Find your course on Memrise and just learn the vocab. That will cover you for the reading and listening.
If you're struggling to get past the French accent, then watch films in French, or listen music. You can do this with English subtitles, as you're only doing it to get used to the accent.

Flashcards are great for learning vocab French to English. However, to make sure you know them English to French (for the writing exam), I'd just rewrite the words in French again and again until I know I've got that spelling down. For speaking, it's a good idea to maybe get your teacher to record them speaking your transcript for you to then listen to so to really nail the pronunciation. And for listening, all I can really say is practice makes prefect. Listen to French music and try and understand what they're saying, watch French movies without subtitles, or YouTube videos in French. Just make sure you're listening to French 24/7, really just surround yourself with it. Good luck!
Thank youuuu!!😅

For speaking, I would say get as much practice as possible. Talk to yourself, a pet, your mum, anyone. You could maybe make a sheet with everything you need to know for a topic as a cheat sheet.
For writing I would try and write your notes from French lessons in French to practice it. You can also get your teacher to give you practice questions

Ohh yeah my teacher told me about memrise thanks for reminding me & i’d say my french accent is actually better than the actual vocab and grammer itself but it would help me for the listening paper

I would work on the vocab then. It's good to have a nice French accent, but it's useless unless you know the words to say in the vocab
