    I'm predicted an A* for French GCSE and I'm on target, but my lowest marks come from my listening tests which I want to consolidate so I have a solid A*, as compared to a wavering A* because I intend to do A-Level French too.
    Any tips on how to improve?

    Do every past paper you can find, then highlight any vocab you don't know if possible. Try to identify little tricks that the exam board like to use to trick people. Listen to french radio, french music, watch tv shows you like in the french dub etc. Just do a little and often and your french listening skills should improve.

    It could be English films with the language setting of French; if you want to learn some new words, you could also put the subtitles in English and work out what some words mean.

    Hi, I am also doing French, I find that doing past papers doesn't really help alot.
    So what I decided to do was write down the words that I didn't understand and then and learn them every night.Hope it helps.
    I also watch some basic French cartoons you can search on youtube and then note down the words I don't know with a dictionary or google translate by my side.
