c'est un question tres epineusse. (it's a very thorny issue)
on a completement tort de penser que... (one is completely wrong to thing)
va te fair foutre (f*ck off)
Je n'ai en rien a foutre (i really don't care)
je suis de l'avis que (i am of the opinion that)
ni....ni (neither... nor)
d'un part, d'autre part/ d'un cote, d'autre cote (oh one hand, on the other hand)

these are the best i can think of on the top of my head...

Hello,
You can use alternatives for simple phrases that you already know, for example...
à mon avis (in my opinion) can be said as:
j'estime que (I consider that)
Je soutiens que (I argue/maintain that)
Je déclare sans retenue que (I state without reserve that)
Selon moi (in my opinion)
Il me semble que (it seems to me that)

Connectives:
En outre (furthermore)
De plus (furthermore)
Par ailleurs (moreover)
Cependant/pourtant (however)
Néanmoins (nevertheless)
Par contre (in contrast)
En revanche (on the other hand)

Hope this helps

Saaame! Anyway, you don't really revise for it because we don't know what's coming up in the listening and the reading.
However, you could read the vocab list at the end of each chapter.. (If you're doing Edexcel) and for the listening, what I find really helpful is to listen to the french radio or french vloggers on youtube, because it somehow trains your ear to listen to french because when you're used to listening actual french people talking so fast, you'll find the tracks of the exam so slow, so it will sound easier. X
+ just prepare in your mind the introductory sentences that you would like to use in the exam and some subjunctives (examiners love that)
Good luck for tomorrow. I'm sure you'll do fine. x
