as in GCSE higher?
if that isn't what you meant, these tips might help you in general anyway:
• put post-it notes with essential vocab on things you see everyday or what you might associate with that word e.g. 'la porte' on a door
• try to communicate and respond to your friends and family in french - this will help you get into speaking conversational french
• try teaching your friends and family some French vocab (a form of active recall)
• watch french films and series! when watching a film or series on Netflix etc., put subtitles into French and audio in English and vice versa
• quizlet helps a lot with learning vocab and sentences

A tip for improving your speaking skills, in general, is to integrate French into your life a bit. It's really hard to go from speaking English to speaking French in a couple of minutes, so getting used to making the change by talking to yourself in French sometimes, and perhaps finding a penfriend who you can DM - messaging can be great as you can practice communicating spontaneously in French without thinking about accent etc, making speaking a lot easier when you're having a face to face conversation with someone! Other than that, jcarreon has suggested some great stuff!

I can't comment on tiktok, but I always find HelloTalk/ Tandem helpful - just have to make sure you're aware of the risks that come with those sorts of apps. I've mainly only spoken to really lovely people, but there will always be one.
