Language GCSEs

I have my German yr10 mocks this week and I havent revised. I never have any motivation to revise german, and none of it stayes in my head when I do. I realy don't want to take the exams next year (or the ones this week for that matter) but realy love the class, its the highlight of my school week but I just can't deal with the exams, and I want to quit the exam but I don't know if I can and I can't leave the class even if I wanted to but they stress me out and I realy don't know what I should do about it.

Honestly do not worry about it too much- I'd probably say do as much revision as u can whether its getting a family member to test you on key vocabulary, or even doing some Seneca or Memrise. I hated French when I did my gcse especially revising it but it became one of my favourite subjects to revise when using online learning tools such as Seneca, Memrise, or quizlet as they form part of active learning. Even dedicating 10 mins a day testing urself on these websites will surely help u.\

thats usually the problem as for some reason i get really awkward about other people outside of class hearing me practice german, i think thats why I'm aufull at revision but i didnt know seneca had languages (we use it for science at school) so i might check that out. thanks for the sugestions!

i did GCSE german and found it helpful to actually speak answers rather than write them down

also have a look on quizlet, it’s useful for all subjects. an app called ‘Drops’ was pretty useful, and kind of fun too, for german - it was good for learning the basics

You don't need German GCSE - get your parents to withdraw you from the exam.

If it's affecting your other subjects it's better to take fewer GCSEs and get good grades.
