Other things you can do to improve is use direct, indirect, and demonstrative pronouns, as well as 'Y' and 'EN'. https://www.frenchtoday.com/blog/how...n-en-in-french
But overall if you use the tenses you've already listed you should be fine. Hope this helps!

For GCSE you need to know the Imperfect (eg je regardais) and the Perfect, also known as the passé composé (eg j'ai regardé) as well as the Present, the Future (both forms: aller + infinitive - je vais regarder - and the simple future, eg: je regarderai). and the Conditional of common verbs used in that mood (basically vouloir and aimer). You also need to be able to use the Imperative (eg: regardez! regardons! regarde!) and the present participle (en regardant), as well as the infinitive, of course.
You need to recognise and understand the Pluperfect (j'avais regardé = I had seen) and the Passive Voice in the present tense (La fête est organisée par l'école).
And as far as I know after over 30 years' teaching French, there is no such thing as the "Future conditional"...
Make sure you know all the tenses on the specification before you start learning things like the subjunctive!
