    Try to learn as much vocab as possible for German. I used to get Ds in French and now I'm aiming for a high A because I've learnt all the vocab and my coursework have improved.

    What is your writing/speaking (coursework) grades like?

    Well we don't do writing coursework and my speaking coursework isn't that great because only 1/3 of it is coursework… but I can get them to B/A level

    Im doing french and just realised even though my 4 courseworks are A*/ full marks, i will still only go into the exam with a solid D. Eurgh. Anyway what are you using to revise German?? Use the 'memrise' site and i suggest you also watch German youtubers! It helps you pick up words really fast and get used to how fast they speak!

    http://www.memrise.com/ use this site! Sign up and go to 'courses' and search your exam board & 'German GCSE' and they should have the vocab for your spec - it's great as it gives different ways of learning & it's much better than just staring at a textbook
