Literally, I feel the exact same!
at the moment I'm preparing for my speaking exam. So I'm making posters on each theme that include key information, summaries and a couple of statistics oh and like how to link it with francophone countries. But I haven't gotten far because I have to revise for two other A-levels.

Yes I'm doing exactly the same thing! There's just so much to know and remember and yet we'll only be asked about one topic!! And then on top of that we have to try and get in complex structures! But relieved that I'm not the only one feeling like this and I think we're revising in the only way we can. Thank you for replying, and best of luck with your exams!!

I’m doing No et Moi. Such a dull book. I’m also doing La Haine. I’ve done my speaking, it went okay. Got patrimoine as my topic. You can’t revise much because you don’t know what will come up, but just get some facts and some complex structures in and you’ll be fine.

I feel the same!! What I'm doing is making mind maps on each scene/chapter just like a tiny summary, then i'm going to do a mind map on themes and characters and one on sentence structures to include- don't know what else I can do! They are so difficult AQA has a document on useful phrases and i could try and send that to you if you want? How are you revising for speaking?

Ah okay! I'm doing La Haine also and un sac de billes. So nervous for the speaking that my mind will just go blank!! But well done! Yep I'll try do that, there are just so many topics that we could be asked about!! Patrimoine is probably my least favourite haha, but so excited that it'll be out of the way soon!

They all sound like good ideas I really need to do the same and yeah it's true there's not much that you can do Please could you send me that document it sounds really helpful.

I'm currently just reading over my IRP notes and trying to memorise facts and statistics for each topic. Doesn't really feel like I'm doing much though which is annoying :/

ooh I've just remembered another link which was soo helpful- it gives loads of facts about each topic and little videos and links to newspaper articles, I'm currently making notes on these for each topic and for my IRP. Once on the site, click on A level at the top and all the subjects are there.
