I have recently done my Year 11 Mock Exams for French and here are my results
Writing:7
Listening:7
Reading:5
Speaking:6

I need help in boosting my grade for reading and speaking. Any tips? I will be very happy with a 7 or 8 overall in French as it is one of my weaker subjects

Find French kids books online and look up all the vocab you don't know (use Word Reference it's so much better than google translate). Tumblr has some very useful links to resources. Learn tenses and grammar because often they can trip you up and make you confused when reading. If you don't know a word, think about what English words it sounds like and what other French words might sound like it. Read the text and the questions carefully and make sure that you definitely answer the question fully. Check answers at the end. Change your phone into French so you have to read it every day. Read wiki articles of your favourite people or places in French.

You should print off the list of vocab on your exam board's website and learn vocab everyday, if you learn the whole booklet you can get a high grade at exam time.
You can learn the words through quizlet or something similar or just memorising.

I went from a 4 in the year 10 mock to a 7 in the year 11 mock and hope to get an 8 in the final exam by doing this.

How did you do so well on Listening? I had a Listening mock (also Higher) yesterday and it was damn hard - they speak too fast. Tell me of your ways!

I have been using quizlet quite regularly. I take the vocab that I dont know at the end of each module in the textbook and create flashcards on quizlet.

I think that it comes down to your mindset when going into the exam
In year 10 I went in and told myself that i didnt care about the grade I got and ended up getting a 2
I went into the year 11 mock and told myself to listen very carefully and concentrate. I ended up getting a 7 with 0 revision
