    You do a comparative essay (essentially the writing exam from GCSE) between the book and film on a set question, your teacher will almost certainly prep you for it.

    On WJEC (the exam board I do) it's as follows:

    1.) Long Exam Paper taken in exam season on listening, Reading and Translation (2hrs30min)

    2.) Speaking Exam taken in the early summer term just after Easter based on various question and stimuli that we have been practicing with our French Assistants 1 to 1. (The Speaking generally should last for about 30min.)

    3.) The Comparative Essay between the book and film that is also done in Exam Season. (I believe the time you get is 1hr30min, but I'm not entirely sure.)

    Obviously, that's based on my exam board so if you do a different one the exam layout could be different, if you know your exam board just check the specification online.
