Anyone doing AQA GCSE german, or any GCSE exam board for that matter??
I have my exam at the start of June and just wondered how to revise, useful sites etc?
I find learning a little bit of vocab quite pointless this late into the year..tell me what you guys think! Thanks

In my opinion it's never too late to cram vocab - I had my As german exam last week and was still learning new vocab the night before

On the exam board website you should find a list of the vocab you are expected to know. I then used the website Quizlet make flashcards of all the words and spent at least an hour a day in the run up to the exam learning the vocab. Also do as many past papers as you can and once you've marked them look through the examiner's report and transcript so you know exactly where you went wrong.
I got A*s last year in French and German ( Edexcel) so hopefully this will work for you too

I'm not doing the AQA German GCSE exam, but I am taking the edexcel exam for German next Wednesday. If you're stuck with learning vocab, I recommend using Memrise - it's a really useful way to practice and learn new words, and is a lot more fun to do than simply sitting and reading a long list of vocab. Good luck!!
