    How do you guys revise for the oral? Our teachers say you're not allowed to learn stuff off by heart, but there must be something more than just going over and over the literature stuff

    Spanish is pretty much the only exam I'm feeling confident about getting an A or A* in! My oral is the 12th of May so I still have a while to revise for it - doing La Casa de Bernarda Alba and Almodovar (Volver and Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios). The oral seems to be going well, getting A* in my weekly oral mocks, I think I'm more worried about the translations as I know it is fairly easy to lose marks on that. Anyone else worried about that?

    Same here with the only exam I'm confident for bar translation! I'm doing La Casa d Bernarda Alba too! My oral is April 29th though... Translation is stressful as it often not the topic specific vocab I worry about but the 'filler' words if that makes sense!?

    Good luck! That's so early - I'm sure it will be fine! Yeah, I totally get that, or like I will forget a specific grammatical structure, or where the personal 'a' goes or something like that! Which do you find easier? English-Spanish or Spanish-English?

    I find Spanish-English easier as you don't have to worry as much about grammar/structures etc. you?

    Oh you also do French! Wow, that's great, I certainly could not have done both! Good luck with that though - and yeah me too, although it really does depend on what they give us to translate, I'm guessing it will be something from current events - hopefully not too complicated in terms of vocab!

    Well, not AS prepared as I feel for the Almodovar section, but I will probably re-read the play and then re-watch it, just so I can remember some of the things I forgot since December! Are you?

    We do too! Except we finished Casa really early and started AS revision as our teachers are making us retake (even though I got an A - it's just to boost my chances of getting an A* overall) but we have gone a lot more in depth for Almodovar so I definitely feel more confident on that!
