Test tomorrow and I have just found out about a new list of words to revise. About 2 pages long. Any advice?

Sorry I'm confused by that.

Don't try to learn two pages of new vocab out of context the night before an exam! Not sensible in the slightest.

So you are implying I should leave it?

Oh, I'm doing the exact same work. I'd recommend looking at the words in French and covering the translation for each word and testing yourself on the translation this way - and vice-versa English to French if needs be. If you get any words wrong after testing yourself the first time, test them again and again until you know them.

Yes. You shouldn't really learn vocab out of context anyway, because it doesn't stick very well. I think if you try to learn a list of words like this in so very little time you could end up confusing yourself about other words you can only just remember - i.e. you'd end up in a worse position than before.

You could try narrowing down the list to maybe 20 or so of the ones you think are most important/useful, but I would personally accept it was too late now to do something like learn new vocab and use the time to practice what I did know.

This is just my opinion, but I don't think it usually matters if the words are out of context when you revise them before the test - if you recognise them during the test they will be more helpful than not revising them at all and knowing the words will help you gain more knowledge on the topic of what you read, etc.

Just memorise it; get some hours of sleep now so that you have energy and then wake up at about seven or so and chuck the vocab up into sections. Work through each section of the vocab bit by bit and perfect it until it's like second nature. Don't joke around with your academics, just memorise the vocab.
Thanks!
