    I've just been doing past papers but I think I need to work the most on listening, so I will probably do those tomorrow

    In class we went on the AQA website and looked at the spec, they have all the words you ever need to know there... We had to make flash cards for all the words we didn't know which took ages but now feel prepared!!

    :woo: Genuinely didn't know there was a vocab list on the bottom of the spec! I've read the top bit (to check the percentages of each exam, etc) but have never read to the bottom! You're a life saver, cheers!

    Same here. I would be really confident for Spanish, however I'm convinced that AQA are going to make the papers harder this year to try and combat grade inflation. The grade boundaries are usually really low for Spanish.

    Yes I agree. I did AQA French on Monday and whilst I didn't find it particularly hard, it was certainly harder than previous years especially the listening. I'm expecting them to do the same with Spanish this Friday

    I'm sitting these exams on Friday and I'm not feeling confident about them at all. I struggle remembering the endings for my tenses and previous listening exercises in class have been disastrous; it seems Spaniards speak at ridiculously fast speeds but I know that it only seems exaggerated because I can't fully understand them. I've been revising tenses and vocab this week and listening to the radio. Even though I've only been listening to it for a few days I feel that it has helped, if only a little bit.
