    Anyone know how to get an A* on a french speaking controlled assessment.
    The maximum time I can speak for is 6 minutes and the topic is school life.
    The questions I will be asked are:
    1. Describe your school
    2. What are you favorite and worst subjects?
    3.What do you wear to school?
    4. Talk about your future plans?
    5.Describe a school trip you have been on?
    6. Compare a your school to a french school?
    7. What is your daily routine?

    hi ur controlled assesment is the same as mine i am too looking for help lol

    - Memorise all your responces and give yourself time to learn it
    - Include lots of opinions and justify them, don't start all your sentences with the same phrase.
    - Ask a few questions to show you acknowledge it is a conversation, but don't just say et toi? Ask something interesting, this will also mean you will get to speak less.
    - Focus on your pronunciation and the fluency of your conversation, don't make it sound forced and unnatural
    - If you mess up, ask to start again, talk slowly so you don't stutter as you will lose marks
    - Finally, be original and make sure thay what you write is crazy and different to make you stand out. Oh and be confident, if you mess up you will get a chance to redo but it will be a different question do don't take that risk
    Good luck!
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
