    Exam board is AQA, 60% of our grade is controlled assessment (writing and speaking) which I'm not worried about but how do you actually revise for Reading and Listening, is it just past papers and learning the vocab/tenses?

    Personally I think past papers are the best ways for both, strictly mark them with mark scheme and you will get a better idea. Even for tenses, Try writing them out on flashcards with examples eg with ER/IR/RE in the present tense. Go through textbooks for questions on texts for even more! Hope I helped! (Currently studying GCSE French and Spanish in NI!) Maybe use quizlet for quizes as well!

    Past papers, and lots of them! I was getting Cs in French in November before my GCSE's, but after a lot of past papers my grades went up to A*. I lacked so much basic French knowledge (I didn't even know how to conjugate the present tense!) but still managed to get an A* in my final exam, all thanks to past papers :P

    Memrise. Lots of memrise. I did a few past papers, but loads and loads of memrise (a couple of hours per night) and I got full UMS in my French exams, and nearly full UMS in my German exams. Just practice on memrise and you will remember it
