any tips for revision on tenses (all of them)
I would say to make sure you know when each tense is used, particularly when it comes to the difference between the perfect and imperfect. It would also be of benefit to revise the formation of the tenses; i.e. how you get from the infinitive such as 'avoir' to the verb form you use with the subject, e.g. j'ai.

Hey! Against contrary belief, mindmaps actually worked really well for me when it came to French tenses!
Do one for each tense (formation, examples, when used), and split it into 4: -ar, -er, -ir, irregulars. It's a pain but unfortunately you just have to repeat them over and over until they're in your head.

I'm a big fan of Verbs Online for practice, if forming the tenses is what you want to practise:

I study French and German at university and am doing my year abroad at the moment.

I think the site is down at the moment, because it's not working for me at the moment either, but once it's back up it's good for conjugation practice.
