GCSE speaking is a memory test, you don't even need to know French to do well in that-just read your script a million times.
for the other exams-past papers, reading newspaper articles in French, listen to French radio-it all helps

I have mocks in December as well. With French speaking it’s key to clearly pronounce the words. Pronunciation may bring your marks up. Content is key too but if you sound confident it might sounds better. With revising it just repeat repeat and memerise. Sticking post it notes around with French vocab and grammar might help 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

It's really not that difficult once you learn the vocab.

The speaking exams are literally memorising exams. Practise aloud. Record yourself. Listen to FRANCE 24 on Youtube or something, and mimic the accent.

The same goes for writing exams; you only need to memorise what you want to write and re-write it clearly and concisely in the exam. Having a good structure that naturally leads from one paragraph to another is helpful, so that you know where you are going following each sentence.

Reading exams test your ability to pick out key words and understand the context of what it's trying to tell you. If you revise your vocab well and know the tenses, this should be a breeze. Test yourself on vocab daily.

Listening exams are all about understanding the accent and being able to interpret what the audio is talking about. Again, listening to french media can help you pick up how they say certain things.

All I can say is practise. And be enthusiastic about wanting to learn, so that you can earn that high grade!

Good Luck!
