Well I don't do French, but I do German so the revision techniques are basically the same. The thing I found helpful when pushing my grade up in writing tests were to read several articles in the language I was studying in order to improve my vocab as well as being able to use more complex structures correctly.

A great way to improve in listening is to practice talking to a native of that language (this may not be possible, but if it is you should 100% try it). If not possible, then you can try several learning resources that aid with listening such as Duolingo or ActiveLearn. However, never try to improve your French listening skills by watching videos with french subtitles (Trust me it never works, you'd be wasting your time).

I'm the opposite to you! My reading and my listening are my strongest! I absolutely suck at writing, although i'm not to bad at speaking. My biggest tip is get the practice exam papers off of the AQA website, do it at home in exam conditions and the mark it. If there are any words you don't know, or get wrong, highlight them and learn them (I use quizlet). It takes a bit of time but it really helps! <3

What do you struggle with? Timing? Vocab? Not getting the exact answer the mark scheme wants?

I did french for Gcse and the tips that our teacher gave us was to:
Learn grammar and verbs for the reading and when you get into the exam try to translate the keywords u know when you go through as it will be easier to understand. Also try reading some french each day.
For listening, again i would learn the key grammar for each of the themes that you are studying. Try and listen to some french tv programmes with subtitles

Is the 'xxxx' even necessary? I'm just curious as to why people like to put that there.

So this is now considered to be polite? For me, it seems cringeworthy and unnecessary. They could have just asked for help with a 'please' on the end.

True, but that doesn't always mean it is a good or right decision.
