Hello, I was just wondering if there are questions in one of the papers asking about particular tenses? e.g. preterite
Do I need to memorise all of them?

Thank you.

Don't know what board you're taking and it's a long time since I did my Spanish A Level but yes, you're expected to answer questions relating to tenses as part of the grammar component on several papers. You'll need to memorise it for reading and also know enough to write the set text essay and grammar questions.
From what I remember (I got an A*) you need to know (indicative) present, preterite, perfect, imperfect, future, conditional + perfect tense variations and subjunctive present and imperfect as well, as well as possibly using haber in subjunctive perfect constructions e.g. "me alegro que lo hayas recibido".

No direct questions on tenses but you need to know them to summarise, translate, etc etc. Knowledge on tenses is everywhere but remember, there's no tick box like : use of past tense, use of conditional,... in your essay for example or in your speaking. Writing and speaking must sound natural without trying to use X amount of tenses but with good idiomatic expressions and linking words. Saludos, Delia from Spanish no panic.
