I do AQA but the papers are on the same dates.

Paper 1 I'm trying to do as many past papers as I can, particularly focusing on the listening. Not much we can do to revise it tbh, just going over grammar and vocabulary.

As for paper 2, I'm making essay plans on past questions. Running through the themes and I plan to rewatch the play and movie before the exam so it's fresh in my head. Which texts do you study?

I lose my most marks in the translations and make silly mistakes with the listening for Paper 1!!
I do Como Agua Para Chocolate and El Laberinto Del Fauno, you?

LOL I was thinking no way can the exams be on the same dates. Which other subjects do you do?

Yeah it's so easy to make basic mistakes with the translations, it's hard revising it yourself too because different versions to the answers could also be correct. Our 'hola como estas' asses wouldn't know the difference -_-

I do La Casa de Bernarda Alba and Volver. How are you revising for them?

For paper 1, I find reading Spanish news everyday is really helpful in improving my reading and translation skills and you could listen to Spanish podcasts or youtubers to help with the listening aspect of the exam. Good luck, you'll be great and always double check your work in the exam to ensure you haven't made any grammar or spelling mistakes! Hope you get your A!

I do English and History, you?

Honestly I'm just memorising quotations, with El Laberinto Del Fauno I am making sure I have points about the setting/camera angles , remembering context to put in too and then just recapping grammar. How about you?
