Any advice on revising for this particular exam?

I know exactly what to revise for all subjects apart from French! I was even considering going in without any revision to be honest, but I guess that would be a bad idea.. So what can I revise at home for this exam and French in general?

For the other French papers it would help to learn grammar, but don't think that would help too much in this paricular exam. Also for the rest of French how would you advise I revise?

Thanks

Generally revise numbers- sometimes questions ask you to note down the telephone number etc
Also, revise ways of expressing opinions as they nearly always have a table where you have to decide whether a person likes/dislikes something

well, i got 90/90 for listening, basically you should just listen to some french extracts, maybe if your book came with some listening exercises, and listening actually prepares you well for the speaking, and a bit for the reading and writing. also revise vocab about opinions, as well as digits like in 1994, know how that would sound, very important, and well, good luck!

Well, you can revise vocab, like for the other exams (although do this well in advance, rather than at the last minute). Apart from that, it's good just to get practice at listening to French, maybe by watching French films or finding a French radio station to listen to.

Well only a week and a half till listening exam, the rest are about a month away.. But I've done NO french revision yet at all, in fact only revision I've done up to now is Maths and Latin, for which I've learnt most the stuff I need to know, but still not everything!

Don't really have time for watching french films or listening to radio, so any other advice?

I know I need to learn vocab, but is there no definitive list I can use that will help me? The one on the OCR website has no english translation for words and does seem excessive!

In that case, you're probably best to look over vocab sheets that your teachers have given you. I think any definitive list is going to be excessively long as it'll include all the really simple words which you know well already. You could also use sites like http://atschool.eduweb.co.uk/rgshiwy...c/hotpotatoes/

just look at the vocab youve written down over the past two years or so. look at sheets youve done, and see if you know the vocab from those. learn the vocab you dont know - i know it sounds obvious!!
learn things like adjectives - proud, drunk, excited etc. -the less common ones
learn modes of transport etc.
learn vocab to do with hobbies, activites etc

but if you dont know the vocab in the exam, guess! if you know most of the other words, you should be able to!

also, if you dont have time to just watch a french film, download some french podcasts and listen to them on the way to school!
or, if you normally revise with music, if youre doing somehting like maths, try listening to french radio...although this might be a little confusing!

but definitely podcasts on the way to school!

For reading:
Do past reading papers, then go through when completed and note down around 20-30 words you didn't know. Find them in the dictionary because it's a longer process of finding them in comparison to google translate etc. which means your more likely to remember them. Learn those words, maybe stick them on your wall, and write them in different sentences, speak them in your head at school?? Then just keep doing reading tests and you'll find you recognise loads of vocab you didn't before and you'll find you pick up loads of new marks.
