    Hi, I am sitting both AS and A2 AQA French exams in June! For A2 I am doing a director (Les Choristes) as the essay question and I was wondering if anyone had any predictions for the essay questions on both A2 and AS exams?

    Also if you have any revision methods and exam tips for French I would be very grateful!😊

    Here's something that has really helped me revise for the oral exam (This is for A2 French)!
    http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/langu...tent/a2-topics
    This is everything they can base the cards/questions around. So the cards are based around the subject topics like "To which culture should immigrants show loyalty?", there'd be one opinion saying "the culture of the welcoming country" and then the other opinion would say "They should be loyal to their own culture".

    Hope this helps, it helps me

    Hey i'm doing the same! 2 weeks today is the AS Exam!!!!!! Help!!! I'm doing Stromae and Moliere for the Cultural topics and I have no idea how to write an essay on them as i'm a private candidate and don't have a teacher! So scared for these exams too, but hopefully they're not too hard as they're the last exams of this spec!
    Hope revisions going well for you!

    I can't believe the AS exam is in 2 weeks!😱 Do you have any essay predictions? I think maybe music but I'm really not sure!

    A2 essays are so difficult but I find that if you plan before you start then it helps you with your ideas😊 Hope your revision is going well too!

    I know i'd be so happy if smoking came up!! Aw i'm absolutely terrible, I haven't done any work since Saturday and that was only half an essay!!Oh no, I always leave revision last minute and I need these exams to get into Uni! I'm my ow worst enemy.

    I think it is. pr 13. I've chosen dramatist and musician for my cultural topics so I hope the questions are nice!
    I know me too! Like I was terrified when I went into my speaking exam because I had no practise being a private student, and I came out feeling like I let myself down, I knew I could've done better but exams don't always let you show what you're capable of doing! So annoying!!

    I'm exactly the same!😂 I always leave it to the last minute but I promised myself this year I would revise earlier! For essay Q14 I think it will be something about themes if that helps?😊

    Awh I was so disappointed in myself after my speaking exam! It makes it worse when you know you could have done so so much better😥 My teacher was so helpful though and told me to forget about it and focus on the exams, we can only do our best!😊

    Haha I never learn!! Ooh yeah that's great thanks!! I'll be doing either Q13 or 14.

    Yeah I know the feeling, my exam officer just told me not to overanalyse it but that's easier said than done!!
    Exactly, I hope so!! Praying that they don't make it too hard

    Am I the only one who's only studied one cultural topic in depth?

    We did Francois Ozon (a director) with our teacher all year, then we had to self study another topic just for the speaking exam
