Hello, how do you usually revise for this paper ?
I make revision cards on themes, characters, plot, writer/director's technique; I make posters as well; I also find any past paper questions for my book (La Casa de Bernarda Alba) and film (El Laberinto del Fauno) and practice making essay plans from those- tests your knowledge and ability to make essay plans (normally give myself 5 to 10 mins to do one to practice under time pressure)
The revision guides by Hodder education are pretty good and there's loads of online resources made by teachers... hope that helps!

Paper 1- I find paper 1 pretty hard to revise for and always procrastinate. But i put all the vocab into quizlet...and then use their learn/game functions to learn the vocab. I don't use Memrise but I've heard it can be quite good, so you can give that a try. I find translations the hardest so I just practice them...a lot. And I practice doing the summaries under timed conditions, whilst trying to keep it under 90 words. If you have Kerboodle at your sixth form (i have no idea if it's just my sixth form, or if everyone has it) then they do lists of vocab that are different to the book vocab and the exercises are harder so when you do the real thing it seems easier (my teacher might just like torturing us tbh)

Speaking- my sixth form has a lady that does half an hour speaking with us a week, so we use that to practice the cards. At home I also practice doing the five minute planning for the cards- there's loads on the AQA website I think. For the IRP, I rote learn the presentation like we did for the old language GCSE, and I guess there's no real way to prepare for the questions apart from practice. If your teacher is doing your actual speaking exam with you, i guess that's good practice in terms of the questions they might ask you.

Hope that helps and isn't too long!

It does- in the year 13 mocks we've just done, I got an A* ! I also focus on the analysis during the exam and try and get as many marks for analysis as possible just in case I lose marks for the grammar side (not my strength!)

I did mine about a week and a half ago! You will be absolutely fine and you definitely know more Spanish than you think! Just make sure you have your IRP down to pat and it doesn't go over the 2 minutes. The card was fine, as long as you remember to ask 2 questions and they will ask you 2 unknown questions too. For the card, when I had to choose, I went for the one that I could talk the most about...so I could fill the 5/6 mins. I went over my research notes I made whilst I was doing the IRP before the exam, just to remind me about the topic etc. It goes by pretty fast...good luck, I'm sure you'll do great!!

you're a star!

Do you remember roughly what questions they asked you on them, as I had that one for my mock and struggled to think of things to say :/

Thank you

Not sure if you'll remember or if you looked at it, but do you know what the other card was asking about, don't worry if you don't
