To help with listening I always listen to French radio because they speak really fast on that so when you get into the listening it seems much slower :)

Put your facebook/twitter/whatever into French

Read as many french articles or the news in french over the internet

Plan loads of essay titles that might come up

Use languages online to practice grammar

Past papers! 

Hope this helped :)

What I did for reading was to learn lots of vocabulary. I had been given a list of vocabulary, so i wrote down around 10 words and wrote the English of each one down that I knew. Once I had done that, I wrote down the meanings of the ones I didn't know and basically kept writing the French then seeing if i could remember the English meaning :L (Sorry if that sounds a bit more complicated than it is) 

With writing, I did it in a really boring way by just writing one sentence then writing it again and again until i knew it Once i did that i would learn another one, and then connect my new one with the old one. It is very time consuming, but it did me well :) 

Listening, I used the vocabulary I had learnt from reading and got someone who spoke french to test me on the by asking them aloud. If you do no know someone, you could use the revision notes section on here and download the MP3 (Dont know how well that would work) and if not, type them into google translate and then click the audio button :) 

Lastly, past papers are extremely useful for putting the vocabulary into practice. 

Hope this is kind of useful :)
