For some reason, I've left the majority of my revision for french till 2 days before the exam. I've done quite a few past papers in class and at home and have consistently got A*s in them, but I just haven't bothered sitting down and properly learning some vocab. That's today and tomorrow's job, I've decided. Learning 16 pages of vocab in 2 days xD I've already done 6 and tested myself in the last hour and a half, so it's going well so far. Join me fellow crammers! xD

social problems
celebrations/religious celebrations
tourism/holidays
jobs

would really help, thanks

OMG this is exactly me, although I think you only need to sort of know the vocab, not know how to spell it, there's no time to learnt he spellings for everything!

AQA - I really want to score highly on these papers - especially reading. I've got 91% on my CA and so if I get a good reading grade it doesn't really matter about listening - I got a C on my mock listening but an A overall.

Yeah, I'm just learning definitions of words xD I find I can work things out when they're in context, but I just want to be sure. Better safe than sorry, right? xD

Sounds like a plan. How are you revising?
Our school hasn't told us our CA grades, which is so incredibly infuriating.

Seriously? That's unfair.
+I've done all the recent past papers - we were given a huge booklet with all of the recent years' papers in. My grades have fluctuated hugely between a D-A in listening and in reading I'm hitting high B/A.

The problem I'm finding is doing tests I've already done - I don't feel that always gives me the best indication of my grade.

Yeah, it's really annoying :/
God, I hate listening :/ But reading is okay xD
Yeah, I know what you mean. I always wonder if my answers are just me remembering what I'd answered previously xD

Yeah :/ French isn't too bad though, I wouldn't mind if it was hard like last year's with low grade boundaries.

If by that you mean English lit, then yes. (I am only doing cie for English and French). I am doing the Tempest, Stories of Ourselves and Hardy poems. You? For me, the stories need the most revision.

Yeah! xD Last year's listening grade boundaries were 26/40. And getting 28/40 or more meant you got 100UMS! Crazy right? xD

Hell yeah for cramming! The lowest I've ever gotten is an A for listening and that was once so I'm hoping that my guessing skills don't let me down now xD
