    Hi! Using all of those tenses is fine, and you should do well if you can write in them with correct grammar. Consider using the Subjunctive Mood in the present tense, as well as the Imperative Mood (possibly in the speaking) to improve your grade.

    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!

    I'm not sure what you mean with three past tenses: can you please explain what you mean with "Past Tense"? The way it's listed it looks like it's a different tense from the "Imperfect Tense" and "Perfect Tense" but that might just be the layout of your post.

    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!
