    I also have OCR French tomorrow morning. I've done listening and reading papers and I'm averaging around 28/40 :L first 3 questions are easy but the last two I almost impossible. Suppose there is not much we can do about now unless you are fluent in French.

    That is very true ; it's relatively easy to do the first 3 questions , I've have just done the 2014 ocr papers and you just need basic french vocabulary

    A lot of past papers have been about people's jobs and what they think of them, so I suppose we could try learning vocabulary for different areas of employment in French? idk, the exams in 12 hours lol

    I'm doing the Edexcel papers tomorrow and I'd recommend just going over tenses and any key phrases. What one are you most worried about? I'm dreading the listening- can never understand anything they're saying

    I do French edexcel aswell!! I think past papers and going over vocab really helps. Tip for listening is that when they give you 5 minutes to go through the paper see if you can identify the words in French so this helps you choose an answer. Hope that makes sense and good luck

    I'm doing WJEC French, the papers seem a lot easier in comparison to AQA and OCR, Its out of 40 and I usually average around 35 on a Higher paper which is just above the boundary for A*. I'm worried due to the sound quality of WJEC's listening material.. it always seems muffly and hard to understand the words being said. (Not due to accent)

    Just do as much vocab as possible and try and listen to the past listening exercises and listen to any other french stuff, even some music or something to get you in the mindset and listening to the words. It always takes a little while to adjust to hearing another language, so if you try to adjust before the exam, even half an hour or so, you should find it easier.

    Oh and before listening, try and write out translations for any of the written words you know, it'll make it easier if you hear those words being said because you won't have to translate and listen simultaneously.
