GCSE French Reading & Responding Tips
If the question is in English, give your answer in English.
Practise trying to understand a text, even if there are some words that you don't know.
Check that the answer you give makes sense.
The reading exam tests your ability to understand French. You may not lose marks for incorrect spellings or grammar; just make sure that a French person could understand your answers.
Work through the exam paper at a steady pace. Questions towards the end may be longer and take more thought than those at the start, so leave enough time.
