That’s amazing! If you don’t mind me asking, how did you study/revise for them?

Thanks! I did CIE IGCSE for both, hence the letter grading. I find CIE to differ from a lot of the other exam boards in that papers are very structured/predictable, so it could be very different in your case. Honestly I didn't do too much revision for either of them, so paying attention in class and making sure to hand in homework on time is the most important advice I can give. For German, I did a lot for writing in class, so grammar became comfortable enough for me to focus more on vocabulary. Learning vocabulary is quite boring to some but it helps on all - speaking, writing, reading...etc. I spent more time relatively on the speaking section because I found it most nerve-wracking, so most practice went into that. English on the other hand is quite subjective - some people are familiar enough with the language to only focus on exam technique. The obvious first step would be to improve your vocabulary as well, but then after that I just did past papers to make sure time wasn't an issue.

Thank you so much for your response! What did you do for the speaking section please? When I come back from summer holiday I have a German speaking exam coming up which we'll be doing the questions,roleplays and saying what's in the picture.
