Hey! I need some big help, for directed writing I understand what type of topics there are ( learning, culture, society and employability) however, I am aware theres so many questions for each and I was wondering if anyone had a way to help me study? and what will most likely come up?

I do Higher French too!

To revise for the directed writing I mostly do lots of practice questions. The old higher French papers are good too, even though they only have 4 bullet points.

Also I look over answers that others have written / example answers ect. to see what they included and the tenses and level of vocabulary that that use.

Finally, I use Quizlet and Memrise to learn key vocabulary and phrases that will be useful for writing my response. It's important to be flexible when responding so I try not to learn exact answers to bullet points. Having said that, I do try to plan roughly in English what I could say and keep that consistent in all my practice questions (unless the question is very specific), for example if given the chance I will be working in a hotel near Tours for the summer, and I got there by plane ect.

I hope this helps x

I mostly use paper resources given to me by my teacher. The old revised higher past papers can be found on the sqa website, and this website (http://www.leith.edin.sch.uk/languages.aspx) has the even older ones!

Understandign standards has some DW's that people have written, which you can look at and see how they were marked:
https://www.understandingstandards.o...g/DWriting2015

The memrise links i use for the DW are:
https://www.memrise.com/course/441099/directed-writing/
https://www.memrise.com/course/51863...ted-writing-2/
https://www.memrise.com/course/51955...ted-writing-3/

These are good revision for the whole course:
https://www.memrise.com/course/338562/regular-er-verbs/
https://www.memrise.com/course/11891...regular-verbs/

On Quizlet, some good ones are:
https://quizlet.com/gb/187574425/fre...g-flash-cards/
https://quizlet.com/175270581/higher...g-flash-cards/
https://quizlet.com/278019986/french...t-flash-cards/

Of course, there are many other useful resources on Memrise and Quizlet, just have a little search around to find what's right for you.

Theres lots here, and its not long till the exam now (!) so try to prioritise the most important aspects, rather than try to do everything.
