    Hello,

    I've got my french iGCSE coming up in a week, as part of it there will be a 150 word essay towards the end.

    I'm pretty bad at french and have left revision rather late for someone who knows only basic vocab and tenses. I'm thinking I could write and learn general essays for maybe 5 topic areas in the hope I will be able to use them for one of the 3 options.

    I just wanted to know if you guys thought it was a good idea, and if so which topics I should go for?

    Thanks in advance

    Hey there.

    This is something most schools make students do for their exam. However, seeing that you don't know what could come up, I think learning essays for five topics would be quite a lot. I'm assuming you have other exams too? If so then this would be difficult to do. Nevertheless if you feel confident in doing so then go for it. It depends on if you can manage to learn that much.

    If you have a textbook for French then go through whichever topic you seem to understand more from and that way you'll remember them most easily than any other topics.

    Otherwise I would advise you to learn the sentence structures and simple connectives/adjectives/nouns and I'm sure you'll do well.

    Good Luck!
