    My French speaking exam is on this Thursday and I have started to memorise my piece. Since I'm doing Ed-excel I must also prepare for some follow up questions. I have recorded myself speaking and I ended up finishing my piece within 1 minute 30 seconds, and I am really worried because I have heard that marks are deducted if you don't finish it between 4-6 minutes. Any tips or ideas would be helpful, thanks anyway.

    I believe I'm doing AQA and have my last french speaking on Friday so I suppose I can still offer you advice! You should find out online whether it needs to be between 4-6 minutes or not. But my tip for memorising it is repeat a few words/line until it gets stuck in your head, read the next few words, repeat, repeat, repeat until you know it off by heart, there's no easy way of memorising French.

    I just checked online and the piece can be off a maximum of 3 minutes, and then follow up questions would be asked by the teacher. Therefore the total piece+questions answered must be between 4-6 minutes or else you lose marks. And thanks, I've been trying that so far
