Do a bunch of past paper's it will help a lot. If you look for some past papers that people did last year for their GCSEs and try to ask someone (friend or family member) to test you on some questions it will be very beneficial for you

Just had my speaking exam (AQA) and to revise I did all of the practice speaking cards from the previous year - remember to disregard any cards that link to your IRP. I made flashcards and mindmaps for each topic, collating additional A04 information about Spanish speaking communities and how the topic links and I came up with questions that I thought the examiner would ask so I could practice answering. Also learnt some set higher level phrases so I could get subjunctive tenses in etc!

Just quick heads up 'past papers' and 'beneficial to you' *

Do you remember what the card was about? And what questions came up in it??

This would be incredibly helpful. Thanks.

Did mine as well. I wrote down a bunch of key phrases and repeated all of them till I remembered it. I listened to Spanish podcasts for pronunciation. I think the most important tip here is to practice, which I’m surprised no one said! I spoke with my teacher after school and I spoke with my schools Spanish assistant frequently. I did past tarjetas with them and they gave me tips. When practicing I didn’t write anything down so it forced me to think on the spot. I improved a lot by doing that. Writing things down only gets you far, find a friend or teacher and TALK WITH THEM!
Best of luck x

Yes it was, but that was the one I revised the most for so I had some key phrases under my belt. Just rambled on about religion and the church

Maybe make up your own questions, then you can use them during the exam, and answer them generically. Good luck- I have mine on Wednesday.

Sneaky advice and probably a couple of days too late but don't bother learning content from both years. For your exam, you'll receive a card from either year 1 or year 2. I chose to only revise A2 content and in the exam chose the card from the second year. Saved me the time and let me revise the second in more depth

For each topic be sure that you know one example at least, for example el racismo - los gitanos.
