but I want A*... seriously .. ! Any tips on reading/listening.. especially listening like on how to get full ums! I'm scared it may be the subject where I only get an A in, I would be pretty pissed off if that happens! Thanks in advance - Jatz
    Your work will be moderated anyway, so if there's some discrepancy it'll be accounted for.

    Write french words in your time at the beginning.

    Listen out for any of those words and then answer, don't stress over an answer the first time and let it ruin the other questions.

    Yeah, I guess people could try and Skype each other and practice? Although I can't do that
