    Hi

    I am native French and I give private tuitions; I currently give tuitions to a year 10 student.

    Im fine in tems of explaining grammatically points and giving him the support where he struggles but I find it hard in terms of preparing him to exams.
    Would anybody have any advice? What should he be able to do to get a A?

    Could you recommend any link or free download for French exam paper?

    Thanks.

    Go to the website of the exam, he is studying: you can download the entire specification and some sample an dpast papers.
    Effectively, in W and S: C = 3 tenses; B = 4 tenses; A = 5 tenses ..... all with negation, opinion, justification, conjunctions and an ability to narrate/explain

    For an A grade, go on frenchteacher.net and click on our resources - plenty of material of the right level (and free!). Make sure your student knows their tenses (past, present, future), that's vital for both speaking and writing. No need to know more than 3 though, don't know where that came from (at least not with AQA, they're very clear about it).

    Edexcel want 5 for an A as far as I can tell...................but they do not determine the subject content of W & S as AQA does!

    Hmm, am I the only one to be concerned about the wide range of exam requirements across the boards?? 5 tenses for an A seems ridiculous! Just as this whole controlled assessment malarkey to be honest!
