Vocabulary to learn for AQA GCSE Modern Foregin Languages

On the GCSE AQA Higher language books, some vocab is in grey, and some in black. I found out that the grey vocabulary is necessary and part of the spec. What I don't get is why the black vocab is there, how important it is etc. Thanks
IMO, you can't get above a grade 7 if you're just learning the "necessary vocab" when it comes to GCSE MFL (I've done 4, for reference) - learn it all, it'll take you a little longer, but you can smash the exam with just vocabulary learning and a little listening practice. Make a large Quizlet set/vocab list with everything, learn it, and bob's your uncle.

Thanks for the reply! Is the extra vocabulary just for the writing, or more generally across the exams? For context, I have an anki deck with all the base vocab on the AQA website, and am bilingual in another language which helps.

Writing + Generally: Anki is a good idea, keep up with it. There’s also a plugin to export quizlet to anki, so use that.
