I have my exams this year for Spanish and French and I really want to do as well as I can. I've heard people say that all exam boards release a list of all the necessary vocabulary? But I can't seem to find one for the SQA, only for exam boards in England. Does anyone know if they have one, and if not the closest thing I could use?
Thank you

I'm pretty sure the SQA doesn't have one (and after checking again, can't find any), but these ones from schools seem pretty comprehensive...
French- https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl...n5-vocabulary/
Spanish- 2nd result here from Hyndland secondary - https://www.google.com/search?safe=s...63.1jMyrpZomrE

I wouldn't be too panicked by these if there's more than you expected (I'm sure the French one has waaay more than I knew and I managed an A1 in the exam- and remember, you get a dictionary!). Hope this helps

I wouldn't worry too much about a vocab list as there's so much that could possibly come up, rather I'd look at the course specification for N5 Modern Languages (https://www.sqa.org.uk/files_ccc/Mod...urseSpecN5.pdf) and go to Appendix 3 which has all the topics and contexts for N5 (they are the same for all languages) which will give you a better idea of what could come up and what types of vocab to know since there'll be a topic from each context in the final exam (3 reading passages + listening)
