    In my mocks, I got a C in listening and reading (both) in Spanish. This is bizarre and has surprised me as I got an A/A* in speaking and A* in writing. I need help! Tips, advice, support! Thanks!

    Flashcards are a huge help when trying to learn vocabulary. I found them very useful.

    OK I'll try this...what do I put on the flashcards though since topics in reading/listening exams change every year?

    Don't worry about it too much, you still have quite a lot of time to improve! If it makes you feel any better I got Ds in my Spanish mock exams but ended up with an A* at the end and now doing Spanish at A-level

    What did you struggle with? Did you just not understand the vocab or was it more to do with vocab? I would really recommend Memrise which is a site that helps with vocab learning. You can either use the site's own Spanish course or you can search for your exam board and everything on the spec (vocab wise) should be there.

    Good luck!

    Thank you for replying. I think I struggle with understanding the vocab more than anything (this might be due to not actually learning most of the vocab in school or/and independently). I will definitely check out memrise.
