    it is literally you, your teacher and the recorder for 5 minutes. The teacher will watch you for the entire duration. You either know it, or you don't.

    Don't you have a list of 30 words and a section for drawings? Use them as triggers and you'll be fine

    No way to cheat on a speaking. Have fun.

    I've done about 6 and what happens is that you're in a room with a teacher, and then she asks you questions while recording you speak. Cheating is impossible.

    Looks like you're going to need to kill yourself revising again. There is no other way. The only other thing you can do is feign illness on the day, delay it for like a week or so and then you'll have enough time to prepare sufficiently.

    You said to begin that the best you could do was a U but then go on to say last time you got an A*. If you can get an 'A*', I think you are more than capable this time.

    i think although i did improvise it, i think i sounded authentically french so i scored really highly on the accent and intonation part and also that set me up for a good language use mark but i call all of this a fluke... do not attempt to do what i did, your best hope of getting A/A* is to learn it before hand

    Yeah, that's what I do I've already done of my speakings, just looking for tips for A-Level. All improvisation at AS, terrifying D: You don't even get the questions beforehand, they literally just ask you random questions D:

    Yeah xD I figured that I might as well. I don't think I'll actually use it in any of my uni applications though xD
    For A2, I'm hoping to get A*AA or A*AAA (maths, chemistry, physics and biology). I know it's a bit ambitious, but I'd just love to get at least one A* xD I think I'm either going for Natural Sciences, Chemistry or Medicine. How about you?
