I have done one writing and one speaking, and on Tuesday I am doing another writing exam. Then we are having 3 weeks planning for a speaking (did the topic a while ago). How about you?

Wow in my school we've already finished all our writings and we've done one speaking, so we've got one more speaking to go, which we're gonna do after Easter

Completed a speaking and writing CA last year in Y10 (scraped A*s for both of them) and also completed a speaking exam this year (now we're preparing for the last writing CA).

We were told that due to changes in the speaking mark scheme, all of the speaking exams had to be remarked via the recordings and that dropped me from borderline A/A* to a borderline B/A (not quite sure why this applied to us since there should've been a warning).

In terms of the 2015 listening and reading exams I don't think I'll do too well but my only hope is using the CGP Vocab Tester Book with the DVD with recordings, as well as past papers.

I've finished all my controlled assessments, and it's at an A* however my reading/listening is usually at B-D's. Any advice on those?

Past papers are always good for reading, and what we're doing at the moment is after we've done the paper, going through any vocab we don't know and having a second test on that, which is something you can do at home. There will be a certain number of words you'll see crop up a lot, and learning these will help your understanding

I sat the AQA German GCSE last year and must say the listening was hard but I somehow managed to get a B in it(this I don't know how)

Anyway the key is to learn lots of vocab because without them you will not understand. I also passed my reading exam(was shocked because previously to the real exam I was not confident)

Edit: Excuse the username.

I got a B for the listening, a C for the reading, a C overall for both speaking exams, and a B overall for my writing controlled assessments.

So my overall grade was a high C(3 marks off a B)

I got a remark but my grade never changed.

It REALLY helps revising your verbs. They're really important. Chances are, if you don't know the verb - you won't know the sentence.
German isn't really much of a hard topic to revise for as long as you know the main keywords in each section you should be fine. But those verbs are the difference from a C to an A*. Not even lying. :-/
