Not sure if it's the same across all exan boards, but we were with Edexcel and we were not allowed any que cards. We were however given a sort of guidance sheet (provided by Edexcel) on which we could write no more than 30/40 single words/short phrasea on. (Each word in the phrase is counted as one of the 30 words). We were also allowed a maximum of 5 drawings with no words. Personally, although I wrote down 30 words, I found that there was literally no time to even look at the sheet for help as by the time you look, it creates a pause and on tape it doesn't sound as fluent. Obviously it's good to have the words thete though as a backup! But yeah, you'd rather make up a simple but accurate sentence in German on the spot rather than slightly pausing to look at the sheet and not sounding as fluent.

All the best for your assessment - I'm sure you'll do well!

You can pick up to 40 words on a cue card. If you include verbs then you can't conjugate them, i.e. you need to put in the infinitive (e.g. to look) rather than the word you want looked/looking etc.
