    Interpreting your French A level pre-release materials

    What is the Advanced Information

    The main aim is to help you use your revision time effectively. In the case of French, you will see that the advice consists of a list of topics which will be the “major focus” of questions in your exams. You will see that in the case of Module One, for instance, your study of Lessons 1, 4 and 6 may prove to be more valuable than Lessons 2, 3 and 5. In Module Two, it appears that Lessons 7, 9 and 11 will be most important. In Module 5, Lessons 20-22 seem most significant and in Module Six it would be Lessons 24, 25 and 27. There is no Advance Information on the other modules.

    You will see that most of the sub-topics are still likely to appear in one exam or another but this information tells you precisely which paper. During the exam period, you can focus your revision between exams on the topics that are set to appear on the next paper, e.g. L’antisémitisme for Paper 3 only.

    Study the Whole Course

    If a topic is not on the list, it does not mean you can ignore it. Every topic on the specification may be relevant to the answer of some question or the focus of a question with a smaller number of marks.

    Our general advice is to complete all lessons but to keep this list of topics close to hand during the revision process and make sure you are particularly well prepared to answer questions on all these named topics.

    Key Takeaways

    • If a topic is not on the list, it does not mean you can ignore it
    • complete all lessons and Tutor Marked Assignments
    • Use the Advanced Information to tailor your revision
