    So basically, I am studying French for gcse and it is going pretty good. However, I find it very difficult to revise for the exams as the questions could be based on anything and everything.! I have tried Duolingo which is great but there is only so much it can help you with in gcse. I have become better and consistent in French reading papers (A or A*) but I am finding listening papers almost a nightmare. I am doing the Wjec board which is alright. ( Thank God I'm not doing the Edexcel board).

    Any suggestions on how to revise and get an A*in French gcse?

    BTW, I'm planning to take French A levels next year. with maths biology and chemistry.

    What's wrong with the Edexcel exam board? I'm doing Edexcel French and have no issue with the exam board, it's definitely much easier than AQA. I'm happy to answer any questions you have on it
