    Nope, done nothing! Geography and Additional science is my top priority as they're both on the following day.

    But all I'm planning to do is go over keywords, and maybe do one paper tonight. ^^

    Same, they're both definitely more important to me too. What are you hoping for in French?

    For listening, it's more about strategy than actually translating every single word into English.
    In edexcel papers, there always a question where the speakers debate on choosing one out of 3 options (such as what kind of film to see), and the answer is always the one that they mention last in the convo. Weird huh?

    Readyish xD B3 I've been going over again because I'd forgotten what I'd learnt in the Humans and the Environment topic but apart from that, I think I'm ready xD
    I've got about another 5 or so case studies to learn for Geography, so I might start that now xD

    YES Have you tried recording yourself on your phone going over questions or paragraphs that you think are essential for the exam and then listening to it over and over again until it sticks, like listening to a song and learning the lyrics. You could also get someone else to ask you questions on the things written in your book.

    I hope this helps
    Good luck in your exam

    Honestly? No, I don't. I cant be bothered to revise it on top of everything else and also, I am unsure as to how it will help me personally. However, I think for the listening, maybe try listening to some simple conversations and answering questions and for the reading, just do a bunch of exercises from your textbook or online.

    Honestly? No, I don't. For the mocks, I just went in and took the tests for both of them.
    And did it work?

    We've done a LOT of past papers for French at school so I'm just hoping nothing out of the ordinary comes up for the actual exam and just go for it without cramming and stressing out too much.
